The strength and class of ZACINTO and the pure speed of his maternal family have produced a potent mix of pace and power in the form of this ownership opportunity from Ellerton Zahra Racing.
EZR owners and followers would be well aware of the quality of ZACINTO’s progeny through the deeds of top performer ODEON but the stallion was no slouch himself as a Group 2-winning and Group 1-placed miler in his racing days.
ZACINTO has also sired the winner of the Group 1 2000 Guineas in New Zealand as well as the top stakes performers VASSILATOR, SERCRET ALLURE and ZIGWIG.
The female side of this geldings pedigree features speed to burn. His dam Pearly Whites, a daughter of SHARKBITE, was a dual winner over the flying 1000m course at Moonee Valley and trained by EZR. Pearly Whites is also a half-sister to the New Zealand stakes winner TRAVINO.
Such quality in the family is no surprise when you see he traces back to the broodmare MRS SOFFEL.
MRS SOFFEL is the dam of the Newmarket Handicap and Darley Sprint Classic winner RUBITANO and the stakes-winning sprinter RUBITOFF. This gelding is also related to city-winning sprinter Gran Sasso.
Speed abounds through this geldings family and he’s no exception to that rule on type.
