1st Foal To NZ Gr1 Mare Zirna

Thursday, 1st September 2005

In New Zealand, Westbury Stud's 7YO former champion racemare Zirna (Deputy Governor-Riverly Lass, by Gleam Machine) produced her 1st foal yesterday:a colt by Arrowfield Stud's Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning stallion Danzero (Danehill-Confidentially, by Kaoru Star). Zirna notched 7 wins (including the Gr1 NZB Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes & Gr1 Singapore Gold Cup) in 29 starts for over NZ$1.4 million earnings; in 2003 she was voted Singapore Horse-Of-The-Year & Champion Stayer (with her victories also including the Raffles International Cup & Singapore Derby Trial). She is to be covered by Cambridge Stud's multiple champion sire Zabeel this season.
