Shinzig Retiring To Eliza Park

Wednesday, 26th April 2006

Also joining the Eliza Park roster at Romsey this season will be Gr3-winning 4YO stallion Shinzig (Danehill-Shindig, by Straight Strike) who is set to retire after contesting the upcoming Gr1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m) at Morphettville. Shinzig won the Gr3 Autumn Stakes (1400m) in Melbourne as a 3YO; he also finished 3rd in the NZ Gr1 Mudgway Stakes (1400m) & 4th in the Gr1 Australian Guineas (1600m). His dam Shindig (a half-sister to 3 stakes-winners) won 8 races including the Gr1 Coolmore Classic (1500m); she has subsequently produced 3 stakes horses following matings with Danehill, with Shinzig a full-brother to the 2006 Listed Eskimo Prince Stakes winner Strada & also Flammarosa (a dual stakes-placed winner of 3 races).
