Zafonic Adds US Gr2

Monday, 31st July 2006

Ill-fated Arrowfield Stud shuttler Zafonic (Gone West-Zaizafon, by The Minstrel) added a US group success when daughter Attima (Zafonic-Guarded, by Eagle Eyed) scored a front-running 1.25-lengths victory in the US$150,000 Gr2 San Clemente Handicap (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YO fillies at Del Mar. Attima (ridden by Victor Espinoza for trainer Julio Canani) defeated Sol Mi Fa (Distant Music-Sil Sila, by Marju) & Soothsay (Mujadil-Second Omen, by Rainbow Quest). Attima now has 4 wins (also including the Gr2 Honeymoon Breeders' Cup Handicap over 9 furlongs at Hollywood Park, plus runner-up last season in France's Gr3 Prix la Rochette at Longchamp in Paris) from 9 starts for US$252,676 earnings.
