Monday, 14th June 2010

In Germany, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a group success when his colt Zazou (Shamardal-Zaza Top, by Lomitas) scored a 2-lengths victory in the €100,000 (A$145,000) Gr2 Oppenheim Union-Rennen (2200m) for 3YOs at Cologne. Zazou (ridden by Terry Hellier for trainer Mario Hofer) defeated fellow colts Lindentree (Dai Jin-Lindenblute, by Surumu) & UK-bred Baschar (Starcraft-Belle Et Deluree, by The Minstrel). Zazou was a €38,000 (A$55,000) yearling at the 2008 BBA September Sale; overall he now has 4 wins (also including April's German Gr3 Preis Dr Busch Memorial over 1700m at Krefeld) & 2 placings (including 2009's Gr1 Criterium De Saint-Cloud over 2000m at Saint-Cloud) from 8 starts for €248,575 (A$360,000) earnings.
