1st Winner for US Gr1-Winning Freshman Sire Jazil
In Turkey, 2006 US Gr1 Belmont Stakes-winning 8YO sire Jazil (Seeking The Gold-Better Than Honour, by Deputy Minister) recorded his 1st winner when Kentucky-bred 2YO filly Asligibi (Jazil-Tajannub, by Dixieland Band) scored on debut over 800m at Ankara for trainer Serdar Poyraz. Asligibi was a US$25,000 weanling at the 2009 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. Her sire Jazil (a half-brother to both 2007 Gr1 Belmont Stakes winner & champion 3YO filly Rags To Riches, as well as Gr2-winner Casino Drive) stands at Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Farm in Kentucky for US$7,500. Jazil (a US$725,000 yearling at the 2004 Keeneland September sale) retired with 2 wins from 11 starts (plus 5 runner-ups including the 2006 Gr1 Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct & 4th in the Gr1 Kentucky Derby) for US$890,532 earnings.
