Zonza Wins Gr3 Snowhite Maintenance Classic
At Caulfield, Cambridge Stud's Champion New Zealand sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a group success when improving 5YO mare Zonza (Zabeel-Sonet, by Gold Brose) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Roger James in the $135,000 Gr3 Snowhite Maintenance Classic (1600m) for 4YO+ mares, over fellow 5YO mares Bonaria (Redoute's Choice-Decidity, by Last Tycoon) & Two Sugars (Dash for Cash-Miss Capucino, by Khozaam). This was Zonza's first stakes victory and took her record to 5 wins & 6 placings (including the Listed ATC Lord Mayor's Cup & Listed ARC Champion Stakes Prelude) from 13 starts for $145,197 earnings. James said Zonza could be aimed at the Gr2 Matriarch Stakes at Flemington on November 9.
