Zacada Returns Home

Thursday, 24th September 2015

Talented 3YO Zacada (Zabeel-Lacada, by Giant's Causeway) is returning home to New Zealand after failing to make an impression in either of his Australian starts, reports NZ Racing Desk. Trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman held Gr1 Victoria Derby ambitions for the son of Zabeel, but his campaign was halted after his unplaced runs at Sandown and Caulfield. Zacada raced erratically and hung badly on the home bend when contesting the Cove Hotel Handicap (1600m) at Caulfield last Saturday with stewards consequently ordering the horse to trial before he races again. Baker and Forsman had had hopes for Zacada after he scored a highly impressive 4.8-length win at Arawa Park in July.
