Foal For Zarkava

Monday, 27th March 2017

Former superstar mare Zarkava gave birth to her fifth foal, a filly by Siyouni, last Tuesday, reports Racing Post. Zarkava's only progeny to race hitherto is her 4YO son Zarak (Dubawi), winner of the Gr3 Dubai Millennium Stakes and runner-up in the Gr1 French Derby. She also has an unraced 3YO colt by Redoute's Choice called Zarmitan, unraced 5YO son by Galileo called Zarkar, and an unraced 7YO daughter by Dalakhani called Zerkaza. The exceptional Zarkava (Zamindar) won all seven of her starts at two and three, culminating with her victory in the 2008 Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe where she swept through the field from an unpromising position to score by 2-lengths. She was the first filly or mare since Urban Sea (the dam of Sea The Stars) in 1993 to win the Arc. Zarkava won another four Gr1s, including the French Triple Crown for fillies, and was named 2008 European Horse of the Year.
