Zoffany filly is British stakes winner

Light Up Our World (Zoffany) winning the Distaff Stakes (L) at Sandown

The Richard Hannon-trained Light Up Our World (3f Zoffany-Shine Like A Star, by Fantastic Light) made all at Sandown on Saturday to secure another black-type win for Zoffany in the Listed Coral Distaff.

Derek Boocock’s consistent home-bred looks set for a productive summer on the back of this length and a half victory in a competitive field in the mile event.

“Light Up Our World fully deserves this,” said Hannon. “Derek Boocock fancied his chances in the G1 Prix de Diane and races like that but she slightly let us down mid-season. She´s put on a bit of weight in the last few weeks and it´s lovely to see her back.”

Zoffany was also on the mark in South Africa on Saturday when Zodiac Ruler (3c Zoffany-Sybarite, by Last Tycoon) took the G2 Golden Horseshoe in Durban.
