Zoffany Paddock Shot

Progressive Zoffany Colt Gains Maiden Win

The improving Zegalo (2c Zoffany - Mzyoon, by Galileo) made a successful step up in trip to justify favoritism in the extended mile maiden at Nottingham on Wednesday.

Hussain Alabbas Lootah’s homebred colt finished third on debut last month and went one better last time out. Once again ridden by Andrea Atzeni, he led from before halfway and was ridden approaching the final furlong, staying on to score by a length and three quarters.

The son of Zoffany is the first foal out of Mzyoon, an unraced half-sister to top sprinter Society Rock (Rock Of Gibraltar), while the second dam won at Listed level.
