“he's very smart, and just about the best of the miling 3yo’s after Frankel" Timeform
“Zoffany had a flying start to his stallion career, siring Royal Ascot winners in his first crop. He now has bigger crops from better mares on the way and I think the best is yet to come. I'm a big fan of Dansili (GB) and I think Zoffany could be one of the leading sires in Europe in the next few years.” Laurent Benoit (Broadhurst Agency)
