2yo stakes winner for Zoffany

There was more black-type victory for Zoffany in Italy on Sunday when Opinion Maker (2c Zoffany-Bella Estella, by Sternkoenig) took the Listed Criterium di Pisa on Sunday. Trained by the Botti family for Scuderia Effevi, the colt looks set to step up into Group company when he returns next year. “He is an improving colt and he handled the course well. The G3 Premio Pisa could be his first target next season,” Alduino Botti told EBN. Opinion Maker was bred in Ireland by the Kildare Racing Syndicate.

Meanwhile, mares in foal to Zoffany made a big hit at the recent breeding stock sales producing prices of €680,000, 575,000gns, 450,000gns etc.
