Tazaral (Fastnet Rock) Impresses At Gowran Park

Son Of Fastnet Rock Shows Class On Return

Tazaral (3g Fastnet Rock - Tarana, by Cape Cross) made an impressive seasonal debut on Monday when running out a five length winner of the Thomastown Maiden at Gowran Park.

Racing over an extended nine furlongs, the Aga Khan homebred chased the leaders under Colin Keane and made headway into second from two furlongs out. Asserting approaching the final furlong, he soon went clear, leaving his rivals to fight for placings.

Dermot Weld is very familiar with the winner’s pedigree, having trained his half-sister Tarnawa to win at the highest level on three occasions, while his success with Fastnet Rock includes two Group 1 wins with Fascinating Rock (Fastnet Rock).
