Son Of Fastnet Rock Storms To Maiden Success

Nagano (3g Fastnet Rock - Nazym, by Galileo) swooped late to land Friday’s ten furlong maiden at Nottingham in the colours of owner/breeder Nurlan Bozakov.

The Roger Varian-trained bay caught the eye on last month’s debut, when running home late to finish a close third and was sent off favourite as he stepped up in trip. Racing towards the back of the field under David Egan, he began to improve from three furlongs out and ran on strongly entering the final furlong. Quickening past his rivals, he led by two and a quarter lengths on the line.

Nagano becomes the third winner out of Nazym, herself a three-parts sister to Listen and Sequoyah. The son of Fastnet Rock is bred on the sale cross as Group 1 winners Intricately, Qualify, Rivet and Zhukova.
