Dansili juvenile Zoffany lands Group 1 honours

Keeneland Phoenix Stakes (Group 1), Curragh, 6f

ZOFFANY (Dansili - Tyranny by Machiavellian)

Breeder: Epona Bloodstock Ltd

ZOFFANY netted a fifth win of his six-race career when flashing home to become Dansili's second Group 1-winning juvenile and his first colt to achieve that honour.

Dansili's versatility as a sire was shown at Glorious Goodwood recently when seven-year-old Illustrious Blue took the Goodwood Cup over 2m. And at theother end of the spectrum, he has in Zoffany a sharp, early two-year-old who is right at the top of his division.

The fourth foal of Tyranny, Zoffany is the first of three runners to have won. Tyranny is out of Dust Dancer, a Group 3 winner of the Prix de la Nonette over 1m2f at Deauville who also produced Spotlight, a Listed winner over a mile as a juvenile and a Grade 2 winner in the US at three.
