More Longchamp success for Zamindar

FOR the second time this month, the Longchamp card was lit up by the progeny of Zamindar, who sired this afternoon's Prix du Conseil de Paris winner Crossharbour.

Although not in the same league as Zarkava, Crossharbour owns a progressive profile and today proved he was a genuine Group 2 performer with a game display to fend off Purple Moon.

A place at stud could beckon for Crossharbour at the end of his racing career, especially as he is a half-brother to Arc hero Rail Link, who stands at Banstead Manor Stud. Another half-brother, the Group 1-placed Chelsea Manor, is at stud in France. Their dam, Docklands, is a half-sister to the July Stakes winner Wharf.

Crossharbour traces to Dahlia's three-parts sister Golden Alibi, a $1.1m yearling purchase by Juddmonte in 1979. Although unraced, the daughter of Empery more than paid her way, becoming the ancestress of other high-class performers such as Linda's Lad and Wharf.
