Latest Update - "Mr Zanetti is sound and Roger is happy with him. He is due to start walking next week." 06/11/20
This colt was bought from the Tattersalls Ascot Sales for 17,500 Guineas by Nick and Roger Fell.
He is a colt who Nick has been tracking since early 2020. He is a good-looking son of Requinto and is an excellent physical who moves well.
He was prepping well ahead of the sale and was expected to sell for a lot of money but then picked up a minor injury 7 days before the breeze. He managed to get through the breeze but was clearly feeling the injury during the breeze and did not breeze as well as the Consignor expected him to do.
He is currently sound and has been since 2 days after the sale, June 27th.
He has had a period of box rest and requires further box rest until the last week of July before he can return to training.
He is the first foal out of a sister to Tullius who was a multiple Group winner over 7 and 8 furlongs.
This colt carries a moderate risk as the injury could re occur in training, but is a horse Nick was very keen to buy and given a clear run, we should be ready to see him on the track in late September.
Nick recommends this horse highly to anyone who wants a potentially high-class performer for the final third of the year.
