ZARIB (Ire), 2c,
Azamour – Zariziyna (Dalakhani)
Owner Breeder H H Aga Khan,
Trainer: M Halford
Zarib (Azamour) showed good progress from his debut to reach the frame in a useful looking maiden here in September and he indicated that he had made further
progress with a game win over Vector Force (Kodiac).
Zarib is the first foal out of the placed Zariziyna (Dalakhani), who is a half-sister to the Listed Galtres Stakes heroine and Gr.2 Park Hill Stakes second Set To Music (Danehill Dancer) and the Listed Trigo Stakes runner-up Zarafsha (Alzao). They are out of the unraced
Zarabaya (Doyoun), who has bred three successful offspring. She is a half-sister to the Listed Oaks Trial heroine Zafadola, who also finished second in the Gr.2 Blandford Stakes and third in the Gr.1 Irish St Leger. At stud Zafadola bred the Gr.3 Prix des Reservoirs winner
Emily Bronte (dam of the Gr.3 Supreme Stakes and Gr.3 Prix de Ris-Orangis scorer Lockwood) and the Listed Flying Fillies Stakes victrix Zelanda.
The latter then became the dam of the Gr.3 Prix de Ris-Orangis victor Time Prisoner and the Listed Empress Stakes winner Pearl Grey, and she is the grandam of the Listed-placed Balty Boys. The third dam is the unraced Blushing
Groom mare Zarafa and her siblings are headed by a pair of Listed-placed runners in Zareef and Zallaka.
Zariziyna has a yearling colt by Rock Of Gibraltar and a filly foal by Authorized.
