Sire: Zacinto

Colour: Bay

Dam: Bequests

Sex: Colt

Age: 1

Foaled: Oct 22, 2019

Country: New Zealand

This colt by Zacinto was purchased from the Book One Karaka Sale for NZ$100,000.

A leading sire in New Zealand in his first and second season at stud, Zacinto has now sired Stakes winners from 2-year-old through to 6-year-olds. Sale ring success has seen his yearlings sell for up to 14 times his service fee and with his largest crop of foals now 3-year-olds, the future looks incredibly exciting.


Zacinto is a son of Dansili, who is a son of Danehill. That is some of the best horse blood in the world. A short race career, of his 11 starts, he had 3 wins and two seconds. As a three-year-old Zacinto was a Group two winner over a mile, a Listed winner, and placed 2nd in the Group One Ascot Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.

Zacinto’s most successful progeny include Group One winner Ugo Foscolo (a full brother to this colt), Secret Allure, Odeon, Vassilator and Zigwig to name a few. Of Zacinto’s 125 runners to hit the track, 62 have been winners. With an improved book of mares now going to Zacinto, this stat will be on the up for sure!

This colt of ours has recently had a significant pedigree update, his half brother by Tavistock, Cotehele, was an impressive winner at Newcastle on April 22. Sitting at the rear of the field throughout the race, he went on to win effortlessly by 3.55L.



Out of the dam Bequests, she is a daughter of Stravinsky. A New Zealand bred mare, she raced in Australia and was a three time winner over 1200m. She is a half sister to Black Type performer Green Roller. The dam of two foals to races, both have been winners! The full brother to this colt we are offering, Ugo Foscolo, had 6 wins as a 2YO and 3YO over 1100m to 1600m. Winning the Group One New Zealand Two Thousand Guineas and the Group Two Hamilton Vet Equine Stakes.


This colt is now at John Ledger’s at Wangaratta going through his education process. Once completed, he will spell for 6 weeks, pre train and then come to Caulfield.

The following is a video taken on April 15 at John Ledgers..



Costs include purchase price, vetting (x-rays and scope), Airfreight, 12 months insurance, Transport (in New Zealand and  Melbourne to Wangaratta, breaking in, one months agistment, Studbook Clearance and GST.
