1st Aust Winner For Arazi

Friday, 9th March 2007

Victoria's Nagambie-based Independent Stallions sire Arazi (Blushing Groom-Danseur Fabuleux, by Northern Dancer) recorded his 1st Australian winner when 2YO gelding Rowzy (Arazi-Revo Diva, by Revoque) scored over 1200m at Hobart's Elwick track in Tasmania. Rowzy was a $10,000 weanling at the 2005 Inglis Victorian June Sale & subsequently passed-in for $6,000 as a yearling at the 2006 Tasmanian Thoroughbred Breeders Sale. Meanwhile 2YO filly Alfajiri (Arazi-Leotard, by Danzero) finished 3rd over 1000m at Pakenham. They followed a 3rd on debut by 2YO filly Danarazi (Arazi-Pride Of Harriet, by Danewin) over 1050m at Morphettville in Adelaide last month. Arazi's only other juvenile to race so far is 2YO gelding Aztec Prince (Arazi-Red Royalty, by Sovereign Red) who was badly injxsdured when galloped on at his only start as a short-priced favourite at Ascot in Perth in January. Arazi (a 3/4 brother to Gr1 European winner & Darley shuttler Noverre) was himself a star juvenile, winning 4 Gr1 sprints in Europe & the US to head both the 1991 European 2YO Classification & US 2YO Free Handicap.
