FRANKEL-ZARKAVA FILLY LANDS FIRST STAKES RACE
Beautifully-bred Aga Khan filly Zarkamiya - who is by FRANKEL out of the outstanding racemare Zarkava - landed her first stakes race on Saturday (14th July) in the Prix de Thiberville L. at ParisLongchamp.
Trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre said: “She’s a sweet filly, but she has a tendency to worry about everything and her rider has to manage her stress. “He did that very well today and she was able to show her true quality. Of course, you would
expect there is improvement to come as she is very lightly-raced and so well-bred, so we’ll see how she comes out of this. The [Gr.3 Prix] Minerve at Deauville is a possibility.”
