Curragh: Zoffany Beats Strong Suit

Strong Suit was replaced as favourite for next year's 2,000 Guineas when 'mugged' by the strong-finishing Zoffany, who gave trainer Aidan O'Brien his 11th win from the last 13 runnings of The Curragh's Keeneland Phoenix Stakes on Sunday.

For the people who don't care about the politics of Europe vs. America in the Breeders Cup races. And go to the event for the joy of watching the best horses in the world race. And also bet to make money off of those horses, whether they're from Europe or America? These comments are directed toward you. The Coolmore-Ballydoyle colt Zoffany, trained by Aidan O'Brien, is without question among the very best of the best of the European 2yr.old's. 5 wins in 6 lifetime starts. Zoffany's only loss was in the G2 Coventry Stakes at Ascot. To another top level 2yr.old, Strong Suit. But Zoffany was very badly hampered in the Coventry. Squeezed out between Strong Suit and Galtymore Lad. Ending up finishing 6th in the Coventry. But since the Coventry Stakes. Zoffany has won the Golden Fleece Stakes. A listed race. The G3 Tyros Stakes. Won by Rip Van Winkle in 2009. And most recently, made up for the Coventry flop by defeating Strong Suit with a powerful run in the G1 Phoenix Stakes. Zoffany is a very big and physical 2yr.old. He looks like he's been chiseled from stone. O'Brien will likely send this colt to America for the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf. If he does send Zoffany? As a handicapper who keeps up with European racing as closely as American racing. I strongly recommend a bet on this Ballydoyle 2yr.old. I just haven't seen any American turf 2yr.old's that are in Zoffany's league. He's already a G1 winner as a 2yr.old.
