Zo Impressive Headed to Alabama

Zo Impressive Mother Goose

Trainer Tom Albertrani said Live Oak Plantation’s Zo Impressive came back well after her stretch run fell short in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks. She likely will be heading to the Grade 1, $600,000 Alabama on August 18.

 

After racing wide into the first turn and dropping back to last in the field of six after a half-mile, Zo Impressive rallied on the outside to chase Questing to no avail, while still finishing 2 ¼ lengths clear of third-place finisher In Lingerie, the favorite.

 

“The winner was impressive,” Albertrani said. “We just couldn’t get by. We’re very happy with our filly; she’s very consistent. She’s first or second in all [six of] her starts.”

 

Zo Impressive remains among the leaders of the 3-year-old filly division, having won the Grade 1 Mother Goose and finishing second to Contested in the Grade 1 Acorn, both this spring at Belmont Park.

 

“Right now, she’s done as much as any 3-year-old filly has accomplished,” Albertrani said.
