Golden Slipper-Placed Sire Zizou Sold To The Philippines
Former high-class juvenile Zizou (Fusaichi Pegasus-Natural Is My Name, by Naturalism) has been sold to stand at stud in the Philippines in a deal brokered by Magic Millions's David Chester. Formerly based at Turangga Farm in New South Wales, the son of Fusaichi Pegasus is the most successful Australian sire sold to the Philippines and will stand at Albert Dichaves' Magnus Farm in the Batangas Provence. Runner-up in both the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes and the Gr1 Golden Slipper following a successful debut victory in the time-honoured Maribyrnong Plate, Zizou was a $450,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions January Sale. His yearlings have regularly sold for in excess of $100,000 each season and he has established himself as a success at stud. With 85 individual winners from just over 130 runners, Zizou is the sire of stakes-winners Everage, Marseille Roulette, Pitstop and Zoutenant.
