Zanbagh gets the chance to improve on her G1 placings in Saturday's Coolmore Legacy

Baguette, Tie The Knot and Spinning Hill are just three of the famous horses raced by the Tait family over their many decades in racing.

And although she doesn’t have quite the same record as those multiple Group One winners, Zanbagh is right up there in the pecking order with her owner Sandy Tait.

A last-start winner of her second Group Two Emancipation Stakes (1600m), Zanbagh gets the chance to improve on her Group One placings in Saturday’s Coolmore Legacy (Queen Of The Turf) Stakes (1600m).

“She was magnificent last time,” Sandy Tait said.

“She is right up there with the best mares we’ve had. She is one of the most genuine horses and always tries.”

As a three-year-old, Zanbagh was runner-up in both the VRC and Australian Oaks when trained by Guy Walter.

After Walter’s death almost three years ago, Zanbagh was transferred to Patrick Payne at Ballarat but failed to recapture her form.

Tait considered retiring the mare but decided to give her another chance in Sydney, sending her to John Thompson at Randwick.

She has thrived in Thompson’s care and along with her two Emancipation Stakes wins, she has also run second twice in the Group Two race named for her late trainer.

“John has replicated what Guy was able to do with her and keeps her reasonably fresh,” Tait said.

While he considered retiring Zanbagh a couple of years ago, that is now a long way from her owner’s mind with the daughter of his 2004 Australian Oaks winner, the Walter-trained Wild Iris.

“This may not be her last season,” Tait said.

“Spinning Hill won a Group One race as a seven-year-old.”

Also trained by Walter, Spinning Hill won her second Manikato Stakes in 2003.

Zanbagh is a $13 chance at Luxbet with Silent Sedition the $4.40 favourite after her last-start Group One win in the William Reid Stakes, ahead of Foxplay at $6, and Dixie Blossoms and Heavens Above at $8.

“It’s a very strong race,” Tait said.

“It won’t be easy but I’m sure Zanbagh will run well.”
