Sadly 13-year-old Coolmore stallion Zoffany was euthanised today owing to liver failure. “Zoffany was a great servant and he’ll be a big loss”, said Coolmore’s David O’Loughlin.

The son of Dansili, bred by Croom House Stud, won the Phoenix Stakes-Gr.1 at a juvenile and ran a career best when runner-up to Frankel, beaten just three quarters of a length, in the St James’s Palace Stakes-Gr.1 at Royal Ascot.

His first crop conceived at €7,500 included three juvenile Group/Stakes winners at Royal Ascot namely Waterloo Bridge in the Norfolk Stakes-Gr.2, Illuminate in the Albany Stakes-Gr.3 and Washington DC in the Windsor Castle Stakes-L.R. This initial crop also included Gran Premio del Jockey Club-Gr.1 winner and St Leger Stakes-Gr.1 runner-up Ventura Storm.

Off the back of this early success, Zoffany attracted several high-quality books of mares which resulted in him siring some top-notch performers. In 2019 his daughter Albigna, owned and bred by the Niarchos Family, proved herself one of the best fillies in Europe when winning the Prix Marcel Boussac-Gr.1.

In the latest season Zoffany was sire of three Group-winning juveniles in the shape of National Stakes-Gr.1 winner Thunder Moon, Naas Juvenile Sprint Stakes-Gr.3 winner and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf-Gr.1 runner-up Mother Earth and Marble Hill Stakes-Gr.3 winner Minaun. Zoffany’s 2020 yearlings sold for up 580,000gns, a filly bred by James Cloney of Cn Farm and purchased by MV Magnier from consignors Highclere Stud.
