Sizzling Filly Wins Magic Millions Adelaide 2YO Classic
Tara Madgwick – Monday March 12
Just a day after Sizzling Belle ran the race of her life for a brave second in the Group III Black Opal Stakes in Canberra, her sire Sizzling was back in the frame in another juvenile feature with unbeaten filly Zizzis taking out the $200,000 Magic Millions Adelaide 2YO Classic at Morphettville.
Prepared by Patrick Payne for a big team of Prime Thoroughbreds owners, Zizzis scored a bold front running debut win at Bendigo last month giving connections the confidence to send her to Adelaide for this lucrative sales incentive race.
Zizzis as a yearling
In a competitive field of 14 featuring two time stakes-winner Nomothaj as favorite, Zizzis proved much the best, powering clear under Billy Egan to score a dominant victory in the 1200 metre dash.
“She’s a real professional,” said Billy Egan, who also won on the filly at Bendigo.
“She’s a credit to Paddy and his team.”
Zizzis has now banked nearly $150,000 in winning her first two starts.
“We were really happy with her first up win and thought she had come on well since then,” said Payne.
“We love the Sizzling breed, they are very sensible and make good racehorses. They just want to please you.
“We’ll take her home now and see how she pulls up before working out where we go next.”
A $120,000 Magic Millions purchase for Prime Thoroughbreds from the Edinburgh Park draft, Zizzis is the third winner from Senro Kisaki, who was covered again by Sizzling last spring.
Prime Thoroughbreds snapped up the current yearling from Senro Kisaki at the 2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale paying $85,000 for her filly by Rubick.
Bred and offered for sale by Edinburgh Park’s Ian Smith, Zizzis is one of four winners for Snitzel’s Group I winning son Sizzling, who has three entries for the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale and a further seven for the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale next month.
