GOODWOOD’S racehorse owners are celebrating another superb win for their current two-year-old.
Goodwood Zodiac continued his impressive debut season with a length-and-three-quarters win in the seven-furlong toteplacepot Nursery Handicap at Epsom after going off at 6/1.
It was a second straight victory and third top-two place in five starts for the Goodwood Racehorse Owners’ Group.
GROG Racing manager Gail Brown said: “Goodwood Zodiac ran a smashing race to win in convincing fashion. Drawn from stall three under Freddy Tylicki, our colt looked a picture of health in the preliminaries.
“He broke smartly from the stalls and settled beautifully in mid-division before making headway two furlongs from home. A furlong from home his jockey squeezed him to the front of affairs and he lengthened really well to win going away by almost two lengths. It was a very solid performance off his current mark of 80.”
Brown added: “No firm decision has been taken as to whether he will race again this season.”

Meanwhile, time is running out to join GROG’s 23rd scheme, which will see a new yearling bought to race next year and will involve Goodwood Zodiac’s three-year-old season.
