ZARKAVA gave birth to a colt by SIYOUNI on Friday 16 April at Sheshoon Stud in Ireland. The bay foal is described by Pat Downes, manager of the Aga Khan Studs in Ireland, as “an attractive, correct colt with plenty quality. He has a lot of presence.”
This is the twelfth foal out of the Champion mare who has been a model of consistency at stud. A son of SIYOUNI who was ranked second leading European sire in 2020, he is a full brother to last year’s Listed winner ZAYKAVA. The undefeated winner of five Group 1s, ZARKAVA has been passing on her quality to her progeny, producing Stakes winner and Group 1 placed ZARKAMIYA (Frankel) and Group 1 winner ZARAK (Dubawi) who stands at Haras de Bonneval and has his first two-year-olds this year.
ZARKAVA has a three-year-old colt by Sea The Stars named Zaskar, a two-year-old filly by Dubawi named Zarka and a yearling filly by Frankel. She will be visiting Lope De Vega this year.
