City Zip filly tops first day of OBS April under-tack show


A City Zip filly turned in the fastest furlong workout on the first day of the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co. spring 2-year-olds in training sale under-tack show, covering the distance in :9.60 seconds.

The chestnut filly is out of the winning Petionville mare Danse Kongo, who has produced four winners from as many to race, including stakes-placed winner Copy My Swagger. She is from the family of Grade 1 winners Vergeness and Nijinsky’s Secret, Grade 1-placed winner Palacio de Amor, and Grade 2-placed winner Tangled Tango. She is consigned by Old South Farm, agent.

Three colts tied for the fastest time at two furlongs, with a time of :20.80 seconds over the Ocala Training Center’s synthetic Safetrack surface.

One of them was a Flatter colt named Flat Jack, out of the winning Personal Flag mare Adena’s Girl, who is the dam of seven winners from eight to race, including stakes-placed winner and stakes producer Ready and Tough. Consigned by Ocala Stud, agent, Flat Jack’s notable family members include champion Prairie Bayou, Grade 2 winner Flitch, and Grade 3 winners Social Business and Ward McAllister.

Also setting the co-fastest quarter mile time on Monday was Wonderfella, a Harlan’s Holiday colt out of the Grade 3-placed winning Carson City mare Carleaville, who has two winners from three to race. His page also includes Grade 2 winner Silentlea. Southern Chase Farm consigns the Maryland-bred colt as agent for Webb Carroll.
