Society’s Chairman—Jo Zak, by Vilzak

Caren has carried the banner for the first crop of her sire, Society’s Chairman, and would give his profile an incredible boost if she became the third filly to win the Queen’s Plate in the last six years.

Society’s Chairman, a 13-year-old son of Not Impossible, stands at Shannondoe Farm in St. Thomas, Ontario, for an advertised fee of $5,000. His initial books have been modest in size, with 19 foals in his first crop and three juveniles of 2016. However, his debut class has already produced a trio of stakes winners.

Caren, the first winner for Society’s Chairman, won four stakes as a juvenile and was a Sovereign Award finalist for Canada’s champion 2-year-old filly and female sprinter honors. Society’s Chairman also has sired Code Warrior, a Grade 2-placed multiple stakes winner in California, and Sparkles’ Girl, winner of last year’s Ontario Lassie Stakes.

On his own accord, Society’s Chairman was a Grade 3-winning turf specialist who won 7 of 30 starts for $722,775.

He made his racing debut at age 5, but made up for lost time with a win in the Grade 3 Appleton Stakes and in-the-money efforts in the Grade 1 Shadwell Turf Mile and two editions of the Maker’s Mark Mile Stakes. In Canada, he won consecutive renewals of the Halton Stakes at Woodbine and placed in seven additional stakes.

Caren is one of nine winners from 12 runners out of the unraced Jo Zak, whose produce also includes Grade 2 winner Jill Robin L and stakes winner Zak’s Precocious. Jill Robin L has herself become a graded stakes producer, having Grade 3-placed Capitol Appeal.

The extended family includes stakes winners Miss Jesy, I’m Josy, and L. A. Policee.
