Zourion (NZ)

Zourion was purchased from Pencarrow’s Karaka 2022 Book 1 draft for $475,000 by Te Akau Racing’s David Ellis for Brendan & Jo Lindsay’s Cambridge Stud. The filly by Zoustar out of Irion has made an impressive start to her racing career being unbeaten in her first two starts. She has the pedigree and talent in order to become a top class filly for trainer Mark Walker.

Having won on debut at Taupo, she took a big step forward, impressively winning the Group Two Matamata Breeders’ Stakes beating Pignan (subsequent winner of the Group One Manawatu Sires Produce Stakes), by 6.1 lengths. These successes have seen her accumulate $76,840 in prize money in just two career starts.

Irion (NZ) is an exciting mare that has produced three winners from three foals of racing age, including the very talented mare Pearl of Alsace (NZ).
