ZAAKI NOMINATED FOR ALL STAR MILE

Trainer Annabel Neasham has confirmed that the $5m All Star Mile is a very attractive race for her stable star Zaaki to aim for after the import won three Group 1 titles during an up and down Spring Campaign

Zaaki Nominated for the $5m All Star Mile

Zaaki had a pretty turbulent Spring winning multiple Group 1 titles before being withdrawn from the W.S. Cox Plate the day of the race and then rounded out his campaign with a win in the G1 Mackinnon Stakes.

Now one of the best milers in Australia is being aimed at the richest mile race in the world having been nominated for the $5 All Star Mile in March 2022.

The 7 year old import is well liked in Australia after having pieced together such a strong 2022 campaign and should qualify for the race with ease.

“His record here speaks for itself so you’d like to think he’ll receive enough votes to get into the top 10,” Neasham said.

“The All-Star Mile is a very attractive race for Zaaki, we’d want to have him wound up and ready to go so we’d probably look to have one lead-up race in Sydney before taking him to Melbourne.

“We’ll likely only give him three runs during the autumn because we’re very keen to bring him back down to Melbourne for the Cox Plate.”

A spike in temperature led to Zaaki being withdrawn from the Cox Plate in the Spring and Neasham feels that there is unfinished business for her runner in Victoria.

“Obviously we were very disappointed to have to withdraw him from the Cox Plate on the morning of the race, but to win the Mackinnon was a pretty big consolation prize,” Neasham said.

“I really like the concept of the All-Star Mile, there’s already been a big buzz even though it’s only been on the calendar for a few years now, so hopefully we can get both our horses into the race.”

Zaaki currently sits on the top line of betting for the $5m feature alongside Mick Price and Michael Kent jr trained I’m Thunderstruck.
