+ZARAK (FR), c, 2, by Dubawi {Ire} 1st Dam:Zarkava {Ire} {Horse of the Year 2008, Ch. 3yo Filly, Hwt. 2yo Filly-Fr, MG1SW-Fr, Hwt. at 11-14f & 9 1/2-11f-Fr, $4,793,989}, by Zamindar 2nd Dam: Zarkasha (Ire), by Kahyasi (Ire) 3rd Dam: Zarkana (Ire), by Doyoun (Ire)    The first progeny out of the amazing Zarkava to race, Zarak was sent off the 11-10 favorite and missed the kick slightly before racing with two behind early. Making smooth progress out wide to lead with just under a quarter mile remaining, the bay was pushed out with hands and heels to register a cozy 1 1/4-length success from Qatar Dream (Ire) (Makfi {GB}). "He was very impressive and we are thrilled with him," The Aga Khan's stud manager Georges Rimaud commented. "He had shown enough at home for him to start. The ground was heavy, but the horse answered every question. The jockey was thrilled and in the end, it was a simple operation. We are not sure what the plan will be, but I think we will leave him alone until next year now. Zarak is Zarkava's fourth foal. She also has a yearling by Redoute's Choice (Aus) and a Frankel (GB) filly. There is also the Galileo (Ire) 3-year-old [Zarkar], who has not yet raced. He is not the most precocious of horses, but that is one of those things." Lifetime Record: 1 start, 1 win, €12,500.
