Yulong Bred and Sold Winner Salutes

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday August 19

As time goes on we are going to see a lot more of the Yulong brand carried by winners in Victoria and beyond with Divine Diosa doing the job at Sandown on Wednesday for the Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra stable.

Bred and sold by Yulong, Divine Diosa was purchased by Ellerton Zahra Racing Pty Ltd from their draft for $90,000 at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale and broke the ice when saluting in the 1400m fillies maiden.

The daughter of Teofilo (IRE) was placed at two of three previous starts at Echuca and Bendigo and showed the benefit of that experience and race fitness to win by a length under Jamie Kah.


She’s a work in progress and I think next year she’ll be a cracking filly for us,” said Simon Zahra.

Divine Diosa is bred to appreciate a trip as her career unfolds as she is the second winner for La Siroque, a winning half-sister by Zabeel to Group III winner Crafty Irna from Group I winner Zirna.


Divine Diosa was bred and sold as a yearling by Yulong

Sadly for Yulong, La Siroque died last year and Divine Diosa is her final foal.
