Tara Madgwick - Friday August 31
French bred Zoffany gelding Carzoff (Fr) gave champion trainer Chris Waller another feature race win when taking out the $160,000 Listed Wyong Cup on Friday.

A progressive gelding working his way through the grades, Carzoff surged clear to win the 2100 metre staying test by more than a length with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

Bought from Europe as a tried horse, Carzoff (image Steve Hart) runs for a big group of stable clients and carries the colours of part-owner Nick Vass.

Carzoff is the 18th stakes-winner for Dansili stallion Zoffany (IRE), who shuttled to Coolmore for four seasons covering 213 mares in his last year 2015, so has a big crop of two year-olds to run here this season.
