Zozos Racing News

A runner-up finish behind Epicenter in the 1 3/16-mile Louisiana Derby (G2) all but assured the Brad Cox-trained Zozos of a place in the 2022 Kentucky Derby field. A homebred for Barry and Joni Butzow, Zozos had won his two previous races and was a solid second favorite at Fair Grounds. He is by the speed-oriented Munnings, whose progeny are only rarely known for getting past nine furlongs, out of Papa’s Forest, a mare by Forestry whose nine wins were between 5 1/2 furlongs and one mile. Stamina would look to be a challenge on pedigree but he ran out the Louisiana Derby well enough to suggest he should manage a further half furlong at Churchill Downs.
