Zeal & Zest quickened well at the top of the straight, but then started to race green in the closing stages. However he dug down deep under a strong ride from jockey Chase Maujean, to win a good contest over 2000m at Turffontein in a MR80 Handicap, on 30 July 2017. He is still a bit immature and will improve as he strengthens up. Congratulations to owners, Pravin Chetty, Darren Simpson, Adrian Giuricich, Brian Seggar, Sunil Mungaroo and Gary Alexander. Zeal & Zest was bred by Summerhill Stud!
