Zong has First Stakes Winner

Louisiana based stallion Zong had the first stakes winner of his career Sunday, August 9, 2016 at Suffolk Downs.

Jeb, 4-year-old filly by Zong out of Never Neverland, won the $75,000 First Episode Stakes at Suffolk Downs Sunday. The filly won by ¾, going 1 mile, 70 yards in 1:44.85. The victory was her fourth and brings her earnings to $78,033.

Just a day earlier, another Zong filly, Tania (Blue’s River Gal) ran 2nd in the Louise Kimball Stakes, also at Suffolk Downs. After an early lead, the 3-year-old was edged in the final strides of the race to come in just a head behind winner Angry Patty.

From only seven starters to date, Zong has four winners. Five of his seven runners have been in the money this year. The son of Unbridled’s Song out of Storm Cat mare, Zing, stands at Indian Creek Thoroughbred Farm in Spearsville, Louisiana for a fee of $1,500.
