Havana Gold colt Zuenoon has Classic entries

Tweenhills stallion Havana Gold is likely to again be represented in Classics as his son Zuenoon holds entries in this year's Derby, Irish 2,000 Guineas and Irish Derby.

Zuenoon won two of his three starts last summer, beating subsequent Gr.3 winner Coral Beach at Galway and mastering next-time-out winner Cardini (later Gr.2-placed) at Killarney.

Zuenoon relished the step up to a mile for his second success and will stay even further. He's the first foal out of unraced Dalakhani mare Zindana and was bred by his owner H. H. Aga Khan.

Grey colt Zuenoon is trained by Dermot Weld and has been ridden in all his starts by Declan McDonogh.

Also entered in the Irish 2,000 Guineas is Phospor, another son of Havana Gold. He went very close on his debut and will relish going beyond seven furlongs. Trained by Martyn Meade, Phosphor was bred by Tally-Ho Stud out of Fantastic Light mare Luminous Gold.

Another Havana Gold with a big entry is the 2017 colt out of Dai Jin mare Inez - he cost 250,000gns at last year's Tattersalls Book 1 sale, went into training with Richard Hannon, has been named Mambo Nights and holds an engagement in the 2020 Derby.

Havana Gold covered his biggest book of mares last year, with 50% of them either Stakes performers or dams of Stakes performers, so there's plenty to look forward to.
