On Sunday May 19 two classic races took place at Modena’s Ippodromo Ghirlandina.
 
The fillies first battled in the 88,000€ purse Premio Unione Europeo Filly (1600 meters autostart, 13 starters) with the 1.11.9kr timed harness racing victory earned by Zaniah Bi (4f Equinox Bi-Fendi Bi-Sugarcane Hanover) reined by Alessandro Gocciadoro to her seventh career victory in 22 appearances.
 
She sat the pocket until the final bend when she zoomed to the front and secured a four-length score over Zabriskie OK (4f Conway Hall- Georgia Pines-Pine Chip) with Bjorn Goop aboard.
 
Third was Zealand As (4f Donato Hanover-Fortune As- Tenor de Baune) with Rene Legati up.

 

The male adversaries contested the 407,000€ purse Premio Unione Europea (2080 meters, 13 starters) and it was a battle between pacesetter Zacon Gio (4m Ruty Grif-May Glade Font SM-Yankee Glide) piloted by Roberto Vecchione and timed in 1.11.2kr. Zacon Gio won for 18 th time in 28 lifetime starts.

His sire is a son of Varenne. Second finishing was Face Time Bourbon (4m Ready Cash-Vita Bourbon-Love You) with Bjorn Goop up for trainer Sebastien Guarato, timed the same as the winner.

Face Time was away fourth and moved first up and within a half-length of the leader entering the final turn. Then Zacon Gio pulled away to a three- length advantage. Late in the lane Zacon tired under heavy urging from Vecchione and Face Time pulled back to within a quarter-length at the wire. Third was Zidane Grif (4m Ready Cash-Taffeta’Grif-Varenne) handled by G.P. Minnucci. Zlatan (4m Napoleon Bar) was fourth.
