He was trying :( , just too far back and goes too wide for a horse his size I think, I do think he looks better on dirt if he gets another chance. How many times do they try before giving up? Have never heard why Cozmic One had so long off but he did make dramatic improvement and he's only had 3 starts, afraid the little one will always be a heartbreaker :cry:

Ziconic was closing fast. Lost by only a head? He might have got up there if the race was a touch longer or he moved a touch sooner. He runs exactly like his dam but lacks her size and speed. I think he'll get there next time.

he always seems to get off slowly - and yes, he is always running wide on the home turn - he is little, but he is trying. I thought they should have kept him on the turf - but he ran well on the dirt today - so maybe next time.

Ziconic finished 2nd beaten by a neck, on August 2, 2017, at DEL MAR in Race 4.
Off odds: 6.80

Ziconic won the gallop out.

Who had, "Cozmic One and Ziconic perform better this meet than Arrogate and Drefong," in their pool? #champions

Now Ziconic knows how his mom felt against Blame.

Mark‏ @ShamIAmNot
Ziconic is a lot like his mom in that it will also take him until like his 20th start before he gets a different result

Maybe he should spend a semester with Wesley Ward, learning how to break like one of Ward's two-year-old rockets. ;) :mrgreen:

I think if he were to break much quicker and not drop back so far, he'd have no problem breaking his maiden. But he's too much of a slug out of the gate and doesn't have his mom's turn of foot.

IMO, his problem is that he doesn't have his dam's stride length. Comes with being about two hands shorter than his Amazonian mom. :P

I think his problem is that he's slow.
