Video – First season sire Sergei Prokofiev gets first winner

In an exciting start to the Irish Flat season, Amo Racing showcased their prowess once again as their juvenile, Arizona Blaze, by first-season sire Sergei Prokofiev, clinched victory in the opening 5f maiden at the Curragh. This victory follows their success last year when Amo Racing celebrated a Group 1 winner in the same race. The colt’s win was marked by a captivating duel with Rowdy Yeats, ultimately asserting his class to triumph by a length and a quarter.

Arizona Blaze’s triumph adds another feather to Amo Racing’s cap, with their distinctive purple silks gracing the winner’s enclosure yet again. David Egan, Amo Racing’s newly retained jockey, piloted the colt to victory, showcasing his professionalism and skill in the saddle. Egan expressed his admiration for Arizona Blaze’s performance, highlighting the colt’s tenacity and impressive finish.

Reflecting on his experience with the Amo Racing team and their promising string of two-year-olds, Egan expressed optimism about the season ahead. With the operation led by Kia Joorabchian, who counts Champion Stakes hero King Of Steel among his charges, Egan looks forward to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.

Trainer Adrian Murray echoed Egan’s sentiments, emphasizing Arizona Blaze’s potential for further improvement. Murray, no stranger to success on the big stage, eyes Royal Ascot as the next target for the talented juvenile. With aspirations set high, Murray aims to capitalize on Arizona Blaze’s abilities and aims for continued success on better ground as the season progresses.
