From First Crop of Pacific Classic Winner Collected

Collected Colt

    • Three-Quarter Sibling to WPT’s Ever-Dependable Voodoo Zip

    • Big Brother Just Ran a 92 Beyer at Belmont Park for Christophe Clement

    • From First Crop of Pacific Classic Winner Who Upset Arrogate, Accelerate

Less than 48 hours after Voodoo Zip delivered a breakthrough win at Belmont Park, West Point Thoroughbreds was able to snatch up his three-quarter brother at Tuesday’s Fasig-Tipton July yearling sale in Kentucky.

The bay colt is from the first crop of Collected. Like Voodoo Zip, Collected is a son of City Zip. Since the new colt is by a son of City Zip and out of the same dam as Voodoo Zip, they are considered three-quarter brothers.

Collected covered more than 150 mares each of the last two years and is poised with a good chance to fill in some of the void left when City Zip died at age 19 in 2017 as a perennial top 10 sire. Collected may have been the best son of City Zip on the racetrack, winning seven stakes and earning $2.9-million.

Collected could carry his speed a long way and in top company, and the best example came in the 2017 Pacific Classic Stakes (G1) at Del Mar when he toppled Breeders’ Cup Classic winners Arrogate and Accelerate. Collected also won that year’s Grade 3 Precisionist Stakes at Santa Anita by a whopping 14 lengths and finished second to California Chrome in the Classic.

Voodoo Zip has been a hard-luck horse in some respects, as he has been beaten by a nose once, by a head once, and by a neck twice. He has never run a bad race, finishing first, second, or third in all 10 of his races, and he has been putting it all together lately with an easy win at Gulfstream Park in April and a measured, “as he pleased” victory on Sunday at Belmont that earned a 92 Beyer speed figure, a new best by 8 points.

David Ingordo was the bloodstock agent when West Point found Voodoo Zip at the OBS April sale and he was impressed when scouting out the younger sibling at Fasig-Tipton. “He is a very nice individual,” David said of the newcomer, whose female family also includes Grade 2 winner and sire Central Banker and Grade 2 winner Gentry.

Christophe Clement admires Voodoo Zip’s consistency and desire and will train the younger brother. The new colt will be shipped directly to Eddie Woods in Ocala, where Voodoo Zip prepared for his 2-year-old season.

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2023.

Trainer: Christophe Clement

  • A leading US trainer for over 25 years, Christophe has acquired a reputation for meticulous attention to detail. He intentionally limits the size of his stable to a number that can be kept in just two locations at any point in time.
  • Top runners include Champion 2-time Eclipse Award winner, Gio Ponti, 4-time G1 winner, Tonalist, Gufo, and WPT grade one horses Decorated Invader and Best Performance.
  • Christophe Clement has been nominated for the U.S. Hall of Fame, and hopefully before long should take his place there, for he is a credit to the sport, a man of unquestionable integrity for whom his honesty and proficiency, and skill as a trainer are a matter of personal pride.

He’s a very nice individual with a deep New York pedigree. We know the cross can produce a stone-cold runner.
