The business is about stallion & my god, Tarzino (NZ) is something else.

His breeding – Tavistock from Zarzino (by Zabeel) had prior attracted much publicity where Zarzino either grossly overlooked or ‘under-valued’, NZB sold for $NZ1500 as paddock ‘pet’.

We remembered Zarzino at auction and dear god, those blood lines to be relished.

Fate meets destiny. Tarzino, from the tap-root family ff 3-e, this people is the famed Cinna line.

Cinna, La Fleche



What had made this line go oomph………….where Blandford (3-o) – Blandford’s siring line descends from La Fleche (GB) 3-e, the grand-dam of Cinna.


La Fleche

3-e, ELITE famous strain –

Where readers have read any prior article pages Tables of Destiny: What’s my Line? you shall learn the deep significance of what family attributed numbers do, what strains work!

Firstly, we’ll get familiarised with other Cinna ‘rich’ breeding.

*History Time – at the back of The Register of Thoroughbred Stallions of New Zealand 2016, has the champion sire of the past: Balloch (GB) 1939 by Obliterate (GB) from Cinna (GB). Balloch – champion sire in 1951-1952, 1952-1953 and champion broodmare sire in 1961-1962, 1963-64, 1964-65, 196-67, 1967-68.  Balloch was Cinna’s last foal. She, by Polymelus was a dam of 16 foal, 13 raced and 9 where winners.

Powerful maternal family strain has, as blue-hen elite, Cinna, as was Balloch, as was Umidwar, Udaipur, the Vice Regal lines are foundation 3-e

Vice Regal, carries a double cross to Cinna

Vice Regal (NZ) by Bismark (GB) from Kind Regards (NZ) – has a double x to Cinna

Yet more in-breeding to Cinna @ 3-e strains on maternal…. Triton (Pakistan II – Haunui, by Davey Jones)


Triton (NZ) by Pakistan II from Hauani

Triton – top NZ  miler on both sides of the Tasman.


the genetic Empress, Cinna

People…all old-school, bloodstock literature clearly document the might of Cinna!

Bred back to Cinna and there’s a top chance that the resultant foal…….has an excellent chance to upgrade any breed, especially those which have been in the doldrums in recent times. Jack Glengarry’s Racing Miscellany

we are Back to the Future…. with Tarzino (NZ)

Do ya’ pedigree homework…  @ furthest remove which infuse from maternal tap-root ‘doubled’ Cinna 3-e.

Question how/why/where Zarzino by Zabeel, had its successful nick with Tavistock, Tarzino’s sire?

Observe the pedigree…the cross of Sadlers Wells/Nureyev are one, and same line, ff 5-h through Special (USA).

You can’t ever escape, purity of foundational lines!

For our New Zealand thoroughbred, Tarzino will provide breeders the golden opportunity to infuse ‘Cinna’.

Undoubtedly, he will be the new and a major breeding influence for New Zealand and Australia.

Tarzino is exceptionally bold and carries the distinguishing Zabeel/Sir Tristram ‘look’.
