Zipping Classic Field

The Zipping Classic field usually contains some very good quality horses. Due to the Weight For Age conditions of the race, it’s possible to get some quiet young horses lining up against some with years of experience in the Zipping Classic field. In years past, the Zipping Classic field has included horses such as Americain, Sertorius and Sky Heights, all of whom are very successful.

2017 Zipping Classic Field

The 2017 Zipping Classic field follows in the footsteps of previous years. The entire Zipping Classic field is very talented, with each horse having proved itself in some way or another. With so many high quality horses in the 2015 Zipping Classic field, it’s going to be difficult to pick the winner.
