Loup de Vega fired in a notable group 1 double over the weekend as Zabeel Prince ran a powerful race to take the Prix d’Ispahan (Grade 1) at Paris Longchamp just over 24 hours after Phoenix of Spain had given the sire a first classic success in the Tattersalls Irish Two Thousand Guineas (Grade 1).

The Ballylinch Stud sire has now supplied nine top-level winners, with Zabeel Prince and Phoenix of Spain joining the likes of champion juvenile Belardo, runaway Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T) winner Newspaperofrecord, and the Southern Hemisphere stars Santa Ana Lane and Vega Magic.
