Zarathustra
1951 - 1967

Michael Hurley The Curragh Ireland.
 
The horseman who worked with Zarathustra every day was bloodhorse literate achiever Eugene Clarke, both in Ireland and in Britain. But not in Japan.

Unusually for a future champion stayer, Zarathustra demonstrated precocious speed, winning three times as a two-year-old over the minimum distance of five furlongs. The most important of these was the Blake Plate at Phoenix Park. In 1954 he was one of the best horses in Ireland, winning the Irish Derby and the Irish St. Leger as well as the Desmond Plate at the Curragh. Following his win in the Irish Derby, Gray reportedly turned down an offer of £20,000 for the horse.[1] As a four-year-old Zarathustra won the Royal Whip Stakes.

Zarathustra (1951–1967) was an Irish-bred thoroughbred racehorse and sire. He won races over distances ranging from five furlongs to two and a half miles, but was especially effective over extended distances.

Sir Harold William Stannus Gray, KBE (16 August 1867 – 23 May 1951) was an Anglo-Irish landowner, horse breeder and politician. He served a brief period as a Member of Parliament during which he pressed for more help for agriculture. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Stannus_Gray 

Timeform Publications is a publishing company in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England founded in 1948 to provide information to fans, bettors, and others involved in the horse racing industry. The company was purchased by the sports betting exchange Betfair in December 2006.

Zarathustra returned to Ireland to stand as a stallion. The best of his offspring was Crozier, a stayer like his sire who won the Doncaster Cup. He was exported to Japan in 1964 and died there in 1967.

The Doncaster Cup is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run at Doncaster over a distance of 2 miles and 2 furlongs (3,621 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

After one unsuccessful run in early 1956 he was transferred to England where he was trained at Newmarket, Suffolk by Cecil Boyd-Rochfort. By the end of the season he had won four races in Britain including the Ascot Stakes (by five lengths)[2] and the Goodwood Cup. In 1957 Zarathustra sustained a fracture to his cannon bone which threatened his racing career.[1] After spending two months recuperating in his stable he returned to the racecourse to run in the Ascot Gold Cup. The stable jockey, Harry Carr preferred to ride the Queen's runner Atlas, leaving Zarathustra to be ridden by Lester Piggott.[3] After racing just behind the leaders, Zarathustra took the lead early in the straight and won the race by one and a half lengths from the St Leger winner Cambremer.[4]
 
Zarathustra was given a best end of year Timeform rating of 131 in 1956, when he was the third highest rated horse trained in Britain.[5]Zarathustra returned to Ireland to stand as a stallion. The best of his offspring was Crozier, a stayer like his sire who won the Doncaster Cup. He was exported to Japan in 1964 and died there in 1967.

JMC: You didn't act the fool around Zarathustra either, make no mistake about that.
