Via her sire, ARD VDL Douglas, Suma’s Zorro is a granddaughter of legendary progenitor Darco. In the dam line we find thoroughbred and Irish blood. Suma’s Zorro’s dam, Vixens Frolic, is a daughter of the thoroughbred Horos out of a daughter by Pride of Shaunlara. Her daughter Coolmore Frolic produced the international eventer Up Up And Away.
