Established by Denise Martin in 1994, premier Australasian syndication company Star Thoroughbreds offers high quality horses sought from the leading yearling sales, to race in share partnerships. Over 20 years of racetrack success has been the hallmark to the longevity of the now famous Star Thoroughbreds purple and white stars racing colours.
"Denise is unbelievable, she has been the most supportive person you could imagine. She has a great business and she has brought a lot of people to us. She just looks after them like you wouldn't believe." Chris Waller, Royal Randwick, April 2017.
The patient owners of 3 year old gelding BURBANK needed to wait until the last race on the Kembla Grange program on Saturday over 1,400 metres to get the result they wanted. After jumping sharply from the barrier, BURBANK took up a forward position to settle fourth on the rail until the corner of the home turn, when an opening appeared immediately outside the leader.
It's said in racing circles that we should all enjoy the good days and success, because the less than great days require any amount of "character building" to get through. Yesterday at Warwick Farm was a terrific day for some of our Star owners with the 2 horses racing that afternoon, both winning.
Our quality in form mare INVINCIBELLA returned to the winner's circle in the 1,400 metres Group 2 Blazer Stakes at Flemington on Saturday after being desperately unlucky at her previous start in the Group 2 Golden Pendant in Sydney. After beginning well INVINCIBELLA quickly got into a lovely rhythm with Hugh Bowman allowing the mare to travel very comfortably several horses off the rail just worse than midfield.
Although it was a dramatic finish to the ATC Group 1 Flight Stakes at Royal Randwick on Saturday, our high quality filly FIESTA fought right to the line to run 2nd beaten a nose and in doing so, secured the title of the Darley Stallions 2018 Princess Series winner. It was the third time our Star Thoroughbreds' fillies have won this prestigious award with Danglissa and very recently our top class filly Foxplay also securing the title. FIESTA will now contest the Group 1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield on 13th October.
