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.
INHERIT caught many by surprise when winning on debut last Saturday at Newcastle over 1,200 metres with Lee Magorrian in the saddle. The son of Pierro had shown in his trials that he was most likely looking to be a "distance" horse with his racing style more akin to staying races.
We remember the Saturday night session of the 2016 Magic Millions sale very well; the lovely grey Sebring colt was a real eye catcher, but most likely out of our price range. Yearling selector and sale advisor Steve Brem was also a fan of the colt as we had inspected him before he went through the ring 3 or 4 times. By Saturday afternoon we had decided that we definitely wanted the colt even if it meant going way "out of our comfort zone".
Our purple and white stars have been enjoying a great run of success lately and we were delighted to record another two winners on Saturday, on the same day that our champion trainer Chris Waller equalled his record number of metropolitan winners in a season. Chris has now trained 169 Sydney metro winners season to date with 6 weeks still to go until the end of the season...an amazing accomplishment!
