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 'purple, white stars and cap' of Denise Martin's Star Thoroughbreds have become part and parcel of the racing scene in Sydney. John Berry takes a look at the record of one of Australia's most successful syndicators.
It looked at one stage that it would be close to a Star quinella on Saturday at Newcastle when 3 year olds CATEGORIC and VERVE started to wind up on straightening in the 1,400 metres maiden. In the end it was the Zoustar gelding CATEGORIC who raced away to win by just under 2 lengths in an eye catching performance and a nicely judged ride by Kathy O'Hara.
A heavy track at Warwick Farm on a day when Sydney received a huge amount of rain in 12 hours, did not deter James McDonald who had a great day at the races with 3 winners for Chris' stable on a seven race program including a top class ride to win on our 4 year old I Am Invincible mare BELLA SUCCESS, first up over 1,200 metres.
