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.
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!
The Star horses were to the fore in Brisbane and Sydney on Saturday with the beautiful 4 year old mare INVINCIBELLA winning the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes at Doomben, the final race on the program. Not ten minutes later 4 year old Star mare NOIRE won the last race on the card at Royal Randwick in slashing style, carrying 60.5kgs on a very rain affected track. Both mares are now looking to run in the Group 1 Tatts Tiara back at Doomben in a fortnight.
With Emma away for all of May we have been somewhat "slowly away from the barriers" with our reporting on all the monthly activities, not to mention our race wins, throughout this time...so here we go!
Third time to the races this preparation and it was back to the winner's enclosure for talented 3 year old colt SEAWAY (NZ) with a decisive win at Canterbury Park yesterday afternoon in the Benchmark 76 handicap over 1,550 metres. Tye Angland was in the saddle and rode the colt to perfection allowing SEAWAY (NZ) to settle on the rail slightly worse than midfield.
