NOIRE wins the Group 2 Shannon Stakes at Rosehill Gardens 2018-09-24
In what looked to be a race run in almost a repeat fashion to the Sheraco Stakes at the same track a fortnight ago, Star's classy 5 year old mare NOIRE scored her maiden Stakes win on Saturday when coming from last at the point of the home turn in the Group 2 Shannon Stakes, to overpower the other runners and win in very slashing style.

VOILA leads all the way at Warwick Farm 2018-09-20
STRONG>VOILA was a 2017 Inglis Easter Star Thoroughbred's yearling purchase from the draft of Riversdale Farm. She is beautifully bred; by the world renowned Choisir and out of the Stakes performed Zabeel mare Milzeel (NZ), a daughter of Champion Older Mare In Australia and New Zealand Miltak. The filly most certainly has the looks to match her star studded pedigree page.

Star's Saturday To Remember 2018-09-10
Saturday was a memorable day's racing for many of our Star owners with the purple and white stars figuring prominently all through the afternoon.

Back to back wins for CORMAC  2018-09-06
A fortnight ago CORMAC recorded a strong win at Warwick Farm over 2,200 metres in such a manner that indicated the four year old gelding might very well develop into a more than "handy" stayer. He confirmed that thought yesterday when again pairing up with Kerrin McEvoy to win at the Kensington meeting at Randwick; this time over 2,400 metres.

APERITIF wins first up this preparation at Canterbury Park 2018-08-30
APERITIF started her spring preparation off on a winning note with victory over 1,100 metres at Canterbury Park yesterday. The filly jumped sharply from her good barrier so jockey Jay Ford allowed APERITIF to go forward as she was racing keenly for the first part of the race.

CORMAC and Kerrin McEvoy relish 2,200 metres at Warwick Farm 2018-08-23
Four year old gelding CORMAC won well yesterday over 2,200 metres at Warwick Farm with Kerrin McEvoy aboard. The pair had already been placed over the trip this preparation at "the farm" so it was pleasing for all involved to cheer them home first past the post this time.

FIESTA wins the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes 2018-08-20
Winner of the Group 3 Widden Stakes as a 2 year old in the autumn, FIESTA returned to racing at Royal Randwick on Saturday with a brilliant win in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes over 1,200 metres.

A Strike Rate To Dream About 2018-08-02
We knew that it had been a successful racing year just past for Star however when we received advice that Ray and Helen Aurisch were co-recipients of the award for the "Highest Strike Rate Owner at ATC Courses in 2017 / 2018" then we realised it had in fact been a tremendous year. With 165 city runners throughout the year Ray and Helen won 39 metropolitan races at a strike rate of 23.63%. This is a fantastic result by any measure. Amongst their winners this year was the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas winner D'Argento.

TRAFALGAR rewards his patient owners with a very good win 2018-07-26
It was another impressive riding display by young New Zealand apprentice Sam Weatherley on Wednesday at Canterbury Park, when winning over 1,900 metres on 5 year old TRAFALGAR. The gelding returned to racing recently following a long time away from the track and it was an excellent training performance by Chris Waller and his team to have the gelding back in the winner's circle third up over a distance preferred by TRAFALGAR.

Our Group 1 winning mare FOXPLAY  2018-07-13
Quality 4 year old Group 1 winning mare Foxplay has been sold by her original ownership group to the international racing and breeding operation, Yulong Investments.

INHERIT wins on debut at Newcastle 2018-07-09
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.

ASTERIUS wins in eye catching style at Rosehill Gardens 2018-07-02
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".

A Star Double on Saturday  2018-06-18
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!

That was a good weekend! 2018-06-13
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.

The Month of May... 2018-06-04
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!

SEAWAY (NZ) returns to the winner's circle  2018-05-03
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.

LILAKAI secures her first win at her second race start 2018-05-03
The blinkers might well have done the job! When Chris elected to send our 3 year old filly LILAKAI to his Gold Coast stable some weeks ago, he felt the local competition would be very beneficial to the filly to enable her to gain not only valuable race experience, but hopefully it would also give her the chance to notch up a win (or maybe even a few) in the area.

TWILIGHTER (NZ) relishes the step up in distance and wins 2018-04-24
Being by dual hemisphere Group 1 winner Reliable Man (GB), 3 year old filly TWILIGHTER (NZ) has inherited not only her dad's striking grey colouring, but also his staying power when she broke through for her first win on Saturday over 2,000 metres. The filly lined up at Kembla Grange with Mitchell Bell aboard and the pair settled towards the rear of the field during the early stages of the race.

REVOLVER wins in determined fashion at Newcastle 2018-04-16
History was made at Royal Randwick on Saturday as WINX recorded her 25th straight win and our trainer Chris Waller along with his dedicated team recorded a brilliant treble of Group 1 wins on the day. Chris and his team also had their hard work rewarded at Newcastle when our 4 year old gelding REVOLVER returned to the winner's circle second up this preparation following an extended period on the sidelines.

VELADERO resumes with an excellent win at Warwick Farm  2018-04-12
It's been a busy week for the thoroughbred industry in NSW with the ATC autumn racing carnival in full swing and the Inglis Easter yearling sale underway at the same time. Racing at Warwick Farm was conducted this week on Wednesday midway through the sale. Courtesy of a brilliant ride by Hugh Bowman and masterful placement by Chris and his team, our 4 year old gelding VELADERO resumed with a terrific win over 1,400 metres.
