A beautifully balanced colt from a fast family. His strong physique matches his speedy pedigree, indicating he will be a sharp, early type.

“A top class first foal out of a dual winning daughter of leading sire Star Witness. This colt ticked all the boxes for size, strength, bone, soundness, athleticism, movement and temperament.

He is the best yearling we have seen by first crop sire and Champion European 2-year-old and 3-year-old Churchill, a son of the all conquering Galileo. Teofilo, also by Galileo and like Churchill, a winner of the Group One Dewhurst Stakes as a 2-year-old, has been a phenomenal sire of colts and gelding in these parts – Group One winners Happy Clapper ($7.3 million), Twilight Payment ($5.4 million), Humidor ($4.2 million), Kermadec ($2.9 million) and Palentino ($1.3 million).

This colt’s dam is a half sister to the very talented Hong Kong performer Flagship Shine (by Tale of the Cat) which won 6 of his first 9 starts in HK, and over $800,000 prize money and achieved a peak Timeform Rating of 116 (equivalent to an Australian Group One win/placing).”

Denise and her team ensure that racing with Star is absolutely a 5 star experience.”
