“Training for Star Thoroughbreds is a delightful experience. From entry point through to a young horse’s race career right up until his or her retirement, the Star team have a very well thought out system to look after their clients’ investment and the horse equally. Denise and her team ensure that racing with Star is absolutely a 5 star experience.”
– Chris Waller
During his racing career Zoustar won the Group 2 Sires' Produce Stakes as a two-year-old and as a three-year-old he is the only horse to the Group 1 Golden Rose / Coolmore Stakes double. His trainer Chris Waller described him as "an equine machine". As a stallion he is reigning champion 1st and 2nd season sire and reigning champion Australian sire of 3YO’s. In his first crop he produced multiple Group one winning sprinter Sunlight who lead home a Zoustar trifecta in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington.
Her dam Mariquita won 4 times between 1200m and 1500m. This her first foal. She hails from the family of Morshdi, Champion 3yo in Germany and Italy.
The literal meaning of “Attunga” is “higher place”, which also fits well when one considers the ultimate aim of this property. The natural landscape of gently rolling hills and undulations provides itself to producing sound animals for thoroughbred racing. In addition to specifically designed nutrition programs, expertly maintained improved pastures combined with natural grasses provide the necessary balance required for raising young thoroughbreds.
