$1million Zoustar Colt at Inglis Easter
Leading young sire Zoustar made his presence felt during the first session of the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale with his colt from Madamesta fetching $1million for Milburn Creek when snapped up by Orbis Bloodstock.
A half-brother to stakes-winner Bullpit and two other winners, he was the most expensive yearling by Zoustar offered on day one and will be trained by Team Hawkes.
“He was a lovely colt – we really liked him and Wayne [Hawkes] loved him too,” Paul King of Orbis Bloodstock told ANZ News.
“He is an athlete – a really lovely colt with a great attitude and really nicely conformed. The sire is flying at the moment – we bought one at the Melbourne Sale and went to half a million for him. He throws really good types who are very athletic and they are just top horses.”.
The colt was a super successful pinhook having been bought for $200,000 by Suman Hedge Bloodstock from the Widden draft at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
