Darby Celebrate Win for Star Filly
Darby Racing have high hopes for Golden Slipper glory with their star two year-old She Will Reign, but also have cause for optimism about their Star Witness filly Star Sensation who saluted at Hawkesbury on Tuesday for the Mark Newnham stable.
Beaten a short head on debut at Kembla last month, Star Sensation was quick to atone for that narrow loss, surging home to win the 1000 metre juvenile maiden by a length.
She holds an entry for the Group II ATC Percy Sykes Stakes at The Championships in April.
A $20,000 Inglis Scone Yearling purchase for Darby Bloodstock from the Widden Stud draft, Star Sensation is the first winner for Stimulass, an unraced Dash for Cash daughter of stakes-winner Giftenary.
Star Sensation continues the winning roll for Star Witness, who has had 16 winners this month including one each in Hong Kong and Singapore as well as stakes-winners Fuhryk and Global Glamour.
Star Witness has 10 entries for the Inglis Premier Yearling starting this Sunday, click here to see them.
