Impressive South African Winner for Star Witness
Star Witness had an impressive two year-old winner in South Africa on Tuesday when Lord Balmoral strolled in for a four length maiden win at Kenilworth at his second start.
Having made a promising debut on May 16 at the same venue when second, Lord Balmoral started favourite and was never in any serious danger when taking control of the speed soon after jumping to lead all the way in a promising effort.
Offered by Yarraman Park at the 2015 Inglis Classic Summer Book, Lord Balmoral was knocked down to Balmoral Stud / Heritage Bloodstock for $53,000.
He becomes the fourth winner from four to race for Balmoral Belle, a half-sister by Zabeel to former smart stakes-winning stayer Scouting Wide and hails from a family not lacking in quality middle distance performers.
Star Witness currently leads the Second Season Sires list by winners and is standing the 2016 season at a fee of $16,500.
