100th Winner for Zoustar
Widden Stud’s champion sire Zoustar clocked up his 100th Australian winner of the season on Wednesday and has a small selection of quality yearlings to be offered at Inglis Classic.
Four year-old gelding Nashira posted his second win from nine starts when saluting at Eagle Farm for the O’Dea/ Hoysted stable over 1200m.
Zoustar’s 100 winners have earned $8.8million and include five stakes-winners headed by Group I winner Zougotcha, plus Kiku, North Star Lass, Platinum Jubilee and The Astrologist.
Zoustar has eight yearlings for Inglis Classic that include a filly offered by Widden Stud that comes from the family of his champion filly Sunlight.
Lot 91 is the first foal of speedy metro winner Soul Star, whose stakes-placed dam Brave Soul is a half-sister to Group III winning blue hen Solar Charged, the dam of $6.5million earning triple Group I winner Sunlight and Group III winner Sisstar.
The last two yearlings from Solar Charged, a colt and filly by Zoustar have sold for $3million last year and $2.6million this year so this filly has a pedigree with the potential of a lot more to come.
