20 for Trapeze Artist
Trapeze Artist posted his 20th winner of the season on Wednesday with Star Thoroughbreds celebrating the first win at Eagle Farm for promising filly Leitzel , who has a full sister headed to Magic Millions 2024.
The Chris Waller trained filly was having her third start and powered home from back in the field to win by more than a length.

A $260,000 Inglis Classic purchase for Star Thoroughbreds / Randwick Bloodstock Agency from the Widden Stud draft, Leitzel is the second Trapeze Artist winner for Star Thoroughbreds this week following on from Concello, who won at Hawkesbury on Sunday.
Leitzel is a half-sister to Group III placed Rewarding Together and is the second winner from metro winning Testa Rossa mare Bella Rossie, a half-sister to the dam of Group winners Shesallshenanigans and Shelby Cobra.
Trapeze Artist added a new stakes horse to his tally on Wednesday when Spywire finished second in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic and he has 21 entries for Magic Millions.
