A quality filly by champion sire Zoustar was the highlight horse on the last day of the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale selling for $450,000 to TFI.

Consigned by Baramul Stud, the filly from Palazzo Cristallo was initially passed in through the ring and then later sold.

“I’m really excited,” TFI’s Racing and Breeding Manager Sally Williams said.

“She’s a beautiful filly.

“She’s an athletic filly with loads of quality. She has an air of elegance about her and she looks really fast.

“You will have noticed that we have bought a few lovely fillies this year. The Fung family have been really enjoying racing fillies.

“We thought we would buy a few more (fillies) this year – they hold their value and we can always go on and breed with them after (racing).

“We love Zoustar fillies. She completes the yearling portfolio for the year – they’re all breaking in really nice and we are excited about the year ahead.”

The star filly is a half-sister to recent winners Selhurst Park and Pyromania from a More Than Ready (USA) daughter of Group II winner Palacio de Cristal.
