Australia’s leading first season sire Zoustar has enjoyed great results at the 2018 NZB National Yearling Sale Book One this week, highlighted by a stunning filly from Snow Blitz selling for $650,000

Lansdowne Park consigned the show-stopping filly from unraced Zabeel mare Snow Blitz, a daughter of Golden Slipper winner Polar Success.

“Peter really liked her and the father was good, it’s another bloodline we wanted to have,” said her purchaser Ger Beemsterboer.

The sale provided Landsdowne Park principal Dave Duley with a stunning surprise.

“It’s a huge result, it’s just unbelievable,” he said. “I certainly never expected that sort of money, it’s life-changing.

“I pinhooked her out of Inglis for A$130,000. I just loved her as a weanling, she was so athletic and she had everything I look for in a horse and she has obviously grown into a beautiful yearling.

“It means a lot to us, building from where we have come from to this point now, selling a yearling for $650,000, it’s just so good. It’s the highlight of my yearling sales career.”

The only other Zoustar yearling sold at this sale was a cracking colt from Crystal Spur that made $460,000 for Curraghmore Stud when secured by Aquis Farm/ Lindsay Park Racing for $460,000.
