Bon Ho Buys $900,000 Zoustar Colt
Hong Kong based Everest winning owner Bon Ho was one of the biggest buyers at Inglis Easter last year and stepped back into the fray at Riverside Stables on Tuesday to purchase a stunning Zoustar colt from Swiss Rose for $900,000.
Consigned by Segenhoe, the striking chestnut is a half-brother to Group III winner Bella Rosa from stakes-winner Swiss Rose, a half-sister to Group III winner Prom Queen from the family of Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Catnipped.
Bon Ho has already enjoyed success this season with exciting undefeated Zoustar colt Starry Legend, who recently won the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Rush at Bendigo.
He also purchased Starry Legend from Segenhoe and Peter O’Brien is hoping this colt can deliver similar success.
Zoustar had a strong sale on Day 1 with 11 yearlings averaging $335,909 and his top priced filly was the Widden Stud consigned filly from Bryony that made $600,000 to the bid of Phillip Stokes Racing Pty Ltd / Rick Connolly Bloodstock.
