Brilliant Win for Zoustar Sister
A full sister to our dual Group I winning young sire Zoustar, exciting filly Ciarlet was in a class of her own at Gosford on Thursday.
Prepared by Chris Waller, three year-old daughter of Northern Meteor left her rivals in the cold when bolting away to win the 1100 metre maiden by more than seven lengths as a short priced favourite.
Not beaten far finishing third and fifth at her first two starts in December, Ciarlet has obviously come back a much stronger filly and will be worth following into better company.
A $375,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Attunga Stud for David Redvers/ Chris Waller, she is owned by a syndicate headed by Qatar Bloodstock in whose colours she runs.
Ciarlet is the second winner for Redoute’s Choice mare Zouzou and is a full sister to $1.4 million earner Zoustar, winner of the Group I ATC Golden Rose and VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Zoustar returns to Widden Stud this spring after spending last season at Woodside Park in Victoria.
