 In 2017, News

The $160,000 Listed BRC Bill Carter Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on Saturday produced a great result for Trilogy Racing with their exciting Zoustar filly Zia taking the prize .

Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Zia made a winning debut at Canterbury on May 3 and made a smooth transition to stakes company with a tenacious effort for Tim Clark to win by a neck.



“She is the ultimate professional as we saw today and is very tough,” said Adrian Bott.

“From a wide draw today it was a bit concerning, but she’s been able to overcome that with the natural speed that she’s got and Tim Clark was able to get her into a nice position.”

Zia has won over $128,000 from her first two starts and is likely to remain in training for another Black Type run in Queensland.

A $360,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Glenlogan Park draft for Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott/Kestrel Thoroughbreds/Trilogy Racing, Zia was bred by Glenlogan Park and is the best of two winners from Group III placed Soviet Secret, who died in 2021.

She is the 36th stakes-winner for Widden Stud’s champion sire Zoustar.
