 In 2017, News

A competitive juvenile maiden over 1300m at Warwick Farm on Easter Monday produced a new winner for Zousain wit the Ciaron Maher trained filly Froebel Star doing best in a tight finish to snatch a narrow victory.

Froebel Star finished second at in her first start at the Gold Coast chasing home Too Darn Lizzie in the $500,000 Magic Millions Debut and was then sixth in the Listed ATC Lonhro Plate behind Castanya.

Given a little freshen up after that effort in early February, she looked sharp winning a recent trial and ran up to that form to outpoint I Am Invincible colt The Three Hundred to win by a nose with James McDonald in the saddle.



A $320,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Raheen Stud draft for Ciaron Maher Bloodstock/David Redvers Bloodstock, she runs for an all female ownership group and has already banked over $124,000 in prizemoney.

Bred by the Nolan family, Froebel Star is the fourth winner from four foals to race from stakes-placed Germayne Lass, a half-sister by Stomberg Carlson to stakes-winner Throssell.

Froebel Star is the sixth winner – 1 in NZ – for Zousain and they include Group III ATC Magic Night Stakes winner Drifting. The promising young sire son of Zoustar has two entries for Inglis Easter.
