Victorian Alliance Secure $1.3million for Zoustar Colt
Victorian Stallion Alliance have already had success with their $1million Zoustar colt from last year’s Magic Millions in Brereton and they went back to the source to secure another son of Widden Stud’s champion sire on Wednesday paying $1.3million for the colt from Pirapala.
Bred by China Horse Club and consigned on their behalf by Sledmere Stud, the star colt was purchased by Rosemont-Victorian Alliance/Suman Hedge Bloodstock (FBAA)/David Redvers Bloodstock and will be trained by Peter Moody, who also puts the polish on Brereton.
“He’s a ripping colt,” Anthony Mithen reported. “He was really, really high on our short list.”
“We’ve had some success with Zoustar already with the Victorian Alliance. He’s a horse who can get a precocious two-year-old .”
He is the second foal of Pirapala, whose first foal, a colt by Russian Revolution made $160,000 at this sale last year when bought by Hawkes Racing and has been named Firebird Two.
Pirapala is a winning half-sister by Sepoy to Group I winner Instant Celebrity and this family has already had stakes success with Zoustar to produce Hong Kong Group III winner Healthy Happy.
