Zoustar 2YO Wins VOBIS Gold Rush
The famed colours of Hong Kong based Everest winning owner Bon Ho were carried to victory in the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Rush (1000m) at Bendigo on Saturday by exciting Zoustar colt Starry Legend .
Trained by John Sadler, Starry Legend was brilliant winning easily on debut at Sandown late last month and proved the potential of that outing when trouncing this field to win with authority.
He led all the way for Michael Dee to win by a length and a quarter and has now banked over $210,000 from his first two starts.
“He’s a very smart horse with plenty of upside,” said Dee.
“He learned a lot from his first start, but he just wanted to overdo it a bit today in the first half of the race. He just needs to learn to relax a bit more, but he’s a horse on the up.”
A $500,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Segenhoe draft for his trainer, Starry Legend was bred by Phil Wilton and is a little light on pedigree being the third winner, but first metro winner from five to race from Darley bred Savsenga.
She was a minor winner by Reset, whose grand-dam Intrepidity was a triple Group I winner rated the Champion European 3YO Filly of 1993.
