Zoustar Flyer Wins $100,000 Summer Scorcher
Brilliant Zoustar sprinter Indian Pacific was fresh off a break in the $100,000 Listed WATC Summer Scorcher (1000m) at Ascot on Saturday and hit top form with a bold front running win.
The Neville Parnham trained gelding has had a month between runs after finishing ninth in the Group I WATC Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) and led all the way to score by three-quarters of a length as a hot favourite.
“He’s a pretty promising horse and I knew he’d keep running today,” said Neville Parnham.
“He’s a free running horse and hopefully he can keep winning.”
A $110,000 Inglis Premier purchase for Parnham Racing from the Bowness Stud draft, Indian Pacific has the overall record of seven wins and three placings from 11 starts with prizemoney topping $300,000.
Bred by Bowness Stud, Indian Pacific has now won two stakes races and is the best of six winners from stakes-winner Rosarino, a half-sister by Perugino (USA) to stakes-winner Rosa’s Spur, the grand-dam of Group II winner Pure Elation.
Indian Pacific is one of five stakes-winners this season for Zoustar, who has 60 entries for Magic Millions.
