Zoustar Mare Wins G3 Bow Mistress for Yulong
Tony and Calvin McEvoy thought outside the square to send talented Zoustar mare Zoushine to Tasmania for her first run back from a spell in the $150,000 Group III Bow Mistress Stakes (1200m) and were well rewarded when she scored a half length win.
Stakes-placed as a two year-old, Zoushine took a while to break her maiden, but has made steady progress since then and looks set for her best ever campaign.
She found the line well for Barend Vorster to post that all important Black Type win taking her overall record to four wins and five placings from 15 starts with prizemoney topping $316,000.
A $380,000 Inglis Premier purchase for McEvoy Mitchell Racing from the Mill Park, Zoushine runs for a syndicate headed by Yulong in whose colours she runs and includes her breeders Brenton and Liz Parker.
Zoushine is the best of two winners from brilliantly fast metro winning Stratum mare Ravenous Lass, who won five races at 1000m and is a half-sister to Group II winner San Nicasio.
Zoushine is the 26th stakes-winner for Zoustar and has a 3 x 3 double cross of Redoute’s Choice. She is the third stakes-winner for Zoustar bred this way joining Haut Brion Her and Solar Star.
