A Champion 2YO AND 3YO Colt of his generation, STAR WITNESS won his first three starts as a 2YO including the G1 Blue Diamond. Victorious in the G1 Coolmore S. as a 3YO, STAR WITNESS was retired to the famed Widden Stud as a 3YO with a record of 4 wins and
a further five placings at Stakes level.

STAR WITNESS has proven himself a versatile sire with winners from 1100m to 2400m. The sire of star race mare GLOBAL GLAMOUR (ATC Flight S. [G1]; MRC 1000 Guineas [G1]) as well as Group winners GRAFF (ATC San Domenico S. [G3]), FUHRYK and CROWN WITNESS, he is now also the sire of Freshman sire STAR TURN (MRC Schillaci S.[G2]; S Domenico [G3]).

GABRIELLA, the unraced dam of this filly is a half sister to multiple Group 1 winning CAPE OF GOOD HOPE as well as Group 3 winner NEPHRITE. GABRIELLA has a perfect record at stud with 7 winners from as many to race including dual South African G3 winner TABLE BAY who won 3 races as a juvenile.

Possessing an all-important relaxed nature, this filly looks strong through the hindquarter and has a lovely, loose walk. She boasts a good, running pedigree with a lot of 2YO form. She certainly looks a racehorse and may go early. One of our top picks at the sale, this stunning Chestnut filly ticks all the boxes for us.
