Over the years I have purchased some outstanding horses privately to syndicate. Included are the high-class gallopers Holding, Unchain My Heart, Too Many Reds, Believe ‘n Achieve, Pitt Street and more recently our talented gallopers Invincible Al, Invincible Amici, Kissing Game and Isthmian.

In all cases this strategy has allowed us to keep the entry price down for clients wanting to get involved in racing. The horses listed above have given their owners terrific satisfaction and enjoyment.

This Star Witness filly which was reared at Yarraman Park represents great value. Let’s look at why I purchased her.

The filly

I was taken by this filly’s physical presence when I inspected a group of yearling fillies at Yarraman Park earlier this year. She is a strong well-balanced athlete with good bone. She is an attractive filly with good conformation and no issues on x-ray. She becomes our first yearling purchase for the new season.

I’m really pleased to have secured her and to offer such a nice filly to the market. I have high expectations for her.

Star Witness

Star Witness was also a good chance to be a success at stud. He has a good pedigree and is out of a very fast mare who is sister to the outstanding mare Chinchilla Rose. He comes from a family that produced the handy sprinter Ferocity, a reasonable sire himself. Star Witness was a very good juvenile and trained on. He won twice at the top level and competed with distinction in England.

More to the point he was selected to stand at the famous Widden Stud. Like all studs Widden don’t always get it right but they do more often than not when selecting sires to stand at the famous nursery. Widden’s current stallion roster with runners are Sebring, Nicconi, Star Witness, Your Song and Zoustar.

Sebring is number two on the current season’s Australian Winners List, Nicconi comes in at seven. Star Witness is the leading fourth season sire in Australia after securing the top spot on the third season list in 2016/17 Season.

Young Song is 2nd on the Second Season Winner’s List and Zoustar is 3rd on the First Season Sires List.

About 700 sires are represented on these Lists so the statistics are very impressive.

Tara Madgwick summed it up very well:

“Widden’s Star Witness appears a sure thing to continue his rise up the Australian Stallion ranks judging on his ability to sire arguably Australia’s best two 3YO’s of either sex. From just three crops he has sired high class sprinter milers that perform from Two to Three. With over 360 mares covered in the last two seasons don’t expect this guy to slow down anytime soon.” Tara Madgwick, Breednet


Involve is by Champion Broodmare Sire Encosta de Lago. He has won the Broodmare sire’s title in the past two seasons and is currently placed in 2nd spot behind Zabeel.

Involve has done a good job at stud with four winners from just five to race. This is her sixth foal. She has been proven to produce nice class horses with all four of her winners being metropolitan class horses including this filly’s full brother Arrestar who won recently in Brisbane.

Involve is out of the Lunchtime mare Glorified who produced 9 winners including the very good gallopers British Lion and British General from 11 to race.
