FLR are wrapped to have purchased our second colt in consecutive years at this sale by Star Witness with Champion trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott – trainers of Star Witness’s dual Group 1 winner Global Glamour!

A Champion 2yo & 3yo colt on the track winning the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes before taking on the world at Royal Ascot, Star Witness is delivering in spades at stud! He was Australia’s Leading Second Season Sire of Winners last season and is currently sitting third in the Leading Sire of 3yo’s in Australia behind only Snitzel and I Am Invincible.

The sire of Gai & Adrian’s superstar mare Global Glamour, a dual Group 1 and multiple Stakes winner of over $1.1million in prize money, Star Witness also lays claim to brilliant 3yo colt and stallion prospect, the Group 2 winner Star Turn, along with further Stakes winners Fuhryk, Mella Maria, Lord Balmoral, The Barrister – High Volatility, Well Sprung, Pearl Star plus further Stakes performers Kimberley Star (also trained by Gai & Adrian), Magic Alibi, Serenade, Stellar Collisions, Lineker, Typhoon Witness and Eden Roc.

This colt is all power and he descends from a quality speed family. His dam King’s Concubine is doing the job at stud having produced 2 winners and this colt is by far by the best stallion she has been to yet. Furthermore, King’s Concubine is the half-sister to outstanding dual Group 1 winner Response who is the dam of Stakes performed 2yo Alter Call with further stakes winners / performers Returntosender and Pit Lane down the page.

“I have a lot of respect for Star Witness” said Gai’s co-trainer Adrian Bott.

“We obviously train Global Glamour who is an absolute star – she won two group 1’s within 7 days. He throws tough, athletic types and this colt is no different. He’s a lovely individual, very strong and very athletic. He’s carries himself so well and is so light on his feet. He’s a powerful type and like his family suggests, he should hopefully be up and running early while he’ll only get better into his 3yo year.”

“This colt is the first colt we’ve purchased this year with Gai and Adrian and he is all quality” said FLR’s Ashleigh Dowley. "He was bred and raised at Rosemont Stud who we have a great relationship with and they have had terrific success with their yearling’s. He’s very imposing this colt. He’s got great strength and moves very effortlessly. A great attitude too which is so important and will take him a long way.”

“We’re really excited to have another yearling by Star Witness in the stable. He’s had a phenomenal year and we’ve hopefully got a nice, early running prospect here in this colt who comes from the same sale that produced She Will Reign and Extreme Choice!"

“There is a great page behind him two. There is good 2yo speed and Star Witness has put plenty of quality into this colt. He’s a big up-grader for the mare who’s already produced 2 winners so he’ll no doubt get every chance with Racing’s First Lady and Adrian Bott who know the breed so well”.

A quality individual who represents great value with a Champion training combination in Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.
