A five time Group 1 winner across 4 countries and dual Group 1 winner in both hemispheres, STARCRAFT is an impressive chestnut stallion who secured his place in history when he won the time-honoured Group 1 Australian Derby, beating the likes of ELVSTROEM, DELZAO and NIELLO. Crowned Australia and New Zealand’s Champion 3YO of 2003, STARCRAFT was a versatile racehorse, winning from 1400m to 2400m who has stamped his progeny and continues to produce consistent winners.

STARCRAFT is now the Sire of 334 Winners including 20 Stakes winners. His most prominent son is the brilliant Blue Diamond Stakes Winner and now successful sire STAR WITNESS. Also proven to be a versatile stallion, siring winners from 1100m to 2400m, STAR WITNESS’ most decorated daughter is GLOBAL GLAMOUR (ATC Flight S. [G1]; MRC 1000 Guineas [G1]).

However, whilst focus often rests on STARCRAFT’s sons, six of the best of his Stakes winners are fillies including his brilliant dual Group 1 winner WE CAN SAY IT NOW.

SPRING SPIRIT, the dam of this filly, was a Group winner (La Plata Clasico Arturo A Bullrich [G3]) in Argentina, and winner of a total of 8 races. At stud she has produced stakes-placed Trophies (Newcastle JC Spring S. [G3]) and a city winner in Earnest Desire amongst her four winners.

Winning second dam Springly has also produced four winners including G3 winner SPRANG whilst third dam Spring Light is the dam of 3 Group 1 winners including Champion 2YO & 3YO Filly in Argentina SOUTHERN SPRING amongst her 9 winners at stud.

This filly was purchased at the 2020 Adelaide Magic Millions, has been broken in and is now in pre-training. This filly will be trained by the very well-known and respected Robbie Griffiths along with his new Training partner Matthew de Kock at Cranbourne. Robbie and Mat have the score on the board as individual trainers but they have now joined forces and will make a formidable training partnership.

Ingoing fee per 5% share only $750
(includes breaking and pre-training to 31st November).
Trained by GRIFFITHS DE KOCK RACING at Cranbourne
