Shares now available in this outstanding colt by champion stallion, ZOUSTAR.

Purchased from this years Magic Millions yearling sale, he is out of Stakes winner, She Goes To Rio who has now had three foals to race for 3 winners - and all by average stallions. So Zoustar is certainly a major upgrade for this mare!

2.5% = $4,398 - 5% = $8,795 - 7.5% = $13,193 - 10% = $17,590

The above share prices include GST on purchase, sale expenses, Magic Millions race series & Golden Slipper nominations, breaking in & education, syndicate & registration fees and insurance until January 2022.

ZOUSTAR is one of Australia’s best performing stallions, having sired the likes of Champion 3YO filly Sunlight, Lean Mean Machine, Zousain, Haut Brion Her, Madam Rouge and Ranting. Zoustar’s 2020 service fee reflects his demand by breeders, having been increased to $121,000.

SHE GOES TO RIO was a winner of 4 races, the highlight being the Listed Canberra Guineas. She also placed in the Group 3 Keith Nolan Classic and the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes. Since the catalogue pedigree went to print, she has now produced another winner - PASSISTAS has won two races from her first two starts and is trained by Matthew Smith out of his Warwick Farm stables. 

He will be nominated for the Magic Millions race series and Golden Slipper.

This colt will be trainer by Multiple Group One winning trainer, Gary Portelli. Portelli has trained the likes of Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign, Rebel Dane & Gold Trail as well as Elite Thoroughbreds Stakes winners Testashadow, Sebring Sun, Straturbo & I’m All The Talk.

Dr Brett Warren conducted a physical, full x-ray review and scope pre-purchase. He was deemed as low risk.

Sale Comments: A lovely colt that will just grow into money! Has that lovely ‘swagger’ about him when he walks and just has everything in the right place. The mare was a Stakes winners and has had three to the races, ALL winners. Ticks all of the boxes!

Current Status: Currently spelling at GT Park. Will have a short break before going to the educators.
