Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott Racing

Sire On Fire, Zoustar

ZOUSTAR celebrated an impeccable Group 2 winning double, in two states, over the weekend with the lightly raced mare, Haut Brion Her winning the Sheraco Stakes at Rosehill, and Zoutori victorious in the Bobbie Lewis Quality at Flemington. 3yo colt Ranting also heightened the weekend for Zoustar, placing third in the Group 2 Seppelt Danehill Stakes.  

Sired by my Group 1 Coolmore Stakes winner Northern Meteor, ZOUSTAR followed in his father’s footsteps, and is the only horse to win the Group 1 Golden Rose and Group 1 Coolmore Stakes double. Zoustar’s success in the breeding barn has come as no surprise, with the young gun being crowned Champion 1st & 2nd, and now 3rd Season Sire, he is the reigning Champion Australian Sire of 3YOs and his multiple Group 1 winning daughter, SUNLIGHT was sold for a phenomenal $4.2 million at this year’s Magic Millions Broodmare Sale. A record price for any horse sold by Magic Millions at auction.

Standing at Widden Stud for a service fee of $121,000, Zoustar continues to climb the ranks amongst Australia’s most prominent stallions.  

 

 

Adrian and I purchased an exceptional colt by ZOUSTAR at this year’s Magic Millions Yearling Sale. Worth noting, six of my seven Golden Slipper winners were purchased at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale, and the first six horses past the post in this year’s Golden Slipper were too all purchased at Magic Millions. It is truly a phenomenal sale.

The colt is out of the precocious, Stakes winning, 6x Stakes placegetter & Stakes producing Monsun mare, MONBLUE. He looks a real 2yo type and he ticks all the boxes. He has size, substance, strength, and plenty of quality about him. He is a sensible, intelligent individual, nothing seems to faze him and we could not be happier with his physical and mental development. 

Zoustar x Monblue '18 Colt

 

Zoustar x Monblue ’18 is bred on a similar cross to my Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes winner and one of the toughest mares I have had the pleasure of training, AMANPOUR, and Group 2 winner & 3x Group 1 runner-up, ZOUSAIN who is a new addition to the Widden Stud stallion roster for 2020.

There are only a few shares remaining in our Zoustar x Monblue ’18 colt. This is your opportunity to get involved in a top quality 2yo who could have you racing in the major 2yo riches. Golden Slipper winner number eight?
