Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott Racing

Race a fabulous filly by the AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION 2YO - STAR WITNESS, with the trainers of the sire's best progeny to date, the dual GROUP ONE WINNER - "'GLOBAL GLAMOUR'''.

Star Witness was a stunning last to first victor of the GROUP 1 Blue Diamond Stakes as a 2YO before maturing into a magnificent 3yo colt that dominated in the GROUP 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes and was able to perform internationally at the highest level when running a sensational 2nd in the prestigious GROUP 1 ROYAL ASCOT King’s Stand Stakes. As a sire he has already been crowned 2015-16 Leading Second Season sire by winners and is firmly cementing himself as an international stallion with stakes winners in South Africa and an incredible 80% winners to runners strike rate in Hong Kong. He is the sire of no fewer than than 9 stakes winners including explosive sprinting stallion prospect STAR TURN and our wonderful GLOBAL GLAMOUR – winner of the Group 1 Thousand Guineas and Gr.1 Flight Stakes (Winning both races just seven days apart!).

In our stable at present we are thrilled to have the very talented Star Witness filly out of the quality producer, SHANTHA'S GIRL. In the months since purchasing her (for a steal at $80,000 at the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale), the filly has been broken in and has had her second preparation here at Tulloch Lodge under the guidance of Gai and Adrian.

Already a granddaughter of GROUP ONE Emirates Stakes winner SKY CUDDLE, the filly’s pedigree has also had recent significant updates with her 3yo half-brother VIOLATE now a multiple STAKES PLACED performer. Violate recently ran 4th in the GROUP ONE QLD DERBY, 3rd in the GROUP THREE Grand Prix Stakes and a terrific 2nd in the GROUP THREE Gunsynd Classic. Another exciting development on the pedigree page is the filly’s 2yo half-brother Zoology recently running second on debut in Victoria.

Bred on a cross that already has a proven record with 11% of starters winning Stakes races, she is a well grown filly with great athleticism and a real assertiveness. This is a filly that seems destined for success and we are very excited to be offering a filly of this calibre at such an affordable price. The possibilities are endless when you wish upon a STAR.
