This is a filly with so much upside …
Firstly, she offers tremendous residual value … not only is she by a rapidly emerging source of juvenile talent, the female side of this pedigree definitely points to a type that could well mature into a ‘miler’ performer.
The filly is beautifully put together and appears typical of the many ZOUSTARs we have inspected so far this year. She has plenty of scope about her and is a real classy type.
ZOUSTAR, of course, was a brilliant performer: unbeaten at 2 including a Group 2 victory, a Group 1 winner (Golden Rose Stakes) second-up at 3, beating subsequent Horse of the Year DISSIDENT, before capping off his career with an emphatic win in the ‘sire making’ Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, which was won by both his sire NORTHERN METEOR and grandsire ENCOSTA DE LAGO.
This filly is from a fantastic producing family, being also a ½ sister to Mike Moroney’s city winner and Group 1 performer MIA ROSA, while her dam, OUR OAK was a winner over a mile and is one of 6 winners from winning the French mare OAK BELL, whose runners include Sydney stakes winner and the Group 2 placed WELLINGTON.
OAK BELL’s dam, OAK HILL was a Group 1 winner in France and a ¾ sister to Champion racehorse & sire SASSAFRAS.
Further Stakes performers in the family include OBRIGADO, COUPE DE CHAMPE, OAK DANCER, ZALFA, BELOAKO, SILVER HILL etc
Arguably the most exciting young sire in Australia!
A sire son of the much missed NORTHERN METEOR (76% winners to runners), ZOUSTAR has already seen his stud career get off to a flying start, with SUNLIGHT ($2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner & Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes winner) and ZOUSAIN (a city winner on debut and 4th – beaten a ½ length – in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes). He is the current leading First-Season Sire, almost $1 Million ahead of his nearest rival!
ZOUSTAR, meanwhile, had an impeccable career on the racetrack, winning his only 3 races at 2 including the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes and, in his 2nd start at 3, he won the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes defeating subsequent Horse of the Year, DISSIDENT.
ZOUSTAR would then capture the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes by over 4 lengths before capping his tremendous career with an emphatic victory in the ‘sire making’ Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes over 1200m (also won by his sire NORTHERN METEOR and grandsire ENCOSTA DE LAGO).
ZOUSTAR has been given every opportunity to succeed at stud, covering over 700 mares in his first 4 seasons, and with his start so far, there’s every chance his stud fee will rise, making NOW the time to race the progeny of ZOUSTAR!
A classy mover, this filly is steeped in pedigree, featuring the very best bloodlines from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres!
Firstly, this hugely exciting filly is a ½ sister to the Mike Moroney trained MIA ROSA (pictured), who won impressively over 1400m at Randwick last year before going on to campaign in three successive Group races, including the Group 1 Queensland Oaks.
The yearling’s dam, OUR OAK, is a winner herself over 1600m and multiple city placed, but was among 6 winners from six foals to race by the French mare OAK BELL, whose best runners include WELLINGTON, winner of the Listed Dulcify over 2000m at Randwick at his 4th start, and placed at Group 3 level at Royal Randwick, while his ½ brothers BELOAKO and SILVER HILL were both stakes placed.
OUR OAK is by SHOW A HEART, a leading broodmare sire in Australia, with his daughters producing five Stakes winners including Group 1 winner MISS COVER GIRL and Group 2 winner WINNING RUPERT.
Oak Bell’s dam, OAK HILL, in turn was a Group 1 winner in France, winning the prestigious Longchamp Criterium des Pouliches, who produced Listed winner OAK DANCER (Group 3 placed), and is the granddam of Group winners OBRIGADO, COUPE DE CHAMPE etc.
This is also the family of Champion racehorse and sire SASSAFRAS.
With the frightening speed of ZOUSTAR, and quality European bloodlines from this filly’s family, it all makes for a potent Sprinter/Miler pedigree!!
And at just $7,495 per 5% share, she represents outstanding value on the racetrack, with excellent residual value for after her racing career!
