Enjoy some fun facts below:
- A striking bay colt by sire Star Turn
- Purchased at 2023 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale (Lot 1075) for AUD $154,000 (inc GST) from Baramul Stud in Widden Valley, NSW.
- Star Turn was a Powerhouse Sprinter and the ONLY 3yo colt of his generation who measured up to weight-for-age (WFA) Gr.1 racing in the Autumn and he is passing his strength and precocity into his progeny.
- Star Turn wasn’t just a phenomenal 3yo! In a stellar crop of colts, Star Turn drew first blood as a Spring 2yo in the Pierro Plate at Randwick before a 2nd to Flying Artie in the Blue Diamond Prelude in the Autumn. His only unplaced runs in a 12 start career were 5th and 6th in Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper respectively.
- It’s not surprising that he was a pre-Christmas juvenile winner given his precocious pedigree and sharp looks being a $400,000 yearling. He is by Gr.1 Blue Diamond-winning Star Witness, who won 3 of his 4 2yo starts and is from 5-time Stakes winning sprinter Golden Delicious.
- As a 3yo Star Turn returned for a Spring campaign with a dominant victory over Golden Slipper winner Capitalist in the San Domenico Stakes Gr.3 and was then sent to Melbourne, where he produced another brilliant burst of acceleration to win the WFA Gr.2 Schillaci Stakes against older horses (Malaguerra, Fell Swoop).
- Star Turn retired in 2017 following a three start Autumn campaign highlighted by Group 1 WFA placings in some of Australia’s premier sprints; the Lightning Stakes, Newmarket Hcp, and William Reid Stakes.
- In one of the most impressive groups of freshman sires, Star Turn holds his own and is a consistent top 5 stallion on the Australian second-season winners, wins, and prizemoney table.
- Star Turn had the highest 2-year-old winning strike rate of all sires in 2020-21 at better than 46%. That’s 11% higher than Snitzel! As well as precocious 2-year old’s, this season Star Turn proved his ability to sire talented three-year old’s.
