QUALITY YEARLING WITH AN EYE CATCHING WALK
Our Star Turn colt was born and bred at Vinery Stud who consistently produce quality yearlings for racing throughout the world. He has that eye catching walk that gives us the confidence that he will make a presence in racing.
This colt is a beautiful mover and has an exceptional stride, he seems to be a forward type and will not take long to come to hand. We expect him to continue to improve as he gets older. His temperament is faultless, the presence of this colt was one of the characteristics that really stood out during the inspections.
He is 20/20 Goldmine and is the direct descendant to 17 individual black type winners including, 4 Gr 1’s, 2 Gr 2’s and 6 Gr 3’s.
Our Star Turn colt has also passed 100% clean on his scope and clinical examination.
Sire: STAR TURN
STAR TURN by STAR WITNESS. 3 wins 1 at 2 and stakes earnings of $877,300 his oldest progeny are 2yo.
Star Turn was a Powerhouse Sprinter and the only 3yo colt of his generation who measured up to weight-for-age Group 1 racing in the Autumn.
But he 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 the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper, respectively.
As a 3yo, Star Turn returned for a Spring campaign with a dominant victory over Golden Slipper winner, Capitalist in the San Domenico Stakes Group 3 and was then sent to Melbourne, where he produced another brilliant burst of acceleration to win the WFA Group 2 Schillaci Stakes against older horses (Malaguerra, Fell Swoop). He signed off with a credible third in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes. Trainer John Hawkes put the result into perspective. “Give us the winner’s run and we win. Simple as that.”
