Hoystar Wins Frederick Clissold Stakes

Monday, 3rd March 2008

Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning Arrowfield Stud sire Danzero (Danehill-Confidentially, by Kaoru Star) added a group success when 4YO gelding Hoystar (Danzero-Professionelle, by Centaine) gained the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Gr3 Frederick Clissold Stakes (1200m) at Randwick. Hoystar (ridden by Dan Nikolic for trainer Peter Snowden) scored by a half-neck from favoured 5YO gelding Friday Creek (Commands-Candles, by Al Hareb) with a further short-neck to fellow 4YO gelding Danleigh (Mujahid-Graceful Lily, by Dr Grace). Hoystar (a $400,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 4 wins & 2 placings from 8 starts for $154,100 earnings.
