Stoute's Hillstar Supplemented For King George

Wednesday, 24th July 2013

Connections of improving 3YO colt Hillstar (Danehill Dancer-Crystal Star, by Mark of Esteem) have paid a £75,000 late entry fee for the £1 million King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2400m) at Ascot this weekend, reports 1.skysports.com. The son of Danehill Dancer marked himself as a progressive young galloper when easily dispensing with highly fancied duo Battle Of Marengo and Mutashaded in the Gr2 King Edward Stakes at Royal Ascot. Hillstar, a half-brother to multiple group-winning mare Crystal Capella (Cape Cross), is trained by Sir Michael Stoute who will be bidding to become the most successful trainer in the history of the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Stoute has thus far trained five winners of England's premier weight-for-age flat race, a record he shares with fellow horseman Saeed Bin Suroor and Dick Hern.
