Zoustar Wins Gr1 Golden Rose Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, ill-fated Widden Stud sire Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) added a Gr1 triumph when 3YO colt Zoustar (Northern Meteor-Zouzou, by Redoute's Choice) scored by 0.3-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $1,000,000 Gr1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, over fellow colts Dissident (Sebring-Diana's Secret, by Anabaa) & Bull Point (Fastnet Rock-Rose Of Cimmaron, by Bite The Bullet). This was the highly talented Zoustar's maiden Gr1 victory and took his record to 4 wins (also including the Gr2 Sires Produce Stakes at Doomben) & a runner-up (including the Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes at Eagle Farm) from 6 starts.
