Runway Star Wins Listed Matrice Stakes
At Morphettville in Adelaide yesterday, Widden Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) added a black-type success when 4YO mare Runway Star (Northern Meteor-Intuit, by Commands) scored by 0.6-length for trainer Peter Moody in the $80,000 Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Riziz (Zariz-Priya, by Covetous) & 5YO gelding Mandla (Bel Esprit-Queen Kahuna, by Rustic Amber). This was the first stakes victory for the progressive Runway Star who took her record to 4 wins and 2 placings from 11 starts for $222,620 earnings. Runway Star was purchased by Belmont Bloodstock Agency for $300,000 at the 2012 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Widden Stud.
