Monday, 24th October 2016

At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Brighthill Farm's blue blooded stallion Dalghar (Anabaa-Daltawa, by Miswaki) - a half-brother to 7-time Gr1 winning champion Daylami and 4-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Dalakhani - added a black-type success when 3YO filly Astara (Dalghar-Svita, by Success Express) scored by a neck for trainers Donna Logan & Chris Gibbs in the NZ$50,000 Listed Soliloquy Stakes (1400m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Glass Slipper (Pins-Fairy Tale, by Tale of the Cat) & Mystery Show (Sakhee's Secret-Showstra, by Stravinsky). Astara improved her record to 3 wins (including the Listed Champagne Stakes) and 1 placing from 7 starts for NZ$78,800 earnings. Astara is bred and raced by Perth businessman Neven Botica who also owns her Gr3-winning sire Dalghar.
