Snowdens To Train Kiwi Filly

Wednesday, 1st March 2017

Dual stakes winner Astara (Dalghar-Svita, by Success Express) has been transferred across the Tasman to continue her racing career, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 3YO won the Listed Soliloquy Stakes in October and the Listed Champagne Stakes at the end of her juvenile season for trainers Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs. "Her owner, Neven Botica, has transferred Astara to Sydney," Logan said. "I believe she is now with the Snowden stable. Neven is hoping to get some exposure for Astara's sire Dalghar as he is a majority owner of the stallion." Astara was beaten less than three lengths in the Gr1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas behind Saturday's Gr2 Surround Stakes winner La Bella Diosa. Astara was bred by the Perth-based Botica who stands her Gr3-winning sire Dalghar at Brighthill Farm in New Zealand. The blue blooded Dalghar (Anabaa-Daltawa, by Miswaki) is a half-brother to 7-time Gr1 winning champion Daylami as well as 4-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Dalakhani.
