At Caulfield in Melbourne, Widden Stud's dual Gr1-winning stallion Star Witness (Starcraft-Leone Chiara, by Lion Hunter) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Crown Witness (Star Witness-Noble Heir, by Kahal) held on determinedly to defy all challengers by 0.2-length for trainer Stuart Webb in the $150,750 Gr3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) for 3YO fillies, over last season's Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes winner Catchy and Ploverset. This was the first stakes victory for the undefeated Crown Witness and took her record to 3 wins for $221,500 earnings. Crown Witness was a $50,000 purchase at the 2016 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Golden Grove and is a son of a South African Gr1 sprint-winning mare.
