Zoustar Gets Second Stakes Winner

Zoustar, Australia’s leading first season sire by prizemoney, added a second stakes winner to his record when the classy prospect Zousain won the G2 Champagne Classic at Doomben on Saturday.

Zousain Horseform is one of six first crop winners by Zoustar and joins the Magic Millions Classic and Reisling Stakes winner Sunlight as his other stakes winner.

The Chris Waller-trained Zousain (Zoustar x Pasar Silbano by Elnadim) was purchased by David Redvers and Mulcaster Bloodstock for $400,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the Edinglassie Stud draft and has now won two of his four starts for prize money of $157,190.


He is first to race out of the US G3 winner Pasar Silbano, a sister to the Listed winner Come To Heel and a half-sister to Listed-winning two-year-old Gerfalcon (Hawk Wing).

His second dam Give A Whistle (Mujadil) is a half-sister to the dam of stakes winner Made Of Gold (Ontario), while his third dam Repique (Sharpen Up) is a half-sister to dual G1 winner and champion miler Indian Lodge (Grand Lodge), G2 winner Sarhoob (Alydar), G3 winner Sifting Gold (Slew O’ Gold) and stakes winner Buy Or Sell (Brief Truce).

Zoustar (Northern Meteor) is leading the first season sires standings by earnings from Spirit Of Boom but the latter has had five stakes winners among his 16 individual first crop winners.

Zousain is on track to emulate Zoustar and he will now be aimed at the G2 BRC Sires' Produce Stakes at Doomben on May 26, a race his sire won in 2014.

Zousain is Waller's fourth Champagne Stakes winner joining Pressday (2010), Brazen Beau (2014) and Tangled (2017).

Spirit Of Boom (Sequalo) continued his excellent first season when the filly Bold Sensation, from the Shovhog mare Gypsy Star, became his 16th winner with a debut victory at Rockhampton.

R5 DOOMBEN 12 May 2018
Moet & Chandon Classic 2 , 1200m
Race Synopsis: The Chris Waller-trained colt Zousain has now raced four times for two wins and he was quite impressive in scoring his first stakes success in taking out this Group Two race. He settled back in eighth place, behind a strong tempo, before looking for a split on turning for home. He then got through to third at the 200m, hit the front at the 100m before drawing away to score decisively. Mishani Hustler raced outside the leader (Pennino) at a good tempo and kept fighting gamely for second after working on the pace for most of the race. Blue Book raced near the tail of the 11-horse field, switched deeper into clear running on turning for home and kept running on well to take third, just in front of Sizzling Ace who came from last to finish (2.8 lengths) fourth. Dynamited was a handy sixth to the home turn and held on for (3.5 lengths) fifth while Sizzling Belle settled back in the field and was blocked in the home straight for eighth, resuming here.
