First foal of 2021 is a Zoustar!
The foaling season is upon us at Tweenhills!
Sammy and her team welcomed the first foal of 2021 at 6.37pm on Tuesday 12 January, a bouncing bay filly by Tweenhills stallion Zoustar out of star mare An Ghalanta (by Holy Roman Emperor).
Zoustar is about to undertake his third Northern Hemisphere season standing at Tweenhills. He currently has 57 of his regally-bred yearlings selling at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in Australia.
An Ghalanta was a two-year-old Listed sprint winner in Ireland before being bought at Goffs November Sale in 2012 by David Redvers for €140,000.
She has since produced two smart sprint two-year-old fillies herself in Time Scale (by Charm Spirit), who won the Listed Empress Stakes last June, and Bletchley (by Makfi), who was beaten a whisker by a future Gr.1 winner in the Gr.3 Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot 2016.
An Ghalanta also produced a bay Roaring Lion colt last January and is a very valuable member of the Qatar Racing broodmare band at Tweenhills.
