Zoustar yearling breaks the $1m mark

A strong start that saw a Zoustar colt sell for $900,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Cost Yearling Sale in Australia on Tuesday continued when another changed hands for $1,075,000.

The $900,000 colt (pictured) was out of US Stakes performer Shakeira and had been purchased for $310,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Weanling Sale last year by Redwall Bloodstock – the pinhooking joint-venture between Tweenhills’ David Redvers and Hannah Wall.

Lot 117, he was consigned here by Widden Stud, who obviously stand Zoustar when he’s at home in Australia – Zoustar is currently settling in at Tweenhills in preparation for the 2019 breeding season.

The colt was purchased at this sale by Spendthrift Australia, whose orange and purple quartered colours are particularly famous in the United States thanks to the likes of Beholder. They also stand a number of stallions, both in America and Australia.

The $1,075,000 - Lot 320 - was consigned by KBL Thoroughbreds (as agent for Bowcock Bloodstock) and bought by Zhang Yuesheng's Yu Long Investments Pty Ltd/RIFA Mustang. Out of Stakes-placed Al Maher (by Danehill) mare Acouplamas, the colt is a half-brother to three-year-old The August, who was last seen running in the Gr.1 Caulfied Guineas.

It was more evidence that Zoustar is crossing really well with Danzig-line mares.

Other Zoustar yearlings sold at the sale for $700,000, $625,000, $480,000, $460,000 (x2), $400,000, $300,000 (x2) etc.

Zoustar really is making an unbelievable impression in Australia, these sales results coming on the back of his excellent results with his two- and three-year-olds so far, and we at Tweenhills already know he’s proving very popular with European breeders too.
