Zoustar Champion Third-Season Sire
Already Champion First-Season and Second-Season Sire, Zoustar is now Champion Third-Season Sire in Australia following the close of the racing season, dominating his peers by earnings, winners and Stakes winners.
Zoustar also became the youngest sire to produce 100 winners for the season, his milestone coming at Geelong on Friday with the impressive debut victory of two-year-old filly Sweetzou.
Sweetzou is the second and final foal of unraced Fastnet Rock mare Sweet Butterfly, a half-sister to Stakes winner City of Song.
Zoustar’s 100 winners came from just 201 runners – a very impressive statistic – and among those winners were seven Stakes winners who won 10 Stakes races between them, winning over $11.1 million in prize money.
Zoustar’s Stakes winners for the season were: Sunlight, Madam Rouge, Mizzy, Haut Brion Her, Zoutori, Sisstar and Solar Star, all Group winners bar the last-named.
After another successful shuttling trip to Tweenhills, Zoustar is set to stand alongside his Gr.2-winning son Zousain at Widden Stud this Southern Hemisphere breeding season.
Zoustar will cover another stellar book of mares at a fee of A$121,000, while Zousain is A$19,800.
