Zoustar filly Sisstar breaks track record!
Zoustar's daughter Sisstar - the younger full sister of triple Gr.1 winner Sunlight - broke the track record over the famous 955m at Moonee Valley on Friday.
Sisstar was winning the final of the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge and stopped the clock in 54.45s, winning by half a length after coming late.
Trained by the 'Sunlight' team of Tony and Calvin McEvoy, Sisstar was returning after winning the Magic Millions 3&4YO Classic over 1100m at Ballarat in November. She also won the Gr.3 Red Roses Stakes in 2019.
Sisstar showed her class on Friday under a great ride from apprentice Matthew Cartwright.
Tony McEvoy said: “That’s just incredible, to win the last heat and get the record.
“That was really exciting, Matty Cartwright showed a lot of maturity, we’ll be using him again!”
The McEvoys will bank a A$55,000 cheque for the trainer of the fastest heat winner of the Ladbrokes 55 Second Series.
