Our Group 1 winning mare FOXPLAY  2018-07-13
Quality 4 year old Group 1 winning mare Foxplay has been sold by her original ownership group to the international racing and breeding operation, Yulong Investments.

INHERIT wins on debut at Newcastle 2018-07-09
INHERIT caught many by surprise when winning on debut last Saturday at Newcastle over 1,200 metres with Lee Magorrian in the saddle. The son of Pierro had shown in his trials that he was most likely looking to be a "distance" horse with his racing style more akin to staying races.

ASTERIUS wins in eye catching style at Rosehill Gardens 2018-07-02
We remember the Saturday night session of the 2016 Magic Millions sale very well; the lovely grey Sebring colt was a real eye catcher, but most likely out of our price range. Yearling selector and sale advisor Steve Brem was also a fan of the colt as we had inspected him before he went through the ring 3 or 4 times. By Saturday afternoon we had decided that we definitely wanted the colt even if it meant going way "out of our comfort zone".

A Star Double on Saturday  2018-06-18
Our purple and white stars have been enjoying a great run of success lately and we were delighted to record another two winners on Saturday, on the same day that our champion trainer Chris Waller equalled his record number of metropolitan winners in a season. Chris has now trained 169 Sydney metro winners season to date with 6 weeks still to go until the end of the season...an amazing accomplishment!

That was a good weekend! 2018-06-13
The Star horses were to the fore in Brisbane and Sydney on Saturday with the beautiful 4 year old mare INVINCIBELLA winning the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes at Doomben, the final race on the program. Not ten minutes later 4 year old Star mare NOIRE won the last race on the card at Royal Randwick in slashing style, carrying 60.5kgs on a very rain affected track. Both mares are now looking to run in the Group 1 Tatts Tiara back at Doomben in a fortnight.

The Month of May... 2018-06-04
With Emma away for all of May we have been somewhat "slowly away from the barriers" with our reporting on all the monthly activities, not to mention our race wins, throughout this time...so here we go!

SEAWAY (NZ) returns to the winner's circle  2018-05-03
Third time to the races this preparation and it was back to the winner's enclosure for talented 3 year old colt SEAWAY (NZ) with a decisive win at Canterbury Park yesterday afternoon in the Benchmark 76 handicap over 1,550 metres. Tye Angland was in the saddle and rode the colt to perfection allowing SEAWAY (NZ) to settle on the rail slightly worse than midfield.

LILAKAI secures her first win at her second race start 2018-05-03
The blinkers might well have done the job! When Chris elected to send our 3 year old filly LILAKAI to his Gold Coast stable some weeks ago, he felt the local competition would be very beneficial to the filly to enable her to gain not only valuable race experience, but hopefully it would also give her the chance to notch up a win (or maybe even a few) in the area.

TWILIGHTER (NZ) relishes the step up in distance and wins 2018-04-24
Being by dual hemisphere Group 1 winner Reliable Man (GB), 3 year old filly TWILIGHTER (NZ) has inherited not only her dad's striking grey colouring, but also his staying power when she broke through for her first win on Saturday over 2,000 metres. The filly lined up at Kembla Grange with Mitchell Bell aboard and the pair settled towards the rear of the field during the early stages of the race.

REVOLVER wins in determined fashion at Newcastle 2018-04-16
History was made at Royal Randwick on Saturday as WINX recorded her 25th straight win and our trainer Chris Waller along with his dedicated team recorded a brilliant treble of Group 1 wins on the day. Chris and his team also had their hard work rewarded at Newcastle when our 4 year old gelding REVOLVER returned to the winner's circle second up this preparation following an extended period on the sidelines.

VELADERO resumes with an excellent win at Warwick Farm  2018-04-12
It's been a busy week for the thoroughbred industry in NSW with the ATC autumn racing carnival in full swing and the Inglis Easter yearling sale underway at the same time. Racing at Warwick Farm was conducted this week on Wednesday midway through the sale. Courtesy of a brilliant ride by Hugh Bowman and masterful placement by Chris and his team, our 4 year old gelding VELADERO resumed with a terrific win over 1,400 metres.

VELOCITA resumes with an impressive win on Easter Monday 2018-04-04
Our 3 year old Sebring filly VELOCITA went to the paddock following her first full preparation with the stable team having a good opinion of her ability. She justified that belief on Monday at Rosehill Gardens when she resumed with an impressive win over 1,400 metres.

CELLARMAN wins the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude 2018-04-03
CELLARMAN has been a model of consistency this entire preparation and last Saturday at Rosehill Gardens was the icing on the cake when he recorded his 7th victory this time in training winning the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude.

D'ARGENTO wins the 2018 Group 1 Rosehill Guineas 2018-03-26
The racing world was focused on Rosehill Gardens last Saturday for the 2018 Golden Slipper day; a nine race programme crammed full of world class racing including remarkably 5 Group 1 races. History was written as the great WINX broke the world record when winning her 17th Group 1 race. Chris and Hugh Bowman then shortly after combined again in the following race to secure a Group 1 double when our very talented So You Think (NZ) colt D'ARGENTO stormed home to win the prestigious Rosehill Guineas.

A Two State Double for our Purple and White Stars  2018-03-23
It was a great thrill to firstly watch IT'S CHOUX TIME (NZ) win at Ipswich yesterday and then to be followed by 3 year old Your Song gelding CEDARWOOD who won in very good style with the aid of a beautiful ride by Hugh Bowman at Newcastle.

GRESHAM wins well courtesy of a very good front running ride 2018-03-22
A plan to ride our 3 year old gelding GRESHAM forward in the 1,600 metres maiden at the midweek ATC metropolitan meeting at Gosford yesterday was developed by our trainer and executed perfectly by Blake Shinn. It achieved the desired result with an all the way win on the board for GRESHAM after a string of "close to the money" placings.

BALEARIC disposes of his maiden at Ipswich  2018-03-01
A move to the Chris Waller Gold Coast stable has benefited our 3 year old Smart Missile gelding BALEARIC as he broke through for his maiden win at Ipswich yesterday. Jockey Jim Byrne pushed forward on the gelding from the barriers and the pair settled in 4th position early on in the 1,350 metres event.

CELLARMAN continues his brilliant preparation  2018-02-27
When CELLARMAN won his previous start at Rosehill Gardens, Chris Waller said in his post race interview that "Winx may be an owner's fairytale, but CELLARMAN is every owner's dream" and we couldn't agree more.

From last to first for a huge win by FORTENSKY at Doomben 2018-02-20
In a performance which needed to be seen to be believed at Doomben on Saturday 4 year old gelding FORTENSKY jumped in the air as the barriers opened and found himself at the rear of the field in the 1,350 metres Class 6 on the programme.

ASTERIUS and Kerrin McEvoy win the first race at Canterbury  2018-02-19
When the late, very great veterinarian Dr Percy Sykes said "the best medicine of all for horses is the one which many owners wish to use least of all ...time" he was certainly on the mark. That philosophy has been borne out over the years as having a large element of accuracy without question, but the mental maturity of a horse is also often the key to their success a little later in their careers.
