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.

AQUATIC wins again on a 5 day back up at Warwick Farm 2018-02-15
AQUATIC was an impressive winner under lights last Friday night at Canterbury Park and whilst Chris appreciated that it was a quick back up for the gelding to race at Warwick Farm yesterday, he was of the opinion that a 1,600 metres race on the programme was ideal for AQUATIC...and he was right. Another masterful training effort!

AQUATIC shines under lights at Canterbury Park 2018-02-13
AQUATIC and visiting Irish jockey Declan McDonogh went one better than their previous start when taking out the 1,550 metres event in convincing fashion at Canterbury Park on Friday night. The combination were narrowly beaten at Warwick Farm on Australia Day over the shorter distance of 1,400 metres so it was exciting for the owners of AQUATIC to be back in the winner's circle at last.

2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Purchases 2018-02-12
We secured a number of gorgeous yearlings at the 2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale to race in our purple and white stars.

RAW EMOTION wins in determined fashion at Kembla Grange 2018-02-08
At Kembla Grange on Tuesday, 3 year old filly RAW EMOTION broke through for her maiden win at only her third career start. In the colours of Nick Vass Bloodstock, the filly jumped well from her inside barrier for jockey Glyn Schofield and the pair settled nicely in third position during the early stages of the 1,600 metres event.

Another Saturday double for our purple and white stars 2018-02-05
As the Sydney autumn carnival began, it was a great thrill to have our Star horses again win 2 races on a Saturday, this time at Rosehill Gardens. The Widden Stakes for 2 year old fillies was won in great style by FIESTA. The I Am Invincible filly had a checkered passage in the Gimcrack, the first 2 year old race for fillies in NSW for the season which was run in the spring. With Kerrin McEvoy aboard on Saturday, FIESTA jumped from the barrier and made contact with the filly in the next stall.

FORTENSKY wins at Canterbury and races past $200,000  2018-02-05
If there was a "vote" for Star's most consistent performer then 4 year old gelding FORTENSKY would clearly be a major contender. With 5 wins and 8 placings from 17 race starts he has consistently raced well in his 18 months race career to date. His very determined win at Canterbury Park on Friday night was another example of a genuine racehorse continuing to improve with time...

Star's Royal Randwick Saturday Double 2018-01-22
We always ask new owners what it is that they're hoping for when looking to buy an interest in a horse for the first time. The reply is often that they would love to win a race in the metropolitan area, so it was a thrill once again on Saturday for 2 of our Star horses to win on the programme at Royal Randwick.

MONTEVIDEO wins at Kilmore courtesy of a masterful ride  2018-01-22
As a late season 2 year old Husson (ARG) gelding MONTEVIDEO was still a slow to mature individual who was taking an eternity to get "mind and body" together to the point where he was able to best display his talent on the track. Early barrier trials in Sydney weren't encouraging, so Chris and his team decided that Victoria would be a good spot for the gelding because of the wide variety of tracks quite close to Melbourne....

INVINCIBELLA wins the 2018 Magic Millions Fillies and Mares 2018-01-16
It was a memorable day for the owners of 4 year old mare INVINCIBELLA when she powered home to win the $1 million Magic Millions at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Star's 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Purchases 2018-01-15
We secured a number of gorgeous colts and fillies from the 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast yearling sale to carry our purple and white stars.

Star's Weekend of Winners 2018-01-08
At Royal Randwick on Saturday, 4 year old Love Conquers All gelding FORTENSKY resumed over 1,200 metres with a strong win, thanks to a masterful ride from Hugh Bowman.

A winning Star double creates lots of Christmas cheer 2017-12-27
CELLARMAN and NOIRE provided a Star winning double under lights at Canterbury Park at the end of November and the pair were in form again with both winning at Warwick Farm on Saturday. The two Star horses are enjoying wonderful preparations and each is giving their owners much to celebrate over the festive season.

An easy win under lights at Canterbury Park for SEAWAY (NZ) 2017-12-18
Star's 2016 New Zealand Karaka Premier yearling sale purchase SEAWAY (NZ) made it back to back wins at Canterbury Park when he scored in easy fashion at the ATC night meeting last Friday.

CORINTH displays his staying potential at Hawkesbury 2017-12-11
Sunday's 1,800 metres at Hawkesbury was the winning formula in conjunction with a strong ride by jockey Jay Ford, for CORINTH to break through for his first win from a small number of starts. The 3 year old son of Pierro had not displayed early speed in his earlier races over the shorter distances, but it has been evident a staying trip would be to his liking.

NOIRE two from two this preparation with an impressive win  2017-12-11
Last start winner NOIRE was eye catching when she won first up this preparation under lights at Canterbury Park last month and once again she displayed on Saturday that she is a 4 year old mare with considerable upside. Her CV now boasts 4 wins and 2 seconds from only 8 starts.

VELOCITA "jumps out of the ground" to win well at Wyong 2017-11-30
No race watcher would have missed the "last to first" win by our obviously talented 3 year old Sebring filly VELOCITA at Wyong yesterday under the guidance of the "Sebring man himself" Blake Shinn. A Wednesday Sydney metropolitan meeting conducted at the provincial track, the programme offered good prize money for owners on the day and allowed our filly an important first city win on her pedigree page.

SEAWAY (NZ) leads home an exciting Star quinella  2017-11-23
Three year old Ocean Park (NZ) colt SEAWAY (NZ) broke through for his maiden win at only his second career start, when winning at Canterbury Park yesterday. In doing so, he nudged out fellow Star three year old BALEARIC, resulting in a Star quinella in the 1,250 metres event.

Our purple and white stars shine under lights at Canterbury 2017-11-20
It was an exciting night for our owners on Friday when both Star runners at Canterbury Park recorded impressive wins. Four year old Foxwedge mare NOIRE was eye catching when winning first up in the fillies and mares race over 1,100 metres while 4 year old gelding CELLARMAN made it back to back wins at the same track when taking out the 1,550 metres handicap.
