Star Witness X My Mum Ines

Sire: Star Witness

Dam: My Mum Ines

Colour: Bay

Gender: Colt

Age: 1 year old

Foaled: Aug 21st, 2016

Country: Australia

Trainer's Name: Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra

Horse Description:

Speed and staying strength abound in Ellerton Zahra Racing’s Magic Millions offering by the dual Group 1 winner STAR WITNESS.

STAR WITNESS won the Blue Diamond Stakes at two before returning at three to claim the Coolmore Stud Stakes down the Flemington straight to cap a racing career that featured three wins at two.

STAR WITNESS has done a brilliant job at stud as the sire of Group 1 Thousand Guineas winner GLOBAL GLAMOUR, the brilliant Group 2-winning sprinter STAR TURN, who now stands at stud, South African Group 2 winner MELLA MARIA & the outstanding stakes performers CROWN WITNESS, FUHRYK and OUR CROWN MISTRESS.

This superb colt is out of My Mum Ines, a daughter of the impeccably-bred Derby winner DON EDUARDO, who hails from the wonderful EIGHT CARAT family, which has produced the likes of OCTAGONAL, KAAPSTAD, MOUAWAD, (OUR) MARQUISE and DIAMOND LOVER, this colt’s grand dam.

DON EDUARDO is a half-brother to dual Group 1 winner TRISTALOVE and it’s no surprise that such a super pedigree has been successful with this lovely athlete hailing from the same family as Makybe Diva Stakes winner VIGOR, Group 2-winning sprinter SEA LORD and New Zealand Group 2 winner JOEY MASSINO.

This colt’s marvellous pedigree is sure to create immediate interest and any inspection will almost ‘seal the deal’ immediately, especially when prospective buyers find out the price, which is a steal.
