Horse Description:

Farstar is a half-brother to SHARNEE ROSE, the classy filly Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained to finish third to superstar ATLANTIC JEWEL in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas and fourth in the Group 1 Schweppes Oaks.

SHARNEE ROSE went on to win a pair of Group 3 races in NSW for a Newcastle stable but Mat was especially keen to purchase this superb young athlete by the Golden Rose and Coolmore Stud Stakes winner ZOUSTAR.

ZOUSTAR, a son of NORTHERN METEOR, was a Group 2 winner as a two-year-old before improving at three to notch Group 1 victories in Sydney and Melbourne, beating the likes of DISSIDENT, NOT LISTENIN’TOME and DIVINE CALLING.

This gelding is from a super female family being closely related to Group 1 winner REWAAYA and hailing from the same stallion family as SNIPPETS, QUICK SCORE and NOT A SINGLE DOUBT.
