STOP PRESS - Ellis Snaps Up Zoustar Colt

 

After securing the fourth lot of the Magic Millions' Gold Coast sale, a So You Think colt, it wasn't long until David was back in full bidding mode - and what a colt he has bought now!

 

This Zoustar colt 'picked himself', an absolute stand out in David, Jamie and Andy Williams' view.  There was no way he wasn't coming home to race in the tangerine.  What surprised us most is that we didn't have to dig as deeply into the sale budget as we were sure we would have to.

Yes, hard to believe, our early bird tactics saw us buy him for just $A$160,000.

From the draft of Widden Stud, he's a great mover with a long, loping stride - it's hard to believe he is a yearling as he looks like you could put a saddle on him right now.  he's got the pedigree as well as the looks, as you can see.

His dam has had one horse to race and our colt's half brother has already won four times.  He is from the family of that brilliant Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes winner La Bella Dama who was an outstanding race horse - winning seven times from 1200m - 2000m.  Talk about versatile!  La Bella Dama won seven stakes' races in total and was stakes' placed a further nine times!

We expected this colt to sell for a whole lot more - like all our purchases he has been given the thorough thrice over by our senior veterinarian Dr Douglas Black who is on the Gold Coast with the team.

Email Karyn now - we know his shares will sell like hot cakes!
