Lot 51 chestnut filly Zoustar – Positive Problems (Sebring) (draft: Widden Stud)

Most recently Te Akau Racing has been represented on the race track by Zoustar daughter Stella Splendia, winner of four from eight and destined for stakes racing, and debut winning two-year-old When Stars Align. Having won six of his nine starts, including two Group Ones and a Group Two, Zoustar became one of the most sought after stallions in Australia, following the premature demise of his sire Northern Meteor (Encosta De Lago) who had been Champion First Season Sire, as too was Zoustar. 

Zoustar was sold to stud for $14 million in the week leading up to his victory in the Coolmore Stud Stakes (Gr. 1, 1200m) at Flemington, which provided jockey Jim Cassidy with his 100th Group One winner. Cassidy claimed Zoustar to be “a better three-year-old than Redoute’s Choice and more brilliant than Pierro”. Dam Positive Problems, by Golden Slipper (Gr. 1, 1200m) winner Sebring (More Than Ready), won six races to 1600 metres, and her two foals to race have both won, including dual winning brother Celestial Spirit (Zoustar). 

“She’s a high quality filly, very athletic, and these Zoustar fillies are performing incredibly well,” Ellis said. “We’ve got the Matamata Breeders’ Stakes (Gr. 2, 1200m) winner Zourion in our stable at Cranbourne, and she measured up to the best of her age group as a three-year-old in Australia. “This filly is really strong, with all the qualities and strength that good Zoustar fillies have, and the dam sire Sebring is also really evident in her makeup. 

“He was a top 10 Australian sire for many years, Sebring, and the dam sire of our Karaka Million and Group One winner On The Bubbles.” The filly carries a Danehill (Danzig) cross through the dam line of Zoustar and the dam line of dam sire Sebring.
