Zoustar X Classic Guitar Colt



  • UPDATE** half-brother (by HELMET) wins at third start by 6 lengths!

ZOUSTAR, the only dual Group 1-winning son of NORTHERN METEOR, followed in his father's and grandfather's (ENCOSTA DE LAGO) footsteps on the racetrack in winning the prestigious Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington. The time recorded was the second fastest 1200-metre race held at Flemington during the entire 2013-14 season - not bad for a spring 3YO!

ZOUSTAR's first crop were an extremely attractive bunch but one colt was a standout at the Inglis EASTER Sale. Embodying that same NORTHERN METEOR look, this colt was correct and observant with a great demeanour about him.
And what about his maternal family! From the city winning LONHRO mare Classic Guitar, 18 of the 18 foals in the first three dams to race, are all winners! Last season LONHRO's mares have produced stakes winners like DERRYN, MORTON’S FORK, GATTING, CURDLED, ASPECT, and VERANILLO.
Joe Pride is thrilled to be training this colt after taking such a shine to him at the sales. Considering that ZOUSTAR's average yearling price in 2017 was in excess of $250k we were delighted to secure him for $80k.
