Starosa Gold Coast bound
Ten minutes after Rosemont Stud owned filly Sneaky Five won the $1M ATC Golden Gift on Saturday, the red Rosemont colours were in the winners’ circle again, this time at Doomben through the homebred filly Starosa (Starspangledbanner), who made it three wins in eight starts for trainer Tony Gollan.
“That prizemoney will probably see her qualified for the Magic Millions 3-year-old race, which is the long-term aim for her. There are still a few more fish to fry for her, there is a 1200 metre fillies race in a month’s time which she will target now, with a view to getting her some black type and enhancing her credentials for the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas,” Rosemnt Principal Anthony Mithen said.
Starosa won’t be the only Rosemont product on display at the Gold Coast in January, with its final draft of 22 yearlings for the Magic Millions Yearling Sale now entering their preparations.
“We’ve got 22 to take to Magic Millions and we have finalised that list. I had a look at them this week when they came in after they were washed and prettied up. There are some beautiful horses amongst them,” Mithen said.
“We had Adrian Bott to have a look at them last week, and he was rattling off horses that he was pretty keen to come and look at again at sale time. I think they will raise a few eyebrows which will be nice.”
The Rosemont yearlings will be officially available for inspection from December 1st.
