Follow The Stars’ stock on the rise

Follow The Stars’ stock on the rise

By Peter Wharton

The Art Major horse FOLLOW THE STARS, who stands at Allwood Stud, is leaving smart two-year-olds from his second crop, the oldest of which are now three years.

Star Of Willoughby, who won his second race at Pinjarra in 1:59.9, is a colt by FOLLOW THE STARS from the Allamerican Ingot mare Lady Willoughby, while the Allwood Stud bred and owned Star For Me finished runner-up in the Group 1 $100,000 WA Diamond Classic at Gloucester Park.

FOLLOW THE STARS has produced six individual two-year-old winners this season to date.

FOLLOW THE STARS was represented by five three-year-old winners last month and now has 20 individual winners from his first crop of 60 foals – a creditable 33 percent winners-to-foals record.

Star Fromthepalace, a Diamond Classic heat winner in 1:59, The Stars Above (1:58.7, Pinjarra) and the Bunbury winners Star Of The Class (1:58.3), Follow The Dragon (1:59.4) and Stride Like A Star have been other recent winners sired by FOLLOW THE STARS.

Companion sire LOMBO MANDINGO left a couple of impressive winners in Brocks Territory, a winner in 1:52.2 at Menangle, and Pamy June, who won at Pinjarra in 1:56.8 and Bunbury in 1:57.5.

Other Allwood Stud bred winners in May were Jesse Allwood, a winner at Gloucester Park in 1:59.6, Allwood Mach (1:58.5, Bunbury), For Honourandglory (Bunbury) and the trotter Always A Dreamer (Gloucester Park and Pinjarra).
