The very impressive win from Stars Above over the 2130 metre trip at Gloucester Park tonight has firmly set the scene for First Crop sire, Follow The Stars, to make a massive play for sire of the year.
With 7 individual winners already this season, Follow The Stars leads to many to believe that colonial sires will eventually lead the way into the future and save our sport.
While The Stars Above helped some very astute punters cash in on his juice odds of $3.20 don’t think this very talented colt id done with yet. Trainer Justine Prentice has been talking this fella up since he landed under his care and I can see why.
The Stars Above is out of the N2 Albert Albert mare Miss Jeffries This branch of the family features some truly wonderful horses. Many people would know that Ameretto, who has won north of $565,000, is this family’s most talented member of late.
Although strange and a touch sad, the thirteenth and last foal of Miss Jiffies looks to her best prospect going forward. Breeding horses has plenty of challenges;However, youngsters like The Stars Above clearly bring much promise and excitement into the sport.
