Star Turn / Breeding Racing
STAR TURN (AUS)(Star Witness-Golden Delicious, by Made of Gold)
Vinery Stud, NSW. Fee: $22,000

Star Turn Overview

Star Turn is the epitome of 2yo speed, power and pedigree and trained on as a 3yo to contest four of Australia’s premier Gr.1 sprints.

He is by Star Witness, who won three of his four 2yo starts including the Blue Diamond Stakes, Gr.1. His dam, Golden Delicious had 13 wins to 1200m, five of which were at Stakes level.

Star Turn himself drew first blood as a Spring 2yo in the Pierro Plate at Randwick, before a 2nd to Flying Artie in the Blue Diamond Prelude in the Autumn. His only unplaced runs win a12-start career were 5th and 6th in the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper respectively.

Star Turn returned for a 3yo Spring campaign with a dominant victory over Golden Slipper winner Capitalist in the San Domenio Stakes Gr.3 and was never again unplaced despite taking on all comers. He was sent to Melbourne and produced another brilliant burst of speed to win the WFA Schillaci Stakes Gr.2 against older horses (Malaguerra, Fell Swoop). That prep was signed off with a third in the Coolmore Stud Stakes Gr.1.

Trainer John Hawkes has always said “from day one he was outstanding. He was just a real athlete!”

He stayed in Melbourne at WFA level for the Autumn of 2017 earning a trio of Gr.1 placings in Australia’s premier sprints for older horses, The Lighting Stakes Gr.1, William Reid Stakes Gr.1, and the Newmarket Hcp Gr.1.

He retired sound to Vinery Stud in 2017 as one of the toughest 3yo sprinters from a stellar crop of colts.

He covered a full book of mares in his first season and is an obvious outcross option. Anticipation is mounting ahead of his first crop of foals are arriving this Spring.
