Nova Star Wins QTC Cup

Monday, 4th June 2007

Ill-fated Oaklands Stud sire Iglesia (Last Tycoon-Yodells, by Marscay) added a group success when 4YO mare Nova Star (Iglesia-Filnova, by Luskin Star) stormed home from mid-field to grab a half-length victory in the $150,000 Gr2 QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm. Nova Star (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Kelly Schweida) defeated front-running 4YO gelding Rasmusen (Flying Spur-Fleureel, by Zabeel) & favoured 5YO entire Son Of Dane (Danewin-Dalmaara, by Almaarad). Nova Star (a $13,500 yearling consigned from Oaklands Stud at the 2004 Magic Millions Summer Sale) now has 6 wins (also including last month's Listed Silk Stocking over 1200m at the Gold Coast, plus 2006's Gr2 Queensland Guineas over 1600m at Eagle Farm) & 4 placings (including 2006's Listed Daybreak Lover over 1400m) from 26 starts for $544,800 earnings.
