At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Widden Stud stallion and former 3YO champion Australian sprinter Zoustar (Northern Meteor-Zouzou, by Redoute's Choice) added a Group race success when 3YO Australian-bred colt Charge (Zoustar- Queen of the Falls, by General Nediym) claimed his first stakes victory with a determined all-the-way victory in the $150,000 Gr3 1300 Australia Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, defeating Sunset Watch & Ringerdingding. Raced by a syndicate headed by Qatar Bloodstock, Charge was purchased by David Redvers & Mulcaster Bloodstock for $450,000 at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Turangga Farm. Charge, whose 2nd and 3rd dams are the talented Group winning mares Niagara Falls and Bracken Bank respectively, improved his record to 2 wins and 4 placings (including the Listed ATC Heritage Stakes & Listed ATC Rosebud Handicap) from 9 starts for $194,935 in earnings.
