Starspangledbanner 2YO Flies Sire's Flag
Rosemont Stud’s shuttler Starspangledbanner (Choisir-Gold Anthem, by Made of Gold) is responsible for yet another Group winner in Ireland. The Gr1 Caulfield Guineas winner, who returned at four to win the Gr1 Oakleigh Plate as well as England’s Gr1 Golden Jubilee and Gr1 King’s Stand Stakes, added a fifth individual 2YO Group winner in Ireland when Aloha Star landed the Gr2 Airlie Stud Stakes at The Curragh. The flashy chestnut is also the sire of Gr1 juvenile winners The Wow Signal and Millisle – the latter crowned European, GB & Ireland Champion 2YO Filly last season (see below). Their popular sire, now responsible for 14 stakes-winners overall, has improved his fertility rate dramatically in recent years. He is standing the 2020 season at Rosemont for $19,800 inc GST.
