Startreusse impresses at Randwick

Even as the 2010/11 season enters its final stages, Australasia’s leading 2nd crop sire of stakeswinners Starcraft is maintaining his momentum with regular infusions of fresh talent.

Today at Randwick his 2YO son Startreusse was ridden by New Zealand apprentice Jason Collett to an easy two-length victory over 1200 metres, his second win in two starts from the Chris Waller stable.

Startreusse was recently purchased by the Ingham family from BC3 Thoroughbreds which secured him for $100,000 from the Princes Farm draft at the 2010 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

Startreusse is from the first crop of foals bred on their own account by the Khaw family’s Suez Thoroughbreds whose manager Su-Ann Khaw was delighted with his performance, especially as his dam Shantreusse (by Danehill) is in foal to Starcraft. Danehill-line mares have also produced dual G1 winner Star Witness, G3 winner Do You Think, stakeswinner Ain’tnofallenstar and stakes-placed Ace Acosta when sent to Starcraft.

Starcraft has been represented by seven individual stakeswinners this season and stands at a 2011 service fee of $44,000 inc. GST.
