2YO Group winner highlights Arrowfield sires


2YO Group winner highlights Arrowfield sires

Not one, but three Arrowfield stallions were touched by the success of the Racetree-bred 2YO colt Zoustar in last weekend’s BRC Sires’ Produce S. G2.

Firstly, he’s by Northern Meteor, whose half-sister Comical Smile is the dam of sensational colt Smart Missile, who is proving as popular with breeders this year as in 2012.

Secondly, Northern Meteor is a son of Encosta de Lago – like 2YO Group 1 winner Manhattan Rain whose first crop yearlings sold up to $260,000 and will appear as 2YOs next season.

And finally, Zoustar’s dam Zouzou is a winning daughter of champion sire Redoute’s Choice. Still building his own record and already well-established as a sire of sires, Redoute’s Choice has made significant progress as a broodmare sire this season, with 8 stakeswinners and $5.5 million prizemoney in Australia.

Zoustar, unbeaten in 3 starts from the Chris Waller stable, now has a chance to become the second Group 1 winner, after Sacred Falls, from a Redoute’s Choice mare. That will come in the $400,000 J.J. Atkins over 1600 metres at Eagle Farm on 8 June.
