Hello Kingstar Racing Club and welcome to a very exciting week of racing! It has been very busy with our I Am A Star Ownerforaday competition and we are very excited to announce the two winners. Congratulations to Geoff Stoyles of Gerringong NSW and Kristopher Di Salvo of Edmonton QLD.
Geoff and Kristopher will be receiving the Ownerforaday experience of I am A Star when she races this Saturday in the G1 Empire Rose Stakes – Race 6 #1 at Flemington.
I Am A Star was not only the first 3 year old to win the race in 2016, but now has the chance to be the first to win a second edition. With a great draw of barrier 3 and Ben Melham on board again, our Ownerforaday winners are in for an exciting day indeed. Trainer Shane Nicholas tells us “All in great order. Wouldn’t swap her for any other runner.”
I have loved talking to members this week and also receiving feedback regarding our club, especially our TV adverts. One of the great benefits of membership is access to owners tickets that unlock the ‘inside the ropes experience’, including the mounting yard – and if you happen to be in Melbourne for the Spring Carnival please email me at email@example.com as we have a few ticket opportunities on Cup Day.
Into the Abyss didn’t get a clear run at Moonee Valley last weekend and Dyslexic didn’t go on the heavy track at Randwick. I will provide a more detailed update on Monday.
We have interest in a couple of runners at Rosehill this Saturday. Jonah, a 2 year old colt out of Hinchinbrook will be in race 1. He goes very well but will need to beat the favourite Time Foe Reign. Rock The World, a 3 year old filly out of Fastnet Rock is in race 3. She has been a solid performer this season with 1st position in 3 of her last 3 races.
Kingstar Farm was highlighted this week on Bred to Win, hosted by our own ambassador Caroline Searcy. As part of our event calendar a tour will be organised in 2019 coinciding with breeding season and other studs’ stallion parades in the Hunter Valley. This will be a brilliant opportunity to see the inner workings of the stud life, meet our farm manager Adam Cook (the star of our farm videos), as well as the perfect excuse to experience the beautiful Hunter Valley.
There has been a lot of feedback from members regarding events, especially outside of Melbourne and Sydney. I have committed to events in Adelaide and Brisbane during carnivals and we will have a presence at all major yearling sales. Please contact me with any suggestions or feedback for events, Jason Cornell: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure to keep up with the racing and breeding progress via our app. It keeps track of all of our horses through regular updates and video and will only get better as our 2 year old’s progress to the track.
This is only the beginning! Let’s go I am A Star!
