Purchased for A$1m in January at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale by Rosemont Stud, Qatar Bloodstock’s David Redvers and Suman Hedge Bloodstock, two-year-old Zoustar colt Brereton improved from his narrow second placing in the Listed Debutant Stakes on October 9 at Caulfield, to win the G3 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m), the opening race on Melbourne Cup Day.

Ridden by Like Nolen of Black Caviar fame, the leading jockey who was winning the race for the third consecutive time, was suitably impressed with the Peter Moody-trained colt.

“When I put one behind the saddle he showed good courage and tenacity,” Nolen said. “For an inexperienced horse you’re buoyed when they show those sorts of things.

“He’s got it all in front of him I feel and he’s done a good job today.”

A full-brother to the Ridgemont Highlands raced Boomps A Daisy, who has retired recently to stud this season as the winner of four races, the talented race mare is one of an exciting array of mares owned by the leading stud farm to join the broodmare band this season. In her first season at stud, the multiple winning mare has been covered by Ridgemont Highlands’ resident sire Rafeef, the G1-winning, leading freshman sire of his year.

Four Time Winner Boomps A Daisy (Zoustar – Fuddle Dee Duddle)

Purchased in Australia at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale for $360,000, Boomps A Daisy won or placed in ten of her 17 starts for trainer Brett Crawford.

Out of the G3-winning Red Ransom mare Fuddle Dee Duddle, who is a half-sister to the G2-winning, G1 placed Hallowell Belle (Starcraft), it is clearly a family on the move in Australia with not only Brereton adding a black type success, but in recent weeks Pride of Dubai’s daughter Bella Nipotina, who is out of Hallowell Belle, has recorded G3 success as well as a narrow second in the G1 Manikato Stakes when last time and has been nominated for G1 Darley Sprint Classic on the final day of the Flemington Spring carnival.
