Choistar Wins Fernhill Handicap

Tuesday, 14th April 2009

Former star Australian sprinter & Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) added a juvenile black-type success when his colt Choistar (Choisir-Sveldte, by Star Watch) raced away for a 5-lengths victory in yesterday's $110,000 Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) for 2YOs at Randwick. Choistar (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Michael Flanigan) defeated favoured fellow colt Euphemism (Lonhro-Clonakilty, by Stravinsky) & the filly Smart Lady (Catbird-Lady Elaine, by Grosvenor). Choistar (a $67,500 yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale & subsequently passed-in when he failed to reach his $175,000 reserve at the Magic Millions National Horses-In-Training Sale) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 4 starts for $83,800 earnings.
