Strong filly by Australian Derby winner STARCRAFT - FOR LEASE

Nov 16, 2020

A five time Group 1 winner across 4 countries and dual Group 1 winner in both hemispheres, STARCRAFT is an impressive chestnut stallion who secured his place in history when he won the time-honoured Group 1 Australian Derby, beating the likes of ELVSTROEM, DELZAO and NIELLO. Crowned Australia and New Zealand’s Champion 3YO of 2003, STARCRAFT was a versatile racehorse, winning from 1400m to 2400m who has stamped his progeny and continues to produce consistent winners.

STARCRAFT is now the Sire of 334 Winners including 20 Stakes winners. His most prominent son is the brilliant Blue Diamond Stakes Winner and now successful sire STAR WITNESS. Also proven to be a versatile stallion, siring winners from 1100m to 2400m, STAR WITNESS’ most decorated daughter is GLOBAL GLAMOUR (ATC Flight S. [G1]; MRC 1000 Guineas [G1]).
However, whilst focus often rests on STARCRAFT
’s sons, six of the best of his Stakes winners are fillies including his brilliant dual Group 1 winner WE CAN SAY IT NOW.

SPRING SPIRIT, the dam of this filly, was a Group winner (La Plata Clasico Arturo A Bullrich [G3]) in Argentina, and winner of a total of 8 races. At stud she has produced stakes-placed Trophies (Newcastle JC Spring S. [G3]) and a city winner in Earnest Desire amongst her four winners.

Winning second dam Springly has also produced four winners including G3 winner SPRANG whilst third dam Spring Light is the dam of 3 Group 1 winners including Champion 2YO & 3YO Filly in Argentina SOUTHERN SPRING amongst her 9 winners at stud.
