Starspangledbanner Colt Quickens Clear On Debut

The Rosstafarian (2c Starspangledbanner - Via Lattea, by Teofilo) shaped like an exciting prospect when making an impressive debut at Salisbury on Thursday.

Racing in midfield for much of the mile novice stakes, the Hugo Palmer-trained bay made headway from the two furlong marker and soon led under James Doyle. Racing clear, he scored by four and a quarter lengths in comfortable fashion.

Owned by Middleham Park Racing, The Rosstafarian was bred by Haras Du Mezeray out of a winning half-sister to Group 3 Irish 1,000 Guineas Trial runner-up What Style.
