TDN Rising Star for Fastnet Rock
Exciting prospect Star Devine (3f Fastnet Rock x Stars at Night, by Galileo) caught the eye of all the good judges when scoring an impressive debut win at Aqueduct earning TDN Rising Star status.
A three year-old filly that was purchased from the 2019 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale for 200,000 guineas, the Jorge Abreu trained filly powered home to win the six furlong maiden on turf at Aqueduct by a length and a half running away.
Star Devine is the first winner from Stars at Night, a winning half-sister by Galileo to Champion 3YO Filly and triple Group I winner Blue Bunting.
Star Devine has a two year-old full brother and yearling full sister so her breeders will be hoping she can go on to Black Type success.
The Fastnet Rock x Galileo cross is an outstanding one that has produced 20 stakes-winners from 89 runners at 22% stakes-winners to runners, those stakes-winners including eight Group I winners!
A perennial favourite with yearling buyers, Fastnet Rock had 14 yearlings average $440,000 at Inglis Easter earlier this week with his best result a filly from Group I winner Rostova that made $1.1million. A full-sister to Group II winner Anaheed, she was bought by James Harron Bloodstock.
