Huge Weekend for Ain'tnofallenstar

Mark Smith - Sunday October 11

It’s been some weekend for the Starcraft mare Ain'tnofallenstar after her Dundeel three-year-old Ain'tnodeeldun opened his stakes account at Morphettville on Saturday before her Snitzel four-year-old Mighty Valour romped to a three lengths win over 1200m at Sha Tin on Sunday.

The Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained Ain'tnodeeldun was sent of favourite for Saturday’s SAJC Hill Smith Stakes (1800m) on the strength of a 5-length demolition maiden win at Sale.

Ridden by Dominic Tourneur, Ain'tnodeeldun held the challenge of the Dundeel filly Victoria Quay by three-quarter of a length with the Spill The Beans filly Passing Phase two lengths back in third.

Purchase by Anthony Freedman Racing / Blue Sky Bloodstock Pty Ltd (FBAA) for $240,000 at the 2019 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling, Ain'tnodeeldun is the third foal of Ain'tnofallenstar who was herself a dual Listed stakes-winner.

Ain'tnodeeldun becomes the 11th stakes-winner for Dundeel.

He is the sixth foal and Mighty Valour the fifth foal of Ain'tnofallenstar.

A $325,000 by trainer Ricky Yiu from the Glentree Thoroughbreds draft at the 2018 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, Mighty Valor was in a race of his own in a class four over 1200m at Sha Tin.

It was his second win in nine starts.

Owned by Glentree Pastoral, Ain'Tnofallenstar has a yearling colt by Redoute’s Choice, one of 23 live foals from the final crop of the Arrowfield champion, and on September 23 foaled another colt by Dundeel.
