China Horse Club and consigned on their behalf by Sledmere Stud, the star colt was purchased by Rosemont-Victorian Alliance/Suman Hedge Bloodstock (FBAA)/David Redvers Bloodstock and will be trained by Peter Moody, who also puts the polish on Brereton.

 

$1.3million Zoustar colt from Pirapala will be trained by Peter Moody.

He is the second foal of Pirapala, whose first foal, a colt by Russian Revolution made $160,000 at this sale last year when bought by Hawkes Racing and has been named Firebird Two.

Pirapala is a winning half-sister by Sepoy to Group I winner Instant Celebrity and this family has already had stakes success with Zoustar to produce Hong Kong Group III winner Healthy Happy.

Pirapala has a filly to follow by Russian Revolution and is in foal to Golden Slipper winner Farnan.
