Metro Winner for Stratum Star

Tara Madgwick - Saturday December 10

Widden Stud’s value sire Stratum Star has a growing list of winners and among them is progressive mare Edna, who made it back-to-back wins at Canterbury when scoring on Friday evening.

Trained by Craig Carmody and ridden by Kathy O’Hara, Edna posted an easy length and a half win in the Benchmark 72 event over 1100m.

Edna has done nothing but improve this preparation and has won three of her past four starts with her overall record now three wins and four placings from 10 starts with prizemoney just shy of $100,000.


Retained to race in partnership by her breeder Kim Harding, Edna is the second winner from Dame Elisabeth, a half-sister by Elusive Quality (USA) to stakes-winner Tommifrancs.

Dame Elisabeth has foaled this spring to another of the Widden sires producing a colt by Supido.

Stratum Star

A dual Group I winning son of Stratum, Stratum Star has had 18 winners this season from just 47 runners so is doing a good job for his supporters.

Stratum Star stands at the value fee of $5,500.
