Tara Madgwick - Monday November 11

Exciting Australian sire Zoustar will head the roster at Tweenhills Stud in Gloucestershire next year when he makes his second shuttle trip from Widden Stud to the northern hemisphere.

ZoustarZoustar will stand at a fee of £30,000, up from £25,000 in 2019 when he covered 149 mares.

A multiple Group I winning son on Northern Meteor, Zoustar is currently in sixth place in the leading general sires list in Australia having sired the winners of over $5.5 million in prizemoney. His six stakes winners this season is the equal best of all sires, an honour shared with Coolmore’s Pierro.

His first three crops have produced 10 stakes winners headed by three-time Group I sprint heroine Sunlight, a winner of $6.5 million and her Group III winning full relation Sisstar, also Group II winners Haut Brion Her, Lean Mean Machine, Mizzy, Zousain and Zoutori.

Zoustar got plenty of quality in his first book of mares at Tweenhills including high-class racemares La Collina and Temida and the dams of Group 1-placed two-year-olds Golden Horde and Tropbeau.

Currently standing at Widden at a fee of $154,000, Zoustar will cover a strictly limited book of 125 mares in 2020.
