Latest News

First European Stakes-Winner for Zoustar

Widden Stud’s champion sire Zoustar has his first Northern Hemisphere bred stakes-winner with speedy filly Lezoo making it two wins in as many starts when taking out the Listed Newmarket Empress Stakes (6f).

Past Week's 2YO Trials

The later season 2YO trials are always interesting and there’s been a big turnout in the past week, so here are all the results with breeding and sale data.

Zoustar Appeal Continues to Rise

Widden Stud’s champion sire Zoustar achieved a special sale ring feat this year in siring not only the most expensive yearling sold in Australia in 2022, but also the most expensive weanling, so we thought an in depth look at his 2021 book of mares would be interesting given his fee this year has increased to $198,000.

Debut UK Winner for Zoustar

In the same week Zoustar posted his first Northern Hemisphere winner, he also got his second with promising filly Lezoo scoring on debut at Bath on Saturday.

One to Watch – Dubbo

The $40,000 Silver Goblet (1110m) at Dubbo on Friday was won in dazzling style by a two year-old Zoustar gelding that looms as a pinup success story for Inglis Digital.

First Northern Hemisphere Winner for Zoustar

Widden Stud’s Zoustar has been shuttling to the Tweenhills Stud in the UK for the past few years and sired his first Northern Hemisphere bred winner overnight at Wetherby when Just Janet saluted.
