Widden Stud – Season in Review

The 2021/ 2022 Australian racing season has brought continuing success on the track and in the sale ring to Widden Stud and our clients with the addition of new stallions this year holding promise for the future.

One to Watch – Echuca

The half-sister by Zoustar to five-time Group I winning sprinter Santa Ana Lane made a winning debut at Echuca on Friday.

Juvenile Trial Watch – Gosford

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott sent a big team of horses to Gosford to trial on the grass on Friday morning including Sydney Cup winner Knight’s Order and a raft of rising three year-olds with three in particular that caught our eye.

Zoustar Filly Wins G3 Princess Margaret Stakes

Speedy Zoustar filly Lezoo was back in the winner’s circle overnight at Ascot capturing the Group III Princess Margaret Stakes (6f) as favourite.

Past Week's 2YO Trials

The big winter wet, particularly in NSW, has barely made a dent on the trial numbers with plenty of 2YO’s seen out, so here are all the results with breeding and sale data.

30th Stakes-Winner for Zoustar

Widden Stud’s flagship sire Zoustar posted his 30th lifetime stakes-winner on Saturday when the Peter Moody trained blue-blood colt He’s Heaven cast off maiden status with a Black Type win at just his second start.
