There are not many current broodmares around like Highland Starlight who are granddaughters of Northern Dancer, one of the most influential stallions in racing history.
Her sire is USA stallion Dixieland Band who sired well over 100 stakes winners and was the dam-sire of two Kentucky Derby winners in Monarchos and Street Sense. Starlight's dam is black type broodmare Fran's Flash who has had five winners from six runners to date.
Highland Starlight has also been successful so far in her own breeding career with two winners from four runners, including Digital Pioneer (by Dutch Art) who raced in Hong Kong.
She has a three-year-old gelding by Lethal Force called Viscount Wilson who sold at the Goresbridge breeze up sales in 2017 for €25,000 and has been placed several times with Ger Lyons in Ireland before moving on to Gordon Elliot.
She also has a two-year-old colt by Mayson who sold for £52,000 at Goffs April 2018 Breeze Up Sale. She has subsequently foaled a lovely filly by Garswood in February 2018, who is being retained, and is now in foal to Outstrip on her first cover.
Highland Starlight is a good-natured, healthy mare who can be viewed at Manor House Farm Stud in Marsworth, near Tring HP24 4LN (on the Bucks/Herts border). Please contact Mandy Rawding at the stud to arrange a viewing and/or find out more about Highland Starlight on 01296 668461 or 07960 053287.
