Equinox Racing is delighted to offer
5% shares in the unraced three-year-old Nathaniel
filly Samstar. She is in training with Britain's
winning-most trainer Mark Johnston from his
Middleham base, and she will be ready to run at the start of the
2019 turf season.
Samstar boasts an impressive pedigree, as a daughter of the Choisir mare Gossamer Seed. She was a very smart performer, winning on the second of two starts as a juvenile over five-furlongs and adding a six-furlong handicap at three. She improved out of all recognition as a four-year-old, winning the Grp-3 Athasi Stakes over seven-furlongs by four lengths and placing on two further occasions in Stakes company.
It is also worth noting Choisir's developing prowess in the broodmare sire division, with his mares having produced the Grp-1 winners Winter, Persuasive and My Dream Boat in recent seasons.
Samstar's sire Nathaniel was a tremendous racehorse, winning
almost £1.5 million in prize money during a storied career that
featured Grp-1 victories in the Eclipse and King George. He was a
persistent and stubborn rival to Frankel, getting
closer to the legendary Champion than any other horse subsequently
when a half-length second to him on debut, and he also ran a
close-up third to him in the Grp-1 Champion Stakes.
Nathaniel has gone on to even greater success as a stallion, with his first three crops of racing age featuring the incomparable dual Arc winner Enable, who has already earned north of £8 million, amongst numerous other high-class progeny.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully-bred filly with first class prospects, at an extremely affordable price. Samstar has a profile that indicates she has every chance of a successful career on the track, but she also boasts superb breeding potential further down the line.
As well as the purchase price, there is a monthly fee of £150.00 per 5% share which covers training fees, vet bills, insurance, raceday expenses etc. Ownership of any horse with Equinox Racing entitles you to have the owner's experience with any of our 10 club horses.
