A half-share is offered for sale in the extremely progressive Casamento gelding Estrela Star. Trained by Ali and Sam Stronge at the picturesque Castle Piece Stables (pictured in the gallery above) in Berkshire, he has won his last three starts by a combined margin of 14 lengths.
The 50% share available is priced at £20,000 + VAT - to include training fees to 1st March 2020 (50% of bills apply thereafter).
Estrela Star is an unexposed young stayer and a hugely exciting dual-purpose prospect for this season and beyond. This strong and athletic four-year-old is a most progressive individual, reaching the frame on three consecutive outings between November and January, before impressing on just his second start over two miles at Kempton Park in early February. On that occasion he came home clear to win by three lengths in a very competitive contest.
Just a week later, he posted another career-best effort when running away with a 1m6f handicap at Chelmsford in the style of a very well-handicapped horse indeed. That win was followed by an even more impressive display back over two miles at Lingfield, where he defied a double penalty in devastatingly impressive fashion.
Looking ahead, his trainer is very confident that he can transfer his improvement to the turf in the spring/summer, particularly given this third foal is a half-brother to the very progressive stayer Protected Guest, whose Racing Post Rating improved from 74 as a two-year-old to 104 at the end of his four-year-old campaign.
Their dam was herself a useful stayer, reaching a Racing Post Rating of 92 when runner-up in class 3 company at York, while she is a half-sister to two useful performers with RPRs of 94 and 96.
Both Estrela Star's sire Casamento and damsire Green Tune have produced lots of winning jumpers and, having already been schooled over hurdles, that is another option that he could pursue in the year ahead.
