Trainer: Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott
EXTREMELY EARLY TYPE COMPLETED A FULL PREPARATION AT GAI WATERHOUSE AND ADRIAN BOTTS STABLES
This is one impressive looking colt, purchased from the well regarded Raheen Stud at the Magic Million Gold Coast. We could not believe our luck in securing him for such outstanding value. He was also rated highly by well-regarded bloodstock agent, Sheamus Mills. Above all he was personally selected by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.
Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott (trainer) comments: Gai and I are excited to secure the Zoustar colt in partnership with Blueblood. It’s a sale that we have had great success with securing precocious and forward types of horses. Just like Unite And Conquer was very successful for us at the Wyong Magic Millions Listed race. This is also a particular colt that I can see us getting back to those races. A nice raw forward individual. Very well built, strong forward type as I said. I love the way that he carries himself, and used himself. Very athletic type of horse and I also very much look forward to training him for Blueblood.
Sheamus Mills (bloodstock agent) comments: here we are with a smooth moving Zoustar colt. He’s out of a Redoute’s Choice mare, no better broodmare sire in the country, by a top, top stallion in Zoustar. The thing that really grabbed me about this horse is his movement. He’s above all a lovely moving horse, lovely masculine head, plenty of depth of girth, he really uses his hind quarter. I think he’s a really nice prospect.
David Mourad (BBT Racing Manager) comments: another lovely colt by Zoustar, chestnut colt out of the metropolitan mare, Meadow. Bought him in partnership with Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott. A colt that was high on their list. Our bloodstock agent, Sheamus Mills also quite liked the horse. Very neat type, good knees, knitted up in the knees, good sign of an early runner. I think he’s going to continue to furnish, what you see now is not the finished product. He’s got a lot of spunk about him. Spunky walk and good signs for an early running 2YO.
Our Zoustar colt is back in pre-training at Doran Park with Gordan Pratt after completing a full preparation at Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Botts Randwick stables.
This colt is closely related to 8 individual stakes winners. He also has a Goldmine rating of 20/20. There are 13 Individual Group 1 winners bred on the same pattern including, SUNLIGHT, ENGLISH and MANHATTAN RAIN.
Our Zoustar colt has passed 100% clean on his scope, x-ray and clinical examination.
ZOUSTAR is from Australia’s two dominant stallions of the past decade, ENCOSTA DE LAGO and REDOUTE’S CHOICE which combine in the pedigree of this brilliant sprinter.

Consequently the only horse to win the Group 1 Golden Rose / Coolmore Stakes double.
“He was that good, I could of prepared him for the Golden Slipper however given I thought he was bred to be at his best at Three we were happy to wait. What he did achieve at Two was just a glimpse of his natural ability. An equine machine.” Chris Waller.

Trainers: GAI WATERHOUSE AND ADRIAN BOTT
Gai has gone on to achieve as much as humanly possible with racehorses. While many would rest on their laurels after such success, Gai simply wants to win more and more. Owners can rest assured that the Lady Trainer wants to win races just as much if not more than they do! Confirmation of this dedication to excellence came after just fifteen years of training when Gai was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame (2007). As we stand, in just over 20 years of training, Gai has amassed over 135 Group One wins and currently sits third on the all-time list (Group One winners) behind T.J. Smith and Bart Cummings.
By far Gai’s greatest achievements have been recorded in the best races of the year in both Melbourne and Sydney. Gai has also won Sydney’s two best races, the Golden Slipper and Doncaster Handicap six and seven times respectively. Gai is by far the most successful trainer ever in the Sydney Spring. ‘Make hay while the sun shines’ is a phrase one often can hear Gai quoting. This attitude is reflected by Gai’s results in the best races contested during the Sydney Spring Carnival. The Flight Stakes (7 wins), the Epsom Handicap (7 wins) and the Metropolitan Handicap (8 wins) have become races at the mercy of Gai each and every year.
Above all Gai will gives each and every horse that comes into her care every possible chance to succeed. Only six horses in the history of Sydney racing have won the two-year-old Triple Crown and Gai has trained two of them (Dance Hero 2004 and Pierro 2012). Gai in fact has won more Group One races for two-year-olds than any other trainer.
