9/9/2019 First Win for Sunlight Sister

Stakes-placed earlier this year in Adelaide, three year-old Zoustar filly Sisstar was given an easy maiden assignment when resuming from a spell at Murray Bridge on Sunday and duly broke the ice with a resounding victory as a hot favourite.

A full sister to triple Group I winner Sunlight, Sisstar is also prepared by her trainer Tony McEvoy and showed a glimmer of her sister’s ability with this dominant nearly seven length win in the 1000 metre maiden.

A $600,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Widden Stud draft for McEvoy Mitchell Racing/David Redvers Bstock, Sisstar will no doubt head back to Melbourne now chasing some more Black Type this spring.

Sisstar is the fourth winner from Group III winner Solar Charged joining not only $4.3 million earner Sunlight , but also Group III placed Sheikha.

Widden Stud sold a Sebring colt from Solar Charged at Inglis Easter this year for $650,000 and she has a yearling colt to follow by Sunlight and Sisstar’s sire Zoustar.
