This colt has all the power, strength and athleticism to be a leading 2YO for the stable
By one the most brilliant juvenile and three year old colts of his generation in Dual Group 1 winner ZOUSTAR. He was secured off the same farm that bred and sold this year's Magic Millions 2yo winner HOUTZEN!
This colt is MAGIC MILLIONS, BLUE DIAMOND & GOLDEN SLIPPER eligible and he was the team's highest rated son of ZOUSTAR from this year's Sales!
Muscle On Muscle - you won't find a more impressive 2-year-old this season!!
"Zoustar has really stamped his progeny. He was a brilliant racehorse, he was fast and immensely talented and his yearlings have been very popular. This colt is a quality young colt, he's very athletic and a smart type who's moves very well and is strong and well grown for a first foal. He's an early foal and he's got all the qualities I look for - he's the type to get up and go. I like this colt a lot!" said trainer Tony McEvoy who joins the FLR team in 2017.
ZOUSTAR is Champion sire Northern Meteor’s greatest son and he was explosive on the racetrack! He was a brilliant juvenile and won the Group 2 Sires Produce Stakes before a fast finishing close second in the Group 1 JJ Atkins Stakes in his two year old year before he became the first horse to win the stallion making Group 1 double of the Golden Rose and Coolmore Stud Stakes as a Spring three year old.

With Stakes winners all the way down the page, FLR's Zoustar colt also carries beautiful, international "blue" blood on his Dam-side being out of the 2 time winning & Stakes performed European sprinting mare SWOONING who also descends from multiple stakes winners and producers Rosa Parks (by Sadler's Wells) and Free At Last (by Shirley Heights).
Like father (left) like son (right)! FLR's ZOUSTAR colt inherits plenty of strength and athleticism off his superSTAR Sire!
"We were particularly impressed with the quality of yearling Zoustar has produced in his first crop. His sire Northern Meteor was a Champion sire and has given us Group 1 winners Shooting To Win, Amanpour, Cosmic Endeavour and Speak Fondly, multiple Stakes winners Romantic Touch, Deep Field, Eurozone, Fighting Sun plus many, many more and he certainly has all the makings to follow in his sire’s footsteps" said FLR's Tim Wilson.

"FLR's Zoustar colt has an air of quality about him. By a dual Group 1 winner out of a Stakes Performed mare, he looks every bit a runner and is one of the best moving colts we have seen. He has a huge overstep, is light on his feet, has an athletic frame and lots of scope. He's a very early foal and we identified him as an early running prospect however like the best of the Northern Meteor breed, they only continue to improve with time and he's a really exciting racing prospect with 'King Of The Kids' trainer Tony McEvoy".
Zoustar has proved extremely popular with his first yearlings averaging $265,156 at the Magic Millions sales and we're thrilled to have secured this colt who looks great value at $14,915 per 5% share inclusive of all costs until 31 January 2018 (including Magic Millions Race Series & 12 months Insurance).
