(Choisir-Sveldte, by Star Watch)
Stands 2017 at Cangon Stud, NSW, for $3,300
A winner on debut as a January 2YO, Choistar was then spelled before being sent from Queensland to Sydney where he won the Listed Fernhill Stakes. He had a crack at the Gr1 Champagne before going home to run second in the Doomben Slipper and fourth in the Gr1 TJ Smith Classic. Back as a 3YO, Choistar was set for the Magic Millions 3YO Trophy, and picked up a third in the Gr3 Vo Rogue Plate on the way (to eventual winner Graceful Anna and Gr1 winner Shoot Out). He was badly galloped on in the Magic Millions 3YO Trophy and retired.
Choistar’s oldest crop is rising four, and to date he has had only 20 runners – who have collectively won 12 races. It’s a strong early effort for a horse with only small crops. Of Choistar’s progeny, Stellar Knight shows plenty of promise as a city winner of three races up to 1300m this season. Tacamma Blue has also won three races, while Collywobble is a 2YO winner.
Choistar’s dam, Sveldte, won 12 races; something only very tough horses manage to do, and the line up of broodmare sires in this pedigree is top class. Her son Smooth Grove is stakes place, and her daughter has left group placed Open Book.
Choisir’s sire sons are still young, but Starspangledbanner is showing the way with Gr1 winner The Wow Signal, and Australian stakes winner Of The Brave among others. Choisir was inducted into Australia’s Racing Hall of Fame for his deeds as both a trendsetting racehorse and a very good sire.
Choistar is a great opportunity for breeders to tap into that success for a value price.
