A Top Night for ZOUSTAR as TOP KNIGHT Wins Gr2 and Records 8th Stakes Winner

06 May 19

There is little doubt that sensational young sire ZOUSTAR will continue to be one of the hottest sires in the world for years to come and his jump in service fee from $44,000 in 2017 up to $154,000 in 2019 is well justified when you watch the win of yet another of his sensational young 3yo sprinters in TOP KNIGHT produces an awesome display when coming wide from the tail of the field, against the best 3yo’s in Singapore to claim Friday night’s prestigious Gr2 Singapore Classic over 1400m.

With ZOUSTAR going so well and all Owners want to RACE THE BEST - WITH THE BEST Dynamic Syndications are delighted with our decision earlier this year at the Magic Millions to purchase two fantastic fillies by this young super sire and both fillies were out of Stakes Winning / Gr1 placed mares.


The filly by ZOUSTAR x MOONFLUTE we went to market with straight after the sale and it was sold out in a matter of days at $12,885 per 5% share.

ZOUSTAR x MOON DE FRENCH Filly Owned with Newgate Farm & Trained by Gai & Adrian

5% Share = $12,885

The second filly by ZOUSTAR x MOON DE FRENCH is being trained by GAI WATERHOUSE and ADRIAN BOTT and raced in co-ownership with NEWGATE FARM. We deliberately chose to withhold this filly until later in the year.

This filly is as exciting as they come and is displaying the same traits as these top class ZOUSTAR progeny have shown.

FACT: Going forward, most owners will find it difficult to afford buying shares in any ZOUSTAR progeny.

We purchased our fillies off a service fee when conceived of $44,000.

Then in 2018 his fee was increased to $60,500 (up 37.5%) and now, for 2019 his fee is set at $154,000 (up 350% from his $44,000 starting service fee).

As the cost of production increases so will the cost of the resultant yearlings.

So now is the time to buy a ZOUSTAR whilst it’s affordable to do so, before the yearling prices skyrocket in 2020 and beyond.

ZOUSTAR progeny will undoubtedly head in the same way as Snitzel and I Am Invincible where they are now out priced for most buyers.

Don’t miss out on this super filly we have available.

Apart from having one of the leading thoroughbred nurseries in Australia in the co-ownership with you, she will have excellent residual value upon racetrack retirement as a broodmare prospect and she will be trained by Australia’s first Ladies of Racing - Gai Waterhouse.
