The Sire: STAR WITNESS
A son of STARCRAFT, Star Witness was a brilliant performer on the track. He won his first three race starts.
At the age of three he returned to compete at the highest level, winning the stallion-making Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (3yo) at Flemington, He then placed second against older horses in the Group 1 VRC Patinack Classic (now the Darley Classic).
At Widden Stud he has been an equally impressive sire, with more than 200 winners recorded including GLOBAL GLAMOUR (G1 ATC Flight S.), START TURN and GRAFF.
The Dam: CHARGE AT DAWN
An unraced daughter of very good sire and broodmare sire CHARGE FORWARD, Charge At Dawn is a half-sister to South African stakes-winner LORD BALMORAL.
An added benefit is that Lord Balmoral himself is by Star Witness, so we have faith that this family nicks well with the sire.
Charge At Dawn is a descendent of top Irish 2yo WELSH GARDEN. She is the matriarch of 34 stakes-winners at an outstanding rate of almost 9% of runners. This is a strong global family.
