Woodside Park Stud’s James Price is delighted to offer mare owners the opportunity to tap into these world-class bloodlines.
“You only have to watch his Emirates Stakes win, and hear the excitement resonating in Matt Hill voice say “Tosen Stardom drops from the sky”, to know that he is a serious, serious racehorse, and that you can expect the same success at stud.”
Champion trainer Darren Weir was instrumental in showcasing the entire’s immense talent, his signature late explosive surge and freakish turn of foot.
“Tosen Stardom has everything it takes to be one of the great stallions in this country, he’s got the pedigree, the ability and now he’s got the Group 1,” Weir said.
Supplementing his Group 1 victories in the Toorak Handicap and the Emirates Stakes, Tosen Stardom was a gallant runner-up in his Australian debut in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes, second in the Group 2 Blamey Stakes and the Group 1 Futurity Stakes and a close third in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes.
Retiring sound with considerable prize money of $3,342,526 and being the super-sire’s 31st individual Group 1 winner, Tosen Stardom is Deep Impact’s only dual Australian Group 1 winning son to stand at stud.
Deep Impact has won a staggering nine Japanese stallion premierships, including the General Sire premiership four times and has also been crowned Champion 2YO Sire five times.
“Tosen Stardom will be strongly supported by his owners, Northern Farm’s Mr Yoshida & Mr Shimakawa, Australian Bloodstock and Woodside Park Stud. He will have every opportunity with the best performed and proven producing mares to hit the ground running with a brilliant first crop of foals,” Price said.
Tosen Stardom is out of the proven producer, Admire Kirameki, a four-time winning daughter of End Sweep (USA), and half-sister to the Group 1 winner and Group 1 Japan Cup runner-up Tosen Jordon and the Group 2 winner Tosen Homareboshi.
Joining Victoria’s Champion Sire, Written Tycoon, Invincible Spirit’s highest rated two-year-old, Cable Bay and Written Tycoon’s fastest son at stud, Rich Enuff, Tosen Stardom will head to the breeding barn for an exciting future at stud.
