Dee Stakes Winner Star Of India Sold To Australia


Harry Eustace: will train Star Of India before he travels to Australia | Sarah Andrew

Star Of India (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who won the Listed Dee S. at Chester for Aidan O'Brien before disappointing in the G1 Cazoo Derby, has been snapped up by leading Australian trainer Annabel Neasham.

But before Star Of India travels to Australia, he will continue his campaign in Britain, where he will be trained by Royal Ascot-winning handler Harry Eustace.

Eustace said, “He has been bought by an ownership group to head to Annabel Neasham in Australia and the plan is to run him up here before entering quarantine to go to either Melbourne or Sydney.”

He added, “There's no pressure for me to run him, but if I'm happy with him he's good to run. We'll take a bit of time with him and get to know him and there's a couple of options at either Windsor or in France later in the season.

“There's a mile-and-a quarter Group 3 at Windsor [Winter Hill S. on Aug. 27] and there is the [G3] Prix du Prince d'Orange [ParisLongchamp on Sept. 4], a 3-year-old-only 12-furlong Group 3.”
