Chris Waller said : "Everyone was happy to come back in, and we bought the Adelaide filly that is Funstar for $80,000. It is a good buy now. “A couple weeks later, Youngstar won a Newcastle maiden, and a couple of months later Chris was right: she was the Queensland Oaks winner. “It has been a pretty good family for us. We are having a bit of fun with them”. John Sheather continues to breed the family. A Pierro colt as arrived from Starspangled this year, and the mare has gone back to Adelaide. “I like that cross – a Galileo stallion over a Danehill – it works,” Sheather said. “We probably won’t be racing them as a syndicate from now on because our two girls have been so good, it makes the rest of the family expensive. “It would be nice if Funstar could get a group win and maybe a group 1 later on, and Youngstar has to be a chance to win another big one. Kerrin McEvoy returns on Youngstar after winning the Queensland Oaks. “She ran well in the Melbourne Cup last year [when sixth and the first Australian horse home]. That was a bit of dream”. The half-sisters stepped out on the same day at Randwick two weeks ago, when Funstar was a closing runner-up in benchmark company. Youngstar needed the outing when finishing midfield in the Chelmsford Stakes. Funstar steps up to group 2 company against Libertini in Saturday’s Tea Rose and Waller, who is always measured with his expectations, is looking forward to the challenge. “Don’t drop off her just because she got beat the other day. It was that bias day, where all the leaders, expect one, won. She ran a close second and she is quality,” he said. “She’s a promising filly. Her first-up run was excellent and obviously a step up against the better fillies. “What we have in our favour with her is, she has actually won on a heavy surface before at Randwick”. Funstar has been able to get to the track sooner than her sister, racing as a two-year-old. There are hopes she can live up to her group 1 resume. Funstar has bit more dash in her legs and is targeting the Flight Stakes in a fortnight as opposed to the High Chaparral mare, who is looking to towards the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups again via Saturday's Colgate Optic White Stakes (1600m) . “We had in the 2000m race as well but we didn’t want to run her over 2000m on the heavy track," External link

Chris Waller said : "Everyone was happy to come back in, and we bought the Adelaide filly that is Funstar for $80,000. It is a good buy now. “A couple weeks later, Youngstar won a Newcastle maiden, and a couple of months later Chris was right: she was the Queensland Oaks winner. “It has been a pretty good family for us. We are having a bit of fun with them”. John Sheather continues to breed the family. A Pierro colt as arrived from Starspangled this year, and the mare has gone back to Adelaide. “I like that cross – a Galileo stallion over a Danehill – it works,” Sheather said. “We probably won’t be racing them as a syndicate from now on because our two girls have been so good, it makes the rest of the family expensive. “It would be nice if Funstar could get a group win and maybe a group 1 later on, and Youngstar has to be a chance to win another big one. Kerrin McEvoy returns on Youngstar after winning the Queensland Oaks. “She ran well in the Melbourne Cup last year [when sixth and the first Australian horse home]. That was a bit of dream”. The half-sisters stepped out on the same day at Randwick two weeks ago, when Funstar was a closing runner-up in benchmark company. Youngstar needed the outing when finishing midfield in the Chelmsford Stakes. Funstar steps up to group 2 company against Libertini in Saturday’s Tea Rose and Waller, who is always measured with his expectations, is looking forward to the challenge. “Don’t drop off her just because she got beat the other day. It was that bias day, where all the leaders, expect one, won. She ran a close second and she is quality,” he said. “She’s a promising filly. Her first-up run was excellent and obviously a step up against the better fillies. “What we have in our favour with her is, she has actually won on a heavy surface before at Randwick”. Funstar has been able to get to the track sooner than her sister, racing as a two-year-old. There are hopes she can live up to her group 1 resume. Funstar has bit more dash in her legs and is targeting the Flight Stakes in a fortnight as opposed to the High Chaparral mare, who is looking to towards the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups again via Saturday's Colgate Optic White Stakes (1600m) . “We had in the 2000m race as well but we didn’t want to run her over 2000m on the heavy track," External link
