Sire: Star Turn

Colour: Bay

Dam: Lonhrolite

Sex: Colt

Age: 4

Foaled: Sep 28, 2019

Country: Australia


This colt was purchased from the Adelaide Magic Millions. Sired by Star Turn, he is a son of Star Witness.

Star Turn certainly excelled on the track as a 3yo. However in what was a year of stellar crop of colts, Star Turn drew first blood as a Spring 2yo in the Pierro Plate at Randwick before a 2nd to Flying Artie in the Blue Diamond Prelude in the Autumn. His only unplaced runs in a 12 start career were 5th and 6th in Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper respectively.

It’s not surprising that he was a pre-Christmas juvenile winner given his precocious pedigree. He is by Gr1 Blue Diamond winning Star Witness, who won 3 of his 4 2yo starts and is from 5-time Stakes winning sprinter Golden Delicious.

As a 3yo Star Turn returned for a Spring campaign with a dominant victory over Golden Slipper winner Capitalist in the San Domenico Stakes Gr.3 and was then sent to Melbourne, where he produced another brilliant burst of acceleration to win the WFA Gr.2 Schillaci Stakes against older horses (Malaguerra, Fell Swoop). He signed off with a credible third in the Gr.1 Coolmore Stud Stakes. Trainer John Hawkes put the result into perspective. “Give us the winner’s run and we win. Simple as that.”


Out of the Lonhro broodmare Lonhrolite, it is worth mentioning the Lonhro is fast becoming a broodmare sire in Australia. He currently sits in 10th position on the top 20 of Leading Australian Broodmare Sires. Lonhrolite is out of the Black Type performing mare Spectrolite.

The colt completed his education process at John Ledger’s in Wangaratta on April 14 and is now spelling. He will spell for 6 weeks before beginning pre training.



The colt was purchased for $50,000 in partnership with Suman Hedge Bloodstock. Ownership opportunities includes purchase price, transport from the sales, vetting (including scope, x-ray inspections and clinical exam), twelve month mortality insurance, emergency surgery cover, three months of agistment, photos/video, Magic Millions Race Series, Bio Data commission and GST.
