Prime Star became the China Horse Club’s second winner of a lucrative Inglis feature race this season when fending off all challenges to score in the $2,000,000 Inglis Millennium (1100m) at Sydney’s Warwick Farm racecourse.
The chestnut’s triumph followed on from the success of Wild Ruler in the $500,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m) in December while the Club also enjoyed success in the 2017 Inglis Nursery with Irish Bet.
“Inglis’ initiatives with these races is fantastic for racing and for owners at all levels,” said Michael Wallace, China Horse Club’s Director of Racing and Breeding. “We have new owners and established owners in Prime Star and today’s win has been electrifying. Prime Star has been well handled by the Freedmans [Michael and Richard Freedman] and he was given an exceptional ride from Tom Marquand. This is another thrill with Inglis.”
Prime Star became the ninth individual two-year-old winner for China Horse Club this season joining a possy of crack performers headed by Rulership, Dame Giselle, Aim and Wild Ruler. The former was narrowly touched out in the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude last weekend and remains on song for Melbourne’s flagship juvenile contest, the G1 Blue Diamond Stakes. The Golden Slipper is also within his sights as well as boom filly Dame Giselle and the Magic Millions favourite Aim.
Prime Star was a $55,000 purchase from the Inglis Classic Sale in 2019 and has repaid that figure 24 times over after only four race starts with current prize money of more than $1.2 million.
