Star of the Seas (Ocean Park x Stella Livia) continued his fine career record notching up his fifth win when successful in the Jim Cassidy Hall of Fame Handicap (1500m) at Rosehill on Saturday.
The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old travelled at the rear of the field before lengthening down the straight and hitting the front to win by .2L.
“He is just a total professional,” jockey Robbie Dolan said. “He is a dream horse to ride. He does
everything right and gives you everything he has.”
Star of the Seas has run in the money in each of his 11 starts.
The Trelawney Stud-bred gelding was destined for the sales as a yearling before the Cambridge based farm were forced to withdraw him due to issues on his pre-sale x-rays. He was sold off the back of a trial win when prepared by Clayton Chipperfield through bloodstock agent Phil Cataldo to Sydney based Tony Muollo.
He is the fourth foal for Titus Livius mare Stella Livia. She is the dam of five foals to race for five winners including Group One performer Spieth.
