Sydney consolation for Star of the Seas

The Chris Waller-trained Star Of The Seas (NZ) (Ocean Park) made up for missing a start in the Stradbroke with a win in the Racing to Win Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.

The four-year-old gelding has been a model of consistency having record four wins and four placings from eight starts this preparation and never running out of the money in his 13 career starts.

“He’s had a fantastic preparation,” Waller’s racing manager Charlie Duckworth said.

“He was balloted out of the Stradbroke so he came here instead.

“He’s just a beautiful horse and jumps and travels and just wants to please.”

Star Of The Seas gave his jockey Jay Ford a double for the Waller stable after his earlier win on two-year-old Catwalk.

Star of the Seas was bred by Trelawney Stud and sold off the back of a trial win in New Zealand when prepared by Clayton Chipperfield.
