Octagonal 3yo Stars At Scone

The Dream Of Owner Leanne Moore Became A Reality At Scone On Friday When Star Of Octagonal Scored A Memorable Win In The Inaugural $770,000 Horsezone.Com.Au Inglis Guineas.  Given He Was Sold For $23,000 At The 2008 Scone Yearling Sale, Star Of Octagonal Is A Most Fitting First Winner Of The Inglis Guineas (1600m).

Star Of Octagonal (3g Octagonal – Joyce By  ) Was Purchased Out Of The Woodlands Stud Draft By Todd Howlett.  The Singleton Based Trainer Bought Him For Phil And Leanne Moore Who Became Stable Clients After Buying A Share In A Horse At A Fund Raising Auction.  

Leanne Later Had A Dream She Would Race A Son Of The Great Octagonal And The 2008 Scone Sale Provided That Opportunity, With Howlett Liking What He Saw After Making An Inspection.

Star Of Octagonal Beat Subsequent Hawkesbury Guineas Winner Neeson In The G3 South Pacific Classic At Randwick Last Month And Rather Than Push On For A Re-Match With That Horse In The Hawkesbury Guineas, Howlett Waited Until Friday’s Lucrative Race.

“Star Of Octagonal Looks A Real Horse Of The Future,” Inglis Commercial Development Manager Matt Rudolph Said.  “The Inglis Race Series Started Ba In October Of 2008 With Starspangledbanner Winning The Inglis Juvenile.  I Think We’ve Just Seen An Equally Exciting Prospect Close Out The Series For 2008 Graduates At Scone.”

Howlett Will Now Seek Group 1 Riches With Star Of Octagonal Who Has Now Earned Over $610,000.  The 10 Times Group 1 Winning Champion Octagonal Is Represented In Sunday’s Scone Yearling Sales By A Brown Colt From The Danzero Mare Frantastic (Lot 348) From The Family Of Champion US Mare Azeri.
