Starlight Australia

Our newest offering to Starlight partners

With Starlight Australia, we showcase an international venture partnering with Australia’s Newgate Racing. Owing to Newgate’s fantastic track record, Starlight Australia bought shares in 30 yearlings for our 2020 season.

Here are a few of our stunning Australian colts coming out of the Magic Millions and Inglis Classic Sales.

The Inception of Starlight Australia

In Newgate Racing’s first four years of buying colts in Australia, and as part of their Newgate Colts Syndicate, they developed three group 1 winning colts, all of whom went to stud as highly commercial sires; Russian Revolution, Capitalist, and Invader, with the latter two both becoming the Champion 2 Year-Old Colts of their generation. Newgate has shown us that they have a system that works, and they are currently running a very successful race-to-breed program in Australia. 

From Newgate’s current crop of 3 year-olds, they have already produced three group winners, all of which will retire to stud in Australia in some capacity. This is a crop that includes track record-breaker and Golden Slipper favorite, Cosmic Force. 

Our trainer in Australia is the acclaimed horseman, Peter Snowden.

Why Australia?

This Investor Guide by Aushorse, highlights many of the reasons that Australia has proven to be such an attractive investment arena for global bloodstock players, and we are thrilled to now be able to offer this opportunity to our Starlight partners.

This is Starlight’s newest, international endeavor, and it is a truly unique and innovative syndicate-experience. We feel fortunate to be at the forefront of it, and look forward to the start of this new segment developing champion colts and high level commercial stallion prospects for the international arena.
