Star Turn sired the 30th individual winner from his first crop when True Nobility scored a trouble-free victory in the Fishers IGA Plate (1100m) at Hamilton on Saturday.
Two hours later, the Vinery stallion was represented by his 6th black-type performer when Max Fire was touched off in a three-way photo-finish to the SAJC Hill-Smith Stakes LR at Morphettville.
True Nobility (3g Star Turn – Hemingway Rules by Hemingway) is trained by Peter Chow at Warrnambool and was racing first-up since a sighter on debut at his home track in May. He was keen to go faster behind the speed but was held in check by Jason Maskiell before cutting down front-runner In Her Stride (Stratum Star).
“That was a great effort and Jason was patient. He rode perfectly to instructions,” Chow said. “He’s the first horse for most of the owners and I only wish they could have been on course to watch the win.”
True Nobility was bred by Musk Creek Farm’s David Kobritz in partnership and was a $25,000 buy for Chow at the 2020 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. He’s from a half-sister to Man Of Illusion (Encosta de Lago) who clocked a class-record at Doomben before transferring to America where he won a Group 3 Sprint at Churchill Downs.
