In Friday's issue of ANZ Bloodstock News, Leon Corstens hopes his talented filly Thrillster, the current Australian flagbearer for her sire Starspangledbanner, can replicate her father’s feat of winning at the highest level over 1600 metres tomorrow.

Better known as a star sprinter, Coolmore-based stallion Starspangledbanner led throughout to emphatically claim the 2009 Caulfield Guineas before achieving success at Group 1 level in Europe over shorter distances.

James Thomas also gives a full rundown from a riveting second session of Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.
