Stratum Star returns to Widden to begin his covering career

1 of 1

Dual Group 1 winner Stratum Star has been retired and will return to his birthplace at Widden Stud in New South Wales, Australia, where he will stand at a fee of A$11,000.

Trained by Darren Weir, Stratum Star's top-flight wins came in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes over 7f and the Kingston Town Classic over 1m1f.

He also finished placed in the Australian Guineas, Futurity Stakes, Memsie Stakes and Toorak Handicap, all at the highest level.

Five-year-old Stratum Star has the highest Racing Post Rating of any colt sired by Golden Slipper winner Stratum, who stood at Widden until his premature death last year.

He is out of a mare by the champion New Zealand sire Pins, from a black-type family tracing back to the champion mare Emancipation on the distaff side.

Antony Thompson of Widden Stud said: "We are delighted to welcome Stratum Star back to the farm to join our stallion roster in 2017.

"We bred him, foaled and raised him, then sold him at Magic Millions and have always been so proud of his considerable achievements."

Stratum Star will stand alongside Golden Slipper winner Sebring, who lies seventh in the Australian sires' table, as well as fellow dual Group 1 winners Zoustar and Nicconi.
