Lammerskraal’s exciting new broodmare Imperious Star will visit Highland Farm’s outstanding sire Dynasty this season.
The former G1 Woolavington Stakes heroine recently gave birth to a lovely Duke Of Marmalade foal –the third of her career (Imperious Star’s first foal is G1 SA Nursery third Double Appeal).
Imperious Star made history when she was sold to Lammerskraal for R3.2 million at the recent (and inaugural) CTS Mare & Fillies For Stud Select Sale.
A top class racemare, whose victories included not only the G1 Woolavington (where Imperious Star accounted for five individual G1 winners), but also the G3 Umzikhulu Handicap, Imperious Star earned over R680 000 during her career.
A daughter of US G1 winner Navarone, Imperious Star is one of six winners produced by former ARCSA Champion and G1 J&B Met heroine Imperious Sue (a daughter of multiple champion sire and broodmare sire Northern Guest).
Imperious Sue (herself a half sister to G2 winning sire Royal Air Force) is also dam of Listed Winter Oaks winner Blue Heather (dam of the useful galloper Big Cat), while Blue Heather’s full sister Red Growler is the dam of Listed Sweet Chestnut Stakes heroine Sunset Tripp.
