Hint Of Stars

Hint of Stars is a very well bred half brother to the smart Savvy Six (3rd in the Group 1 German Derby) and to the listed winner Rose Rized. He is out of the German Oaks winner Rosenreihe. He is by the great Sea The Stars, the six time Group 1 winner who has been a hugely successful sire producing the likes of Derby winner Harzand, Oaks winner Taghrooda, Sea The Moon and Crystal Ocean. Most recently he has continued his success with Stradivarius, winner of three Ascot Gold Cups in a row. His progeny improve with age and Hint of Stars himself has become hugely progressive in recent months and I believe will continue to get better as he gets older.

Hint of Stars made a very promising debut at the Curragh over 7f not beaten far behind the top class multiple Group winner Armory. He continued to run in decent races as a 3yo notably behind the English Derby 3rd and Irish Derby 2nd and Breeders Cup Mile winner Order of Australia. He ran with credit but without progressing until he changed yards to Kevin Philippart de Foy.

Since the switch of yards Hint of Stars has looked mighty progressive winning his last three races in great style. He got off the mark in eye catching fashion over 1m 4 1/2f at Kempton travelling smoothly through the race before keeping on well to win comfortably. He improved once more to win again at Kempton and then most recently he completed the hattrick over a shorter trip of 1m 3f, again at Kempton, travelling strongly through the race before keeping on to win with something in hand. He looks a very smart handicapper in the making and hopefully will develop into an Ebor horse. 

Hint of Stars ran in a very competitive handicap at York's Dante meeting where he did not relish the soft ground, but will come on for the run after a lay off.
