Future Hint of Stars

featured image

Progressive, multiple-winning stayer HINT OF STARS will be heading to Australian-based trainer Matt Cumani later this year.  Avenue Bloodstock have brokered a deal for the four-year-old son of Sea The Stars from the yard of Kevin Philippart de Foy to new owners, the very successful Highclere Racing.  Winner of his last three starts for Midlands Racing Club, he will be staying on with his current handler to run at Royal Ascot and The Ebor before heading abroad.

Kevin Philippart de Foy, a relative newcomer to the training ranks taking out a license in September 2020, has had an impressive start to his career.  Training out the historic Machell Place Stables in Newmarket, he has an enviable strike-rate of 28% from his runners thus far.

A 115,000gns yearling from Tattersalls October Book One.  HINT OF STARS is out of the German Classic winner ROSENREIHE.  He is a half-brother to Listed winner ROSE RIZED and G1-placed Rosenpurpur.

We would like to wish their new connections all the best of luck and many future successes with HINT OF STARS.
