Fastnet Filly Flies to ‘TDN Rising Star’-dom


Star Devine as a yearling | Tattersalls

By Alan Carasso

Dispatched at debut odds of 9-1 in Thursday’s fourth race from Aqueduct, Lawrence Goichman’s Star Devine (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) gave her rivals a bit of a head start after hopping slightly at the break, but she was handled perfectly thereafter by Trevor McCarthy and stormed home down the center of the track to graduate in sharp time to become a new ’TDN Rising Star.’

Spotting the field a couple of lengths after that slow break, Star Devine–a 200,000gns purchase by Mike Ryan out of the 2019 Tattersalls October Sale–Book 1–was allowed to find her feet and settled last but one as the leaders went a good gallop up front. Tracking favored Dovima (Union Rags) through in about the three path on the turn, she was steered out decisively to the grandstand side as they hit the top of the lane and she covered her final two furlongs in a slick :22.53 (per Trakus data) to take it by 1 1/2 lengths.

Star Devine is the second foal for her dam, who was purchased by Mick Flanagan for 350,000gns in foal to Mastercraftsman (Ire) at the 2016 Tattersalls December Mares sale. Stars At Night is a half-sister to 2011 G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas and G1 Darley Yorshire Oaks winner Blue Bunting (Dynaformer) and a full-sister to MGSP Exemplar (Ire). Star Devine has a 2-year-old full-brother named Poker Face (Ire) and a yearling full-sister. Star Devine is bred on the exact same cross responsible for GI Man o’ War S. heroine Zhukova (Ire), G1 Investec Oaks winner Qualify (Ire), G1 Moyglare Stud S. victress Intricately (Ire) and Australian Group 1 winners Personal (Aus), Age of Fire (Aus) and Magicool (Aus).
