Tavistock’s son a rising star

Tavistock’s son a rising star15 May 2020

Victoria Star is well-travelled, but lightly-raced and the son of Tavistock is quickly making up for lost time.

The six-year-old completed a hat-trick of wins at Cranbourne on Friday evening and looks well capable of advancing to a much higher grade.

He is prepared by Greg Eurell and his only defeat in Australia was a fourth placing at Moonee Valley in the spring.

Victoria Star was a $80,000 Karaka yearling where he was purchased by Glen Harvey Bloodstock.

He was raced by Harvey’s parents Bruce and Maureen and won both of his starts from Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs’ stable.

Then known as Rocstock, the gelding was subsequently sold to Hong Kong interests, but failed to acclimatise there and was sent to Victoria.

Victoria Star is clearly relishing life in Eurell’s stable and set to further build on his career record of five wins from eight starts.

He was bred by Miss J Fleming, T E Jamison & A C McLeod is out of a half-sister to the former champion Hong Kong Miler and multiple Group One winner Armada.
