Star Impact has carried on with her love of Newcastle, scoring another runaway win at our home venue.

The daughter of Japanese stallion Mikki Isle (JPN) resumed from a break at Randwick three weeks prior and was just over seven lengths from the winner.

Straight out to the mile for her second-up assignment, Mark engaged leading rider Aaron Bullock; who had combined with Star Impact for three successes from only a handful of rides.

Settling just off the pace, Star Impact travelled sweetly in the run; the pair rounding up their rivals under the arches, running away for an easy win.

Star Impact was a $12,000 tried horse purchase by Mark Minervini from the 2022 Inglis December Online Sale, and the win now takes her stake earnings to just under $200,000.

Mark, Michelle and the team at Minervini Racing provide a hands-on approach and pride themselves on resurrecting the careers of tried horses, with Star Impact joining a long line of mares that have joined the team and flourished in their new surroundings,

Congratulations to her owners Gavin Beecroft, My Lam, Robert Brown, Rob Burton, Bob & Kerrie  Dailey, David McManus, Paul Rosenich, Paul Till, John Wilks, SYN Minervini Racing (Mgr: Michelle Minervini), SYN Wungali Racing (Mgr: Bob Dailey), SYN From The Track – Star (Mgr: Allen Hardes), SYN Grey Fox (Mgr: Lindsay Hunt)
