First Group winner for Cloth Of Stars

Dallas Star lands the G3 Ballysax Stakes at Leopardstown

The second crop of Cloth Of Stars have been impressing this season and they took a notable step into Group company when Dallas Star landed the G3 Ballysax Stakes at Leopardstown.

A G3-placed juvenile when trained by Dominic Ffrench Davis, Dallas Star was making his first start as a three-year-old, and first for Adrian Murray, when winning by three lengths.

Bred by Eliane Dieuaide, Dallas Star is one of nine winners bred out of the unraced Sadler’s Wells mare Agathe Rare, who is from the top family of Arcangues, Luxembourg and Aquarelliste.

Cloth Of Stars has now sired 14 three-year-old winners this season including six that have won at the major Paris tracks. Later in the afternoon, his first-crop son Birr Castle ran another excellent race to finish third in the G2 Prix d’Harcourt.

Cloth Of Stars is standing at a fee of €5,000 this season at Haras du Logis in France.
