WHILE Zoustar may have been a nomination for the Newmarket Handicap, the champion colt will race exclusively in Sydney before he heads to the UK in June, says Racing Network.

Chris Waller said the dual Group 1 winner would resume in the $500,000 Group 1 Canterbury Stakes (1300 m) at Randwick on March 15.

Waller said Zoustar would then head to the $2.5 million TJ Smith Stakes (1200 m) on April 12 and his final Australian start in the $400,000 All Aged Stakes (1400 m) on April 26.

Zoustar will then head to England for the Diamond Jubilee on the final day of the Royal Ascot carnival.

He said there was “no hurry” to trial Zoustar as he isn’t due to race until March.

“He should be ready to trial in two or three weeks,” Waller said.

Waller said including the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes and/or Newmarket Handicap in Zoustar’s campaign would have meant “an around the world trip” before he got to England.

“To have him ready that early would have meant a very long preparation,” Waller said.

“Basically we’re saving him up by holding him back.”

Waller will trial Epsom and Emirates Stakes winner Boban as well as Myer Classic quinella Red Tracer and Catkins over 900 metres tomorrow at Rosehill.

“It’s still early days and consequently they will be having pretty quiet trials,” Waller said.

Waller said he hasn’t mapped out a definitive campaign for the three horses, but flagged that Boban may resume in the Expressway Stakes (1200 m) at Randwick on February 8.

He added the two mares would likely resume in mid-to-late February.

“They’ve all come back to the stable really well, I could not be any happier with them,” Waller said.

“It’s a matter of holding them together and getting them back to the same form.”
