CHRIS Waller hasn’t locked down an autumn campaign for superstar colt Zoustar, reports Racing Network. Waller, whose five winners spread over Rosehill, Kembla Grange and Flemington yesterday took his season tally of winners to 100, says there are attractive options both in Sydney and Melbourne.

He intewnds to speak to Widden Stud, which purchased the son of Northern Meteor for a reported $18 million, before finalizing a program.

“There are races for him in both States, we’ll just weigh everything up,” Waller says. “He’s come back looking in terrific order.”

Zoustar, a winner of the Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day, has the Royal Ascot carnival in mid-June in his longer-term sights.

Waller says most of his stars – Red Tracer, Hawkspur, Foreteller, Arinosa – have begun to filter back into his stables.

Hawkspur and Foreteller may take in the $1 million Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington in early March en-route to the Sydney carnival.

While Instrumentalist impressed with his fighting win yesterday at Flemington, Waller doesn’t believe the horse is seasoned enough for the Bagot Handicap (2800 m) at Flemington on New Year’s Day.

He says both Instrumentalist and Index Linked, effortless winner in a 2000 m race at Flemington, are likely to have another run in Melbourne in the coming weeks.
