Laing colt stars for Fiorente
Oct 15, 2018
Sun Stud’s FIORENTE has gone within a whisker of capturing a stakes victory with his first cropper Stars of Carrum finishing second in the Listed Hill Smith Stakes over 1800m at Morphettville Racecourse.
Reminiscent of his sire – the ‘Fast Stayer’ – Stars of Carrum flew home to just miss out right on the wire and the 3YO colt clearly has a promising future with Cranbourne trainer Robbie Laing Racing.
In his last three outings, Stars of Carrum finished just over a length and a half off the winner in the Group Two Bill Stutt Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley Racing Club and was beaten the barest margin over 1600m at Bairnsdale Racecourse last week.
Sold by Sun Stud for $75,000 at the 2017 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale, Stars of Carrum’s granddam is the Adelaide Group Two winner, Jameela.
