Zoustar has won the $1 million Golden Rose at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse today September 14, 2013.

The Northern Meteor colt wasn’t fazed by his outside barrier and settled near the tail of the field in the early stages of the race.

Zoustar flew down the final straight to win the 2013 Golden Rose by a convincing margin ahead of Dissident, who was strong in third.

Ball Point flew down the straight to finish a stunning third after being five lengths behind the second last runner on the home turn.

Zoustar has now won four of his six race starts and has earned close to $1 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

Trainer Chris Waller was ecstatic with Zoustar’s winning performance in the 2013 Golden Rose.

“(It’s a) great thrill,” Waller said.

“When the barriers came out Tuesday obviously I went ‘bugger’.

“But we just looked at the positives.

“He sat three wide the early part minding his own business.

“Jimmy (Cassidy) never moved on him and didn’t get any interference out there that’s for sure.

“He’s a serious colt, obviously a very valuable colt.”

Zoustar finished fourth first-up in the Group 3 Run To The Rose last start.

“He might have been a bit fresh. It’s hard to get it right every start,” Waller said.

“Geez he’s a serious horse.

“Good horses, they’re just superior. They just lift to the occasion.

“And that first-up run lifted him to today.”

Today’s 2013 Golden Rose win marked Jimmy Cassidy’s 99th Group 1 win.

“I thought just go back,” Cassidy said.

“I didn’t want to burn petrol early with other races in mind.

“I was backing the horse’s ability and mine. I know Chris has already done his job.

“The tempo wasn’t that quick so I spent nothing in the run.

“When you draw alleys like that you can’t win big races burning petrol.”
