Not missing the money in 8 starts, the Backworth-bred Glitter Star (Muhtafal - Celestial Charm) notched up a third win Sunday at Turffontein under jockey Anton Marcus for trainer Lucky Houdalakis. Interestingly, this was Anton Marcus’ 200th victory of the season and we’re proud to have played a small part in his quest for the South African Champion Jockey title for a second year running.

Glitter Star’s dam, Celestial Charm, is a half sister to Roland’s Song; ARCSA Champion 2-year-old filly, Horse Of The Year, Champion 3-year-old and Champion Older Female.

The 4-year-old gelding takes his career record to 3 wins and 5 places from 8 starts. Congratulations to owner Mr ME Leaf.

Glitter Star is a graduate from the Backworth draft of the 2010 KZN Yearling Sale.
