Luxardo an Absolut Star

LUXARDO

Mogok (USA) - Absolut Star

Backworth-bred grey, Luxardo, rocketed back into winning form Monday for trainer Dorrie Sham when stealing victory by the narrowest of margins over 1200m on the Flamingo Park sand track. Hot on the Mogok gelding's heels were the Bill Human-trained duo of Taso The Sailor (Muhtafal) and Il Palio (Windrush).

Luxardo's dam-line is bursting with Bold-Black Type, including Grade 2 SA Oaks winner Seven Stars, Hot Seven, The Seventh Star, Alpha Centauri, ARCSA Champion Two-Year-Old Colt Gold Flier, Grade 1 Gold Challenge winner Successful Bidder and Grade 1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship winner Trust Antonia, to name but a few from a most successful family.

Congratulations to trainer Dorrie Sham and owner Mr van Huyssteen!
