Two year-old Star Witness filly Star Galaxy was sent out favourite for the juvenile maiden at Canterbury on Wednesday, but Pierro gelding Noviero made her work hard to post the win.

Unbeaten in two previous trials, Star Galaxy was tenacious to the line for Kerrin McEvoy, scoring a long head win over Noviero in the 1100 metre maiden.

A $70,000 Inglis Classic purchase for James Harron Bloodstock from the Rosemont Stud draft, Star Galaxy is the first foal of metro winning Not a Single Doubt mare Jackpot Queen, who comes from a family of slick sprinters including current Group II winner In Her Time.

Star Witness has had a great season with Group 1 winner Global Glamour, while the dual Group 3 winner Fuhryk was also sold by Rosemont Stud.

The next opportunity to purchase stock raised and/or sold by Rosemont Stud is at the upcoming Inglis Great Southern Sale.
