Stripesof Stars was bought for £68,000 at the 2022 Goffs UK Breeze Up Sale in Doncaster, England.
A strong, fast-looking and well-balanced colt who breezed in a very good way and with an entry to the 2023 Swedish Derby and Oaks Series at Jägersro.
He was consigned by Brown Island Stables in Ireland and sourced in cooperation between Edgar Byrne Racing and Filip Zwicky Agency.
Stripesof Stars went into training with Scandinavia’s Champion trainer Niels Petersen at Øvrevoll and won 1st time out with great authority in September.
Stripesof Stars is bred in Ireland and born on January 3rd 2020.
He belongs to the first crop of European Champion 2YO and Champion 3YO Sprinter U S Navy Flag (pictured), himself a son of sire sensation and Sire of Sires War Front (Danzig).
U S Navy Flag was the first Middle Park Stakes (Group 1) winner to follow up in with a win in the Dewhurst Stakes (Group 1) since Diesis in 1982!
At 3 he won the July Cup (Group 1) and finished 2nd in the Irish 2000 Guineas (Group 1).
Stripesof Stars is the first foal out of the Cape Cross mare Edelline, who only raced once for Luca Cumani. Edelline, who also has a yearling colt by Kodiac, is a half-sister to Group 2 winner Emerald Commander and out of an own sister to Racing Post Trophy (Group 1) winner Commander Collins.
His 3rd dam, the Group 3 winning Kanmary (Kenmare) also produced American Champion Sprinter and Breeders’ Cup Sprint (Group 1) winner Lit De Justice as well as Royal Lodge Stakes (Group 2) winner City Leader.
