The Chris Waller-trained Ocean Park gelding Star Of The Seas failed to make the field for the Stradbroke and stayed at home in Sydney with a winning result in the Racing to Win Handicap (1600m).

The four-year-old gelding has been a model of consistency having record four wins and four placings from eight starts this preparation and never running out of the money in his 13 career starts.

“He’s had a fantastic preparation,” Waller’s racing manager Charlie Duckworth said.

“He was balloted out of the Stradbroke so he came here instead.

“He’s just a beautiful horse and jumps and travels and just wants to please.”

Star Of The Seas gave his jockey Jay Ford a double for the Waller stable after his earlier win on two-year-old Catwalk.

Star of the Seas who was bred by Trelawney Stud, was sold off the back of a trial win in New Zealand when prepared by Clayton Chipperfield through bloodstock agent Phil Cataldo to Sydney based Tony Muollo. – Racing News
