Ghada stars at Menangle

Ghada stars at Menangle


Handy mare Ghadastar, who was bred and reared at Benstud Standardbreds, earned a new speed badge of 1:53.9 when she overpowered her rivals at Menangle on Saturday night (June 1).


Second to last at the 600 metre mark, the four-year-old was angled four deep in the home straight and prevailed in the last bound.


It was her 10th win and lifted her stake tally to almost $75,000.


Bred by Harvey Kaplan and Adam Wilkinson, Ghadastar is the first foal of the smart racemare Arkabar 1:59.6 (7 wins and $81,189).
