The Ormond Ferraris trained Gr3 Magnolia Handicap winner Lazer Star retained her unbeaten record with a facile win against an admittedly modest field in Saturday’s R150 000 Listed Swallow Stakes run over the Turffontein 1160m straight.

The daughter of Toreador was given an armchair ride by Weichong Marwing and kept things in the family as she runs in the red and blue silks of his wife, Anneli.

The original field of ten scratched down to only eight runners and the topweighted Lazer Star was backed into prohibitive odds-on at the exclusion of the rest.

The race was a formality as she cruised all the way and showed vastly superior speed.

She  won in a decent time of 66,94 secs and beat Silver Class by 3,50 lengths with By Jove in third.

Lazer Star maintained her 100% record from her 4 runs and took her earnings to R359 375.

She was bred by the Tawny Syndicate and is by Toreador out of the three-time winning Sri Pekan mare, Empress Of Ozz.

Lazer Star went through the National Yearling Sale ring where she sold for R350 000.

She was Weichong Marwing’s second armchair win of the day after Alec Laird’s Klipdrif Stud bred Var gelding Dollar Dazzler came home lonely and back to his best, to win the fifth race.
