Premier Star romps in Jersey Shore; out of Schumer purchase
Premier Star, out of Schumer Bloodstock purchase Letthetigerparty, lived up to his name in style on Wednesday when romping in the Jersey Shore Stakes at Monmouth Park.
Partnered by Paco Lopez, Premier Star took up the running with a little less than a half-mile to race and kicked clear to win by close to five lengths over Johnny Ritt.
The Michael Trombetta-trained son of Tapiture, for whom he is a sixth black-type winner, now boasts four wins from seven starts. He also ran a recent third to undefeated Yaupon in the Grade 2 Amsterdam Stakes at Saratoga.
Premier Star was bred by Charlie Deters in Kentucky out of Letthetigerparty, a 5-time winner purchased privately by Chad Schumer off the track. The daughter of Hold That Tiger is a half-sister to stakes winner Carouse.
