TDN Rising Star status for son of Schumer purchase
Premier Star, out of Schumer Bloodstock private purchase Lettthetigerparty, lived up to his name in emphatic style on Wednesday when making it two out of two in allowance company at Gulfstream Park.
So impressive was the Tapiture colt that he was named a ‘TDN RISING STAR’.
Sent off the 1-5 favorite, Premier Star was always in control to cruise home for a 5 1/4- length win over Americanus (by War Front).
“From Day 1, I knew I had something special,” trainer Jorge Navarro said. “When I had him at Monmouth, I called the owner and said, ‘This is the real deal’. Now, it’s the path to the [GI Xpressbet.com] Florida Derby.”
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.
