Horse Description:

Star Witness continues to produce stakes class horses each season and this colt is an example of why - a strong bodied, well mannered athlete with strength to run early and scope to improve.

He was bought from the same vendor that Shea purchased our star sprinter Ocean Embers and we hope lightning can strike twice.
