Star Turn is the latest of this season's quality Australian three-year-old colts to be retired to stud.

He will stand a Vinery in the spring and joins Group One winners Flying Artie, Extreme Choice and Capitalist on the retired list, with that trio to take up duties at Newgate Farm.

A dual Group winner and a son of dual Group One-winning sprinter Star Witness, Star Turn was also placed four times at Group One level, most recently when third in last week's William Reid Stakes.

He also ran third in the Coolmore Stud Stakes behind Flying Artie and Godolphin's Astern, who will also go to stud in the spring.

Vinery bought into Star Turn last December and original owner Alan Bell will remain in the ownership group.

"We had been tracking him since his first win as an early two-year-old at Randwick but it was his three-year-old campaign that impressed us the most," the Hunter Valley stid's general manager Peter Orton said.

"He's the colt we rated of the current crop to stand at Vinery. He has pedigree, performance and physique, all essential qualities we look for in a stallion."
