2016-2017 SEASON Lazarus $1.28m (4yo) 15 starts – 12 wins – 1 second – 7 Group 1’s

A new record stake (soon to be eclipsed) and a big run in Australia topped by a third in the Miracle Mile put the winning break on the field. But how stiff was Smolda yet again winning $1.28m Partyon won $442,000 Spanish Armada topped that at $481,000; Vincent took $418,000 and Ultimate Machete $370,000

2017-2018 SEASON Lazarus $1.63m (5yo) 13 starts – 8 wins – 3 seconds 3 Group 1’s

Fairly well speaks for itself winning the NZ and Hunter Cups and Inter Dominion Final. Ultimate Machete his travelling companion in Australia won $404,000, Elle Mac $290,000 while Chase Auckland won $392,000 as the leading three year old. Princess Tiffany won $208,000 as a juvenile and late addition Shez All Rock chalked up over $100,000 in a short time. But there was little doubt now that Laz had taken over from Auckland Reactor as the best ever -so far anyway.

2018-2019 SEASON Spankem $869,000 (4yo) 15 starts – 8 win – 1 second – 4 Group 1’s

The Miracle Mile is the key to the win over Thefixer ($736,000), the Canadian Club Sprint and the G1 double in Auckland late in the season securing the title over the New Zealand Cup winner with Ultimate Sniper getting close to $500,000. Spankem’s rise to the top was somewhat rapid as he had been a minor upset winner of the Kaikoura Cup before the Inter Dominions thrust him into the limelight.

2019-2020 SEASON Cruz Bromac $470,160 (8yo) 11 starts – 3 wins – 3 seconds – 1 Group 1

Few would have expected an All Star season champ being eight years old but in a bizarre season he was the right horse in the right place on NZ Cup day and continued to race well in the Inter Doms. Amazing Dream ($419,000) would probably (lets make that certainly) have topped him but her later curtailed opportunities and the sidelining of a number of the previous season stars aided the veteran who proved again the racing adage-being in the right place at the right time! Ultimate Sniper considering his light campaign which included the Inter Dominion Final did a great job too.

Incredibly this season All Stars had six of the top ten stake earners and all of the first five
