19/03/02 Final Destination Sold and Star Satire Retired
Hot on the heels of the announcement that the multiple Group One winning mare Giovana had been retired, New Zealand has lost another two stars of the turf.

The exciting galloper Final Destination, who resumed with a strong finishing win at Ellerslie on March 2, has been finally sold.

A winner of two Group One races last year, the New Zealand 1000 Guineas and the Bayer Classic, the daughter of O'Reilly is the winner of her past three starts.

Yet to finish further back than fourth in her nine starts to date, the filly will follow in the footsteps of another former kiwi filly Happyanunoit and join the powerful Bobby Frankel stable in the states.

Meanwhile, the Volksraad Group One winning mare Star Satire has been retired after being galloped on over the weekend.

Last year she scored dashing three length win in the Group One Auto Auctions Stakes at Trentham. As well as being a Group Three winner she was also runner-up in the Group One Bayer Classic to Tit for Taat last year.

At her penulimate start she finished second to No Mean City in the 2002 Auto Auctions Stakes.

Sadly for her connections Star Satire was galloped on in the Group One Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes on Saturday and she suffered a severe tendon injury.
