Tosen Stardom is out of the proven producer, Admire Kirameki, a four-time winning daughter of End Sweep (USA), and half-sister to the Group 1 winner and Group 1 Japan Cup runner-up Tosen Jordon and the Group 2 winner Tosen Homareboshi, as well as the stakes placed pair of Careless Whisper and Dark Massage.
One of only three multiple Group 1-winning sons of Deep Impact currently standing at stud in Europe, sending a mare to Tosen Stardom gives breeders a phenomenal opportunity to access the some of the greatness bloodlines in the world.
Tosen Stardom’s pedigree is an ideal outcross to almost all bloodlines in Ireland and UK and with sons of Deep Impact having already sired just shy of 80 stakes performers, the future of Tosen Stardom shines bright.

“Tosen Stardom is right up there with the best horses I have trained and has everything it takes to be one of the great stallion in this country, he’s got the pedigree, the ability and now he’s got the Group 1,” stated his Australian trainer.
With juvenile stakes success in Japan at just his second career start followed by a Group 3 win at his third, it was always evident he would improve as he matured.
Initially sent for the 2015 Sydney Autumn Carnival, Tosen Stardom finished second in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes at his Australian debut before a fifth in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes. Back to Japan for a further six starts which included a Listed win, the son of Deep Impact headed back to Australia, and was based in Victoria.
With Group 1 placed performances in the Futurity Stakes and Memsie Stakes at his first few starts, Tosen Stardom came of age by winning the Group 1 Toorak Handicap, before two starts later adding his second elite level score, winning the Group 1 Emirates Stakes, defeating a host of Group 1 winners including Happy Clapper, It’s Somewhat and Harlem.
Tosen Stardom’s victory in the Emirates Stakes clearly highlights his appeal, considering that since 2000, the race has been won only four times by colts/stallion, with three having already had runners – all producing stakes winners highlighted by the outstanding sires Lonhro and So You Think – both Group 1 producing stallion of the highest calibre.
Continuing to show his class, Tosen Stardom finished second over 1400m in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes, before retiring to stand at stud two starts later.
Retiring sound with considerable prize money of $3,342,526, Tosen Stardom is one of just a handful of Deep Impact sire sons available to breeders in Ireland and Uk.
