Alluring Star was bred by our owners Jeff Hamer and Bernard Bargh, out of the winning Emarati mare Alustar who they had owned and raced.

Alustar was a proper home bred, being sired by our regally bred Winter Derby winner Gentleman's Deal, who we stood at Norton Grove Stud. Gentleman's Deal had been bought for a bargain price at the sales and sired many winners before being sold to stand in Russia.

Alluring Star's first wins came in 2011 when she won twice at Carlisle over the stiff seven furlongs on good to soft ground. She was unlucky in her next race at Chester, being hampered a furlong out which put paid to her chances, and she finished seventh. However, she was back to winning ways at Leicester later that month, winning the 'Grease Nights Handicap' over a mile ridden by James Sullivan, this time on good to firm.

Alluring Star ran consistently the following season but her next win was not to come until April 2013 when she scored at Beverley over an extended mile. She liked her stiff uphill finishes as she got her stamina from her sire.

In 2014 Alluring Star rattled up a hat-trick, winning at Catterick for Danielle Mooney, at Musselburgh for Graham Gibbons, and then again for Danielle at Nottingham. Alluring Star's win at Nottingham, where she took the 'See You On Tuesday 20th May Apprentice Training Series Handicap' over an extended mile, was to be her last win and she was now handicapped to the very best of her ability after her winning spree. 'Alluring' was also in foal to Dick Turpin and she ran her final race at Doncaster in July 2014, again ridden by Danielle, before heading for the paddocks.
