Star of Cozzene (foaled 1988 in Kentucky) is a retired American Thoroughbred racehorse who won on both dirt and turf.

A descendant of Nearco through both his sire and his dam, he won the 1991 Kelso Handicap at New York's Belmont Park. In 1992 his owners, Clover Racing Stables, sent him to trainer Francois Boutin to race in France and England. There, his best result in five starts was a second in the Group 3 Prix du Chemin de Fer du Nord at Chantilly Racecourse. [1]

Star of Cozzene returned to race in the United States in September of 1992 where he raced once, finishing ninth in the Arlington Million. The following year, under owner Team Valor and trainer Mark Henning, five-year-old Star of Cozzene had his best year in racing when he won six events including the Arlington Million. [2] In late September of 1993, he was sold for $3 million to Tomaeato Farm, owners of breeding farms in Japan. Star of Cozzene was retired from racing in August of 1994 with earnings in excess of US$2.3 million. He was sent to stand at stud in Japan. [3]
