Another Group One Performer for Sebring
Up and coming Sebring filly Scratchy Bottom has always been held in high regard by her trainer Mick Kent and went very close to winning her first Group I race at Morphettville on Saturday when narrowly beaten in the SAJC Australasian Oaks.
Scratchy Bottom charged home from second last to finish third beaten a short head and a head by May’s Dream and Star Fashion.
A $120,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Dermot Farrington Bloodstock from the draft of Reavill Farm, Scratchy Bottom runs in the all black colours of Gilgai Farm’s Rick Jamieson, who is of course famous as the breeder of Black Caviar and All Too Hard.
She is the fourth winner from Group II placed Silk Veil, a sister to stakes-winner Danasia, the dam of Group I STC Rosehill Guineas winner Zabrasive.
With two wins and a placing from six starts and prizemoney topping $125,000, Scratchy Bottom looms as a future stakes-winner for Sebring, who leads the Australian Second Season Sires list by earnings and stakes-winners.
