Exciting 2YO Winners for Sebring
A $500,000 Magic Millions purchase for the China Horse Club, dashing chestnut Sebring filly Eawase became the first winner for former flying filly Karuta Queen when she cast off maiden status at Randwick on ANZAC Day.
Trained by Peter and Paul Snowden, Eawase was luckless when finishing fourth and third in her first two starts in December and January.
Spelled after that, Eawase was tuned up with two recent trials and proved too strong at the finish for her stablemate Galina in winning the 1200 metre fillies maiden by a short neck wth two lengths back to the rest.
The runner-up was bought out of the same sale by China Horse Club for $300,000 from the Newgate Farm draft and is a half-sister by Smart Missile to dual Group I winner Russian Revolution, so the finish produced a quinella of real blue-blooded fillies.
Bred and offered for sale by Strawberry Hill Stud, Eawase is the first winner for Group III winner Karuta Queen, who won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and was Group I placed with earnings in excess of $1.8 million.
Making it a winning double for Sebring 2YO’s on ANZAC Day was promising filly Pretty in Pink.
$1million Written Tycoon colt King will have to wait for another day to break his maiden after being thumped by Pretty in Pink at Gosford.
A homebred for Segenhoe Thoroughbreds prepared by John O’Shea, Pretty in Pink won her only previous trial at Warwick Farm earlier this month and stepped it up a notch again for this assignment.
She travelled midfield for Jeff Penza in the 1000 metre juvenile maiden and had no trouble running straight past King to score a dominant two and a half length win.
Passed in shy of her $275,000 reserve by Segenhoe at Inglis Easter, Pretty on Pink is the first winner for Group II placed Nadeem mare Total Attraction, who comes from the family of dual Cox Plate winner Fields of Omagh.
