Sebring Double at Rosehill
Sebring featured with a winning double at Rosehill on Saturday and both winners, More to Gain and Bring Luck, were sold by Widden Stud as yearlings.
Three year-old gelding More To Gain was a Breednet ‘One to Watch’ when casting off maiden status at his previous start last month and confirmed his potential with an easy win over 1300 metres.
Trained by Amanda Turner and Mauro Poletti, More to Gain has won two of six starts earning over $95,000 in prizemoney.
A modest $36,000 Inglis Classic Summer Book purchase from the Widden Stud draft for renowned judge Paul Willetts, More to Gain made a fine impression when re-offered at the NZB Ready to Run Sale where he made $280,000 for Mana Park when snapped up by Mauro Poletti.
More to Gain has a pedigree that suggests longer events will also be well within his scope.
A half-brother to stakes-winner Veuvelicious, More to Gain was bred by Widden Stud in partnership and is the second winner for Debutante (GB), a half-sister to three European stakes-winners that were all successful at 2000 to 2400 metres.
Making it a double was four year-old gelding Bring Luck, who scored for the same trainers over 1900 metres and has now won three of 18 starts with seven minor placings earning over $90,000 in prizemoney.
A $40,000 Inglis Easter Session II purchase, Bring Luck was also re-offered at the NZB Ready to Run Sale where he made $200,000 when bought by his trainers from the Mana Park draft.
Bring Luck is the second winner for Pride of Africa, a half-sister to the dam of dual Group I winner Rebel Raider.
