Sebring Installed Favourite to be Leading First Season Sire
August 27 – 2008 Golden Slipper and Sires Produce winner Sebring has been installed a short priced favourite with Sportingbet Australia to be the most successful first season sire of the 2012-13 season by individual winners.
Sebring is listed at $1.65, with Northern Meteor next in the market at $2.50.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said it’s shaping up to be the best crop of freshman sires since Fastnet Rock.
“The showdown between Sebring and Northern Meteor will be an intriguing contest as from all reports their progeny are cracking types and they were both early runners on the track themselves,” Sullivan said.
Both young stallions have large numbers of entries for the Golden Slipper and Blue Diamond, so we will be hoping the Sportingbet prediction of a close race between these two young guns comes to pass.
