$1.4 million for Sebring Colt
The 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale delivered a new benchmark for our flagship sire Sebring, who posted his first seven figure yearling when his stunning colt from Stellar Vinnia made $1.4 million foe Segenhoe Thoroughbreds.
A three-quarter brother to South African Group II winner Ektifaa, he was bred by Fairway Thoroughbreds and bought by Spendthrift Australia.
“He was one of the picks of the sale for us and we are happy to now have him in the stable,” Spendthrift Australia’s Gary Cuddy told ANZ Bloodstock News.
“He is by one of the best stallions in the country and he is one of the best moving horses that we saw all week. We waited a long time to get him but we are very happy to have him now.
“Hopefully he will make a good stallion in the long-term.”
Sebring had 25 yearlings sell in Book One at an average $339,800.
His top priced filly at $800,000 was a lovely chestnut youngster from National Anthem that was consigned by Milburn Creek and bought by James Harron Bloodstock.
She comes with a big pedigree being from a half-sister to champion sprinter Starspangledbanner and to the dam of Group I winner Amicus.
