Sebring Colt Wins G2 Sandown Guineas
Few racehorses are blessed with the withering burst of acceleration so ably demonstrated by Sebring’s exciting three-year-old son Ringerdingding in Saturday’s Group II MRC Sandown Guineas (1600m).
Coming off a win in the Listed Springtime Stakes at Flemington last week, the Darren Weir trained Ringerdingding stormed home from the tail of the field to defeat Group I winning filly Seabrook by three-quarters of a length.
The Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington next March has been pencilled in for Ringerdingding who advances his record to four wins and two placings from 12 starts with earnings of $347,295.
“He is a bit heart in the mouth I suppose because he gets back and lets rip late,” Weir said.
“He took all of the straight to get them and going forward he is a beauty.
“Now he’s got to be targeted towards the Australian Guineas, he is definitely the sort of horse that should be heading to that race.”
A $170,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft for B2B Bloodstock, Ringerdingding was bred by Three Bridges in partnership as they purchased her dam Maybe I through Paul Willetts for $120,000 at the Inglis Broodmare Sale in 2015.
Ringerdingding is a half-brother to this season’s stakes-placed two year-old Salome and is the second winner for Group III placed Red Ransom (USA) mare Maybe I, a grand-daughter of dual Group I winner Flitter.
Now with B2B Bloodstock, Maybe I was covered by Ringerdingding’s sire Sebring last year and has produced a colt.
Sebring has 42 yearlings catalogued for the 2019 Magic Millions.
