Sebring Fires Up With Another Stakes-Winner
Red hot sire Sebring posted his fourth stakes-winner since the start of the month when talented three year-old Interspersed claimed the $120,000 Listed Canberra Guineas on Sunday.
The Sam Kavanagh trained filly was having just her fourth race start and did best in a competitive finish to win the 1400 metre feature by half a neck over blue-blooded Redoute’s Choice duo Lorna May and Liberty’s Choice.
Interspersed was a $145,000 Inglis Easter purchase for her trainer from the draft of Highgrove Stud and runs for a large group of owners for whom she has already won over $99,000 in prizemoney.
“She one of the first horses I bought. I went to the Easter sales and specked her without clients,” revealed an emotional Sam Kavanagh.
“My uncle was the first person to go into her and he’s come back from overseas today to watch her so it’s a massive thrill.
“To buy a horse in your first year at the sales and come away with a stakes win is a massive thrill.”
She is the best of three winners from Scattered, an unraced half-sister by Tale of the Cat (USA) to Group I winner Wanted and Group II winner Shrapnel.
The current yearling from Scattered, a three-quarter sister-in-blood to Wanted by Fastnet Rock, will be offered by Highgrove Stud at Inglis Easter this year as Lot 194.
Interspersed continues a hot run of success for Sebring, who is also the sire of recent stakes-winners Clifton Red (Group III VRC Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes), Dissident (Group II ATC Hobartville Stakes) and Bring Me the Maid (Listed VRC Sports 1000 Stakes).
Interspersed becomes the seventh stakes-winner for Sebring, who has 21 entries for 2014 Inglis Easter.
