Sebring Juvenile Quinella at Sandown
Promising Sebring colts Revolving Door and Seaburge kicked right away from their rivals at Sandown on Wednesday with less than a length between them at the finish, but more than four lengths back to the next horse.
An easy winner on debut at Pakenham, the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig trained Seaburge was favourite, but he couldn’t quite catch Revolving Door, who was also having his second start following an excellent debut fourth in the Group III MRC Blue Diamond Prelude.
Both lightly raced colts were emergencies for the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes this Saturday, but have gained some consolation here and shown the talent to measure up to stakes company in the near future.
Prepared by Clinton McDonald, Revolving Door was a $200,000 Inglis Easter purchase for his trainer from the Edinburgh Park draft and is a half-brother to this season’s Group III placed three year-old Golden Spin.
Bred by Ian Smith, Golden Spin and Revolving Door are the first two foals for stakes-placed Anabaa (USA) mare Turnstiles, a daughter of Group III winner Zabeels Angel.
Sebring has a raft of talented types stepping up at present including Egypt, Tulsa and Mount Panorama, the Golden Slipper winning sire well represented at Inglis Premier with 19 entries.
