Slipper Winning Sires Combine for G3 Winner
Much missed Widden Stud based Golden Slipper winning sires Sebring and Stratum combined to produce 5YO mare Bring the Ransom, who scored a surprise win in the Group III Dark Jewel Classic at Scone on Saturday.
A rail-hugging ride by Tyler Schiller paved the way for the Bjorn Baker trained Bring The Ransom to open her stakes account in exciting fashion.
She scored by a length at her sixth black-type attempt having previously come closest when second to More Prophets in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes at Wyong last September.
Retained to race by her breeders, Bring the Ransom advances her record to eight wins, two seconds, and two thirds from 29 starts, with earnings of $516,050.
The daughter of Sebring is the lone winner from two to race from stakes-placed Stratum mare Gold Epona, a granddaughter of the Group I VATC One Thousand Guineas winner Shizu.
Bring the Ransom is the 76th stakes-winner for Sebring and is his seventh in Australia this season.
