Valuable Win for Sebring Mare
A half-sister to this season’s Group II winning three year-old Russian Revolution, well-bred Sebring mare Turbo Miss boosted her worth immeasurably with a brave win in the Group III VRC Frances Tressady Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.
The Darren Weir trained mare was fit and ready to fire at her third run back from a spell and scored a long neck win over Group I winner Rising Romance in the 1400 metre mares contest.
It was her first attempt at Black type and the win takes her overall record to five wins from 17 starts with prizemoney topping $180,000.
Retained to race by her breeders John Stuart Investments, Turbo Miss is the second stakes-winner and one of four winners from Ballet D’Amour (USA), an imported daughter of Stravinsky.
She traces back to legendary matriarch Fanfreluche, so Turbo Miss will be a most appealing broodmare prospect when her racing days are done.
Turbo Miss is the 24th stakes-winner for Widden Stud’s flagship sire Sebring, who has a phenomenal draft of 35 for the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale next month, see them here.
