Sebring Stars At Scone Carnival

The two-day Scone carnival provided Golden Slipper winner Sebring with a notable stakes double.

Sebring was responsible for Friday’s Listed Scone Cup winner Sedanzar and backed up with his impressive 2YO filly Pretty In Pink stamping her class on Saturday’s Listed Woodlands Stakes.

The John O’Shea-trained Pretty In Pink Horseform (Sebring x Total Attraction by Nadeem) preserved her unbeaten record to provide her sire with his 43rd stakes winner.

The two-year-old was bred by Kevin Maloney’s Segenhoe Stud and was retained to race after she was passed in at $275,000 at the Sydney Easter sale.

She made a winning debut at Gosford and O’Shea said she will now head for a break.

"She looks to be special," O'Shea said. "She's got the will to be a racehorse. She's a nice filly with a bright future and we'll look after her now."

The Woodlands Stakes was target race for Pretty In Pink as Segenhoe Thoroughbreds sponsored the race.

Pretty in Pink is the first winner from the G2 placed Total Attraction, a Nadeem mare purchased by Segenhoe for $220,000 at the 2013 Australian Broodmare Sale.

Scone Cup winner Sedanzer Horseform (Sebring x Voltdanze) was a $125,000 purchase from the Magic Millions by Blueblood Thoroughbreds and has won sseven of her 16 starts for prizemoney of more than $585,000.

She was bred by Three Bridges in partnership with Richard Pegum from Voltdanze, dam of three winners including the stakes-placed So Detached.

Voltdanze is a three-quarter sister to G1 winner Dealer Principal.

MOSSMAN filly Moss Trip produced a dazzling turn of foot to win the $400,000 Scone Guineas for her fifth win from 10 career starts.

A $32,000 yearling buy for her owners Triple Crown Syndications, Moss Trip may now head to Brisbane where her target will be the G1 Tatt’s Tiara at Doomben on June 23.

“That devastating turn of foot is beginning to be a trademark of hers, it’s just electric,’’ said trainer Peter Snowden.

Moss Trip Horseform (Mossman x Space Trip by Stratum) tolok her career earnings to $423,535 with her Guineas win.

She is out of the unraced mare Space Trip, a half-sister to G3 Liverpool City Cup winner Triple Elegance (Mossman).

Her second dam is the G2 placed Mary Machree (Quest For Fame), whose stakes-winning half-sister Hy Fuji (Fuji Kiseki) is the dam of dual G1 winner and sire Kermadec (Teofilo).

This family includes G3 winner Shoreham (Reset) and stakes winners Hysterical (Wolverton) and At The Heads (Hussonet).

Moss Trip won the G3 James Carr Stakes at Randwick at her previous start.

STRATUM, another Golden Slipper winner who stood with Sebring at Widden Stud until his death in 2016, sired Saturday’s G3 SA Sires Produce Stakes winner Tequila Time.

Trained by Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas, Tequila Time Horseform (Stratum x El Milagro by Encopsta De Lago) recorded his fourth successive win since he resumed from a spell on March 24 and his second Group win after his success in the G3 SAJC Breeders Stakes at his previous start.

Macdonald and Gluyas purchased Tequila Time for $170,000 at the Magic Millions Adelaide yearling sale.

He is one of 39 stakeswinners by Stratum and is among the four winners produced by his dam El Milagro.

THE James Cummings-trained 4YO Osborne Bulls landed his first stakes win in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes at Scone to provide the late Street Cry with his 118th stakes winner.

Darley homebred Osborne Bulls Horseform (Street Cry x Jerezana by Lonhro) has now won seven races and has never finished out of the first three in his 10 career starts.

Street Cry died of complications relating to a neurological condition in 2014, aged 16.

WYONG trainer Tracey Bartley prepared two excellent stakeswinners at the Scone carnival that are destined for better things.

The 3YO filly In Good Time Horseform, a daughter of the Redoute’s Choice sire Time Thief, extended her unbeaten record to six wins with her win in the Lisyted Denise’s Joy Stakes.

In Good Time (Time Thief x Turbo Rose by Strategic) is the fifth stakes winner for her sire who was exported to South Africa in 2015.

She was purchased by Bartley from her breeder, the retired trainer Bernie Howlett, for only $10,000.

Bartley says To Excess Horseform, winner of the Listed Ortensia Stakes, could be his best horse since his multiple G1 winner Sniper’s Bullet.

To Excess (Duporth x Montclair by Rock of Gibraltar) cost $60,000 as a yearling and is the fifth stakes winner for his sire.

Bartley also won Friday’s Scone 2YO Challenge with Bare Naked Lady Horseform (Walking Or Dancing).
