Proven Thoroughbreds’ sole purchase at last week’s Inglis Easter Sale evoked memories of when our top-class colt SESAR stepped into the ring as a yearling.
It was at the same sale two years ago when Proven Thoroughbreds bid to $160,000 to take home the SEBRING x SARTHEMARE colt, who would later win Group races at two and three under the moniker of SESAR for Proven Thoroughbreds and trainer
So, naturally we have been on a quest to find another horse of similar qualities ever since.
At the 2019 Inglis Easter Sale another of SEBRING’s progeny caught our eye, lot 197.
SEBRING x PROGRESSIVE filly is a more robust version of SESAR at the same age but more importantly has the same potent cross of SEBRING over STREET CRY.
The only other example of this cross has produced another stakes winner by the name of MISS ADMIRATION.
Proven Thoroughbreds was fortunate enough to secure the filly for $90,000 – a price both Jamie Walter and trainer-in-waiting Steve O’Dea deemed to be tremendous value – especially considering the dam PROGRESSIVE won four from 11 for Godolphin and hails from the family of REDOUTE’S CHOICE, MANHATTAN RAIN, PLATINUM SCISSORS, AL MAHER, HURRICANE SKY & SHOALS.
Sadly, SEBRING is no longer with us, but he has left an indelible mark on the Australian breeding landscape and will continue to do so as his future crops hit the racetrack.
Proven has raced five of his progeny to date for two stakes winners (SESAR & CANDIKA) and a multiple Sydney metropolitan winner (ARGENT D’OR).
As a show of faith in the breed, Proven Thoroughbreds has another seven SEBRING youngsters approaching their racetrack debuts.
