The stallion future of SESAR has been secured with the dual Group winning colt to stand at Aquis Farm following his racing career.
Previously raced in partnership, Aquis have increased its ownership to 100 percent of the colt, with an agreement to lease him back to the Proven Thoroughbreds syndicate until his retirement from the racetrack.
A winner of his third start in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) over eventual Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winner BOOMSARA with LEAN MEAN MACHINE in third, SESAR ended his juvenile career with a solid fourth in the Group 1 JJ Atkins Plate (1600m), just on two lengths from THE AUTUMN SUN and ZOUSAIN, with that pair going on to finish one-two in the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m).
Resuming for his 3YO season, SESAR was all class in the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m), showing an outstanding turn of foot to come from off the pace to defeat SANDBAR by over a length in a performance that saw the colt join previous Roman Consul winners BRAZEN BEAU, ZOUSTAR, FOXWEDGE, FASTNET ROCK and EXCEED AND EXCEL.
After a run in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes in Melbourne the colt was sent to the paddock for a spell before connections elected to bypass the Autumn 3YO campaign and focus on the Spring riches.
As Proven Thoroughbreds is no longer the managing owner of the horse, SESAR will henceforth race under the Aquis banner, accordingly carry Aquis’ sky blue silks, and be trained by team Hawkes at Rosehill.
Proven Thoroughbreds would like to take this opportunity to wish Aquis Farm all the best in their latest stallion venture and we look forward to hopefully buying some of his progeny in years to come.
SESAR was purchased by Proven Thoroughbreds director Jamie Walter and Steve O’Dea Racing at the 2017 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale for $160,000.
