Denise Martin enjoyed her greatest race success to date, when her handsome chestnut colt SEBRING crossed the line a well deserved winner in the 2008 Group 1 AAMI GOLDEN SLIPPER. The Star Thoroughbreds SEBRING owners enjoyed a day they will remember for a lifetime.
With regular jockey Blake Shinn on the suspended list Glen Boss scored the coveted ride. After missing the start and settling well back the colt was quickly sent forward by Boss along the fence, eventually settling three back in the running line. He travelled sweetly into the turn and all he needed on straightening was a clear run. Half way up the straight the gap appeared and SEBRING did the rest, sprinting quickly to dash through and grab Group 1 winning honours in the world's greatest 2 year old race!
Sebring, unbeaten in four starts, was purchased by Denise Martin for $143,000 (inc GST) at the 2007 Magic Millions Sale and has now won an amazing $2,178,800 in prizemoney.
