Bluebloods : April 2010
GEORGE ALTOMONTE's Corumbene Stud, the breeder of Golden Slipper hero and $2.5m earner Sebring, will take a high quality draft of nine yearlings to Easter. Included is a half-sister to Sebring, the $130,000 yearling who won the 2008 STC Golden Slipper Gr.1, then followed that up with another winning performance in the AJC Sires Produce-Gr.1 for his Star Thoroughbred syndicate, and went within a whisker of taking out the 2YO Triple Crown when a narrow second to Samantha Miss in the Champagne Stakes. Now standing at Widden Stud, having served his first book of mares in 2009, Sebring is the type of horse everyone dreams of owning - and it all started at Corumbene. The stud's draft of nine comprises six fillies and three colts beginning with Lot 114, a chestnut filly by Choisir from the Flying Spur mare Purespeed, the dam of Sebring. This filly's pedigree is dominated by Golden Slipper speed lines. She carries a 3mx3m duplication of Danehill and is linebred to his third dam Natalma through daughter Spring Adieu and son Northern Dancer. Her bloodlines will be prized when she retires as a broodmare and she is certainly bred to be a very fast two year-old. Lot 242, a bay or brown filly by Exceed and Excel from the Anabaa mare Vestabaa, also carries duplication of Natalma (5m,5f,5mx5m,6m) through Spring Adieu and Northern Dancer. Her dam is a half-sister to the stakes winner Rutherford Eagle, and the catalogue page is littered with black type. Second dam Vestey (Last Tycoon) won the Port Adelaide Cup-Gr.3. Lot 248, a bay or brown filly by Elusive Quality from the Flying Spur stakeswinning mare Wager, is a half-sister to the talented We Betcha, a winner on debut in Sydney. There are a number of interesting duplications in this filly's pedigree and it's a long-time Corumbene family (third dam being Black Opal- Gr.3 winner Marks Gain), notably she has Somethingroyal 5m,6mx7m through Secretariat and Sir Gaylord, Flower Bowl 6mx6m through Graustark and His Majesty and Natalma 5mx6m,6f through Northern Dancer and Spring Adieu. She also has Mr. Prospector 3mx4f and Sir Ivor 4fx5f,6m. Lot 303, a grey filly by Danzero from the Rory's Jester mare Baranbali (a full sister to Permai, the dam of Permaiscuous), is only the second foal of her dam. Third dam Tynia won the Edward Maniforld-Gr.2. A great dual purpose prospect. Lot 367 is a bay colt by Flying Spur from the 2YO-winning Zabeel mare Dame Cath. This colt is a half-brother to Gr.3 winner Red Lord and the promising Mantova. He hails from the family of Surround, Balmerino, Purple Patch, Fulmen and Gay Filou. Lot 408, a chestnut filly by More Than Ready from the Fasliyev mare Esther (Gr. 2 placed in the STC Silver Slipper), is the third foal of her dam. Her grandam is a sister to the Champion 2YO Burst (Golden Slipper). There are some significant duplications in her pedigree: Almahmoud 5f,6fx6f through Cosmah and Natalma; Glamour 6fx5m through Intriguing and Boucher, and Mr. Prospector 4mx4f. Lot 465, a bay colt by Flying Spur, is out of the very good Snippets mare Hasna, who was an outstanding 2YO, winning two Gr.1 events. His half-sister Hades ((a $1.5m yearling) is already a city winner. He carries an important 5fx5f Rasmussen factor duplication of the mare Ciboulette through Fanfreluche and American Legacy. He also has a 5m,5f,6mx6m duplication of Natalma through Spring Adieu and Northern Dancer. Lot 589, a bay colt by Elusive Quality from the Quest for Fame mare Proclaim, is a half-brother to Espousal and Diktat. His second dam is Flitter (Champion Australian Racemare 1994) and his third dam Kiwi Magic was a three times winner and stakes placed. Lot 613, a brown filly by Hussonet from the Western Australian Oaks-Gr.2 winner Superior Star (Nothin' Leica Dane), carries duplications of Sir Tristram, Northern Dancer, Sir Ivor, Sir Gaylord, Native Dancer, and Nearco in her classic pedigree. Her sire Hussonet has already produced 124 stakes performers from his 468 individual winners, and boasts a winners to runners ratio of 70.6% with his ratio of stakes performers to starters a very impressive 10.3%. The Corumbene draft can be located in Stable 1 Row D at the Newmarket sales complex at Randwick.
