The LISTED $200,000 Darley Scone Cup was won today by progressive Sebring mare, Sedanzer, a $125,000 Magic Millions purchase for Blueblood Thoroughbreds from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft.
Trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Sedanzer has always promised to win a stakes races and kept her unbeaten second up from a spell record intact when outgunning last year’s winner, Duca Valentinois to win the 1600 metre feature by a neck with Tim Clark in the saddle.
“She was a bit plain at Hawkesbury (first up in the Godolphin Crown), so it was a great effort by Gai and Adrian to turn her around,” said Tim Clark.
“She appreciated more ground and she has a great will to win. She pinned her ears back and was determined.”
“She was really on song today.”
Sedanzer has done an outstanding job for one of Australia’s leading Syndicator’s, BLUEBLOOD THOROUGHBREDS and has the overall record of seven wins from just 16 starts, with prizemoney topping $585,000.
Sedanzer is a half-sister to stakes-placed, So Detached and is one of three winners from Voltdanze, a three-quarter sister to Group 1 winner, Dealer Principal.
Sedanzer has now booked herself a trip to the Brisbane carnival where it looks like more success in big time racing is in front of her and her Syndicator. Congratulations to all the connections of Sedanzer.
