Seabrook looked the winner 200m out after she turned into the straight and was holding Long Leaf at bay, only for future star Ringerdingding, to launch over the final 200 metres and win by only three-quarters of a length to Seabrook in 2nd.
Seabrook showed her class again by finishing second to an all colts and gelding race that has set her up well for the autumn where she will take on her on sex in the fillies Grp 1’s over the Sydney Championships. Mick Price confirm she will go out for a well-deserved spell now.
Seabrook had 5 starts this spring and added to her already impressive pedigree page by placing in 3 group races, 3rd in the Grp 3 McNeil Stakes, 2nd yesterday in the Grp 2 Sandown Guineas and a unlucky 3rd in the Grp 1 Thousand Guineas taking her overall price money to nearly $700,000 and her young 11 start career so far.
Damien Oliver described Seabrook’s second-placed finish as ‘another brave effort’.
“She’s a lovely filly that’s done really well this campaign, it’s a shame she hasn’t cracked it for a win in that time but she’s been very consistent,” Oliver said.
