Well-related mare too good

Well-related mare too good9 Apr 2022

A potent international pedigree was to the fore when Sebring’s daughter Gone With The Wind produced a tidy performance to win over 1560 metres at Rotorua.

The homebred four-year-old was purchased out of our Karaka draft in 2019 by bloodstock agent Bruce Perry for $60,000 and is out of the winning Sadler’s Wells mare Dance On By.

She is a sister to the multiple Group 1 winner and champion sire High Chaparral and the G2 Dante Stakes winner Black Bear island.

The G1 French Oaks winner Fancy Blue and the G2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup winner Hunting Horn are also family members.

Gone With The Wind began her career from Andrew Carston’s Riccarton stable for owners the Murray family and gained black type when placed at Listed level in the Dunedin and Southland Guineas.

She then relocated to Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott and opened her winning account from Wexford Stables at Arawa Park where she was caught wide early before settling one off in fifth spot.

Rider Masa Hashizume had Gone With The Wind into the clear at the top of the straight and the mare finished powerfully to score by a head.
