Seabrook: She Was a Star From Day One

By Brad Gray
At Royal Randwick

Big eyes. Big ears. Big engine.

Pat Kearney knew Seabrook was a special filly the moment she walked into Mick Price’s Caulfield yard as a yearling. How right he was.

The Hinchinbrook youngster sprinted quickly to take out the $500,000 G1 Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes (1600m), reeling in Bondi with the luckless El Dorado Dreaming running third.

“The first time she walked into the stables I said to Mick ‘I am looking after this horse’. I’ve had her from the start,” Kearney said, who rides all of her work.

“She has got those big ears and big eyes and I love horses like that. She is really nice but doesn’t like other horses.”

After what looked a fair run in the Sire’s Produce last start, the easy decision would have been to send Seabrook to the paddock.

“She is such a tough filly. We have worked hard with her and she has been a bit of work but it was a very deserving win for this horse,” Kearney said.

“She just kept progressing throughout her campaign. I rode her the day after she ran in the Sires’ and I told Mick that she has pulled up exactly the same as she was going into the Slipper.

“She’s got so much more improvement to come. Hopefully we’ll have a nice three-year-old.”

 

It was a brilliant ride from Damien Oliver who, after settling last, hugged the fence before picking a path through the field at the 200m mark.

“I’ve always had a big opinion of this filly, she just hasn’t had things go quite right for her this preparation,” Oliver said.

“She has got a turn of foot and today she had the chance to show it.  Last start she really bungled the start, it was a bit puzzling actually, why she went so bad, but you had to forgive her for that one bad run, she really deserved that win today.

“She has always shown a touch of class and I think she’s got great things ahead of her.”
