Segenhoe Easter Stars to Shine - Part One

Last year Segenhoe Stud had the honour of providing the top seller at the 2016 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.
 
The half-brother by Snitzel to Australian Horse of the Year Winx sold for $2.3million and while the Segenhoe draft this year has no sibling to Australia's favourite racehorse, there is nevertheless a top class selection of 13 cracking youngsters on offer from a vendor on the rise.

Segenhoe Stud is now in the ownership of Kevin Maloney with renowned horseman Peter O'Brien at the helm and had its first yearling draft at Inglis Easter 2014, with an impressive 28% of the yearlings offered that year emerging as Group winners.

Segenhoe place the emphasis on producing athletes first and with the oldest graduates from the farm now four year-olds, the list of notable performers is a fast growing and impressive honour roll.

Segenhoe star performers include Group I winner Eagle Way, Group II winner Ektifaa, Group III winner El Divino, Group III winner Serene Majesty, plus promising three year olds Petition , Manuel , Canalasso, Waterloo Sunset and Clockwork Orange . 

The current crop of two year olds include stakes-winner Madenaaty and promising types Villa Carlotta, Borooj, Legal Girl, Taking Aim, Longmu and Ciaron Maher's impressive debut winner Merchant Navy.
