Segenhoe’s Pretty In Pink – One To Watch At Gosford
$1million Written Tycoon colt King will have to wait for another day to break his maiden after being thumped by Segenhoe’s Sebring filly, Pretty In Pink at Gosford on ANZAC Day.
A homebred for Segenhoe Thoroughbreds prepared by John O’Shea, Pretty in Pink won her only previous trial at Warwick Farm earlier this month and stepped it up a notch again for this assignment.
She travelled midfield for Jeff Penza in the 1000 metre juvenile maiden and had not trouble running straight past King to score a dominant two and a half length win.
Passed in shy of her $275,000 reserve by Segenhoe at Inglis Easter, Pretty on Pink is the first winner for Group II placed Nadeem mare Total Attraction, who comes from the family of dual Cox Plate winner Fields of Omagh.
