Super Seth (AUS)
Breeding: Dundeel - Salutations by Redoute's Choice
Standing at: Waikato Stud, NZ
Group 1 winner Super Seth (Dundeel) will stand at Waikato Stud for an introductory fee of NZ$35,000 (plus GST) in 2020, joining fellow Group 1 winner Castelvecchio - who is also embarking on his first season in the breeding barn - as the only sons of Dundeel (High Chaparral) to stand at stud.
Super Seth retired from racing the winner of five of his 12 career starts with earnings of $1,648,460.
Trained by Anthony Freedman, he broke his maiden on debut at Ballarat over 1200 metres in March 2019, scoring by six lengths and then won over the same distance at his second start the following month. He would have one more start at two, finishing third in the Anzac Day Stakes (Listed, 1400m) at Flemington.
Resuming at three, Super Seth won the HDF McNeil Stakes (Gr 3, 1200m) last August and then three starts later defeated subsequent Group 1 winner Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) in the Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m).
On news of Super Seth's retirement trainer Anthony Freedman said: "It's sad to lose a horse of such quality from our stable, especially knowing the potential he had to win more at the top level as a four-year-old.
"But his credentials for stud are impressive and the uncertainty around upcoming race programs made it difficult to keep him in training."
Super Seth was purchased as a yearling by Dean Hawthorne for $280,000 at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud on behalf of Jonathan Munz's GSA Bloodstock.
He is one of three winners out of the Redoute's Choice (Danehill) mare Salutations, making him a half-brother to multiple Listed winner Wild Planet (Animal Kingdom). His second dam is Group 2 winner Toast Of The Coast (Rory's Jester) who is herself out of fellow Group 2 winner Solo Show (Dahar).
