After a hugely successful first season covering over 140 mares, including multiple G1 winning Bonneval (Makfi x Imposingly) and Daffodil (No Excuse Needed x Spring), we’re super excited to see Super Seth’s first crop of foals hit the ground this season! 🤩
Super Seth’s dazzling racing career started early when he won his first two juvenile starts. Returning as a 3YO to win the G3 McNeil Stakes, he followed his magnificent victory with another impressive performance in the G1 Caulfield Guineas defeating then unbeaten Alligator Blood. 

He then added the G3 Manfred Stakes to his winning record before finishing runner-up against older horses in the G1 Futurity Stakes. 

Super Seth is the first G1 Caulfield Guineas winner to stand in New Zealand in three decades.
With his quality pedigree and remarkably good looks, Super Seth is set for an exciting stallion career at Waikato Stud. 

Out of the first crop of outstanding sire Dundeel, he shares the same broodmare sire as Zoustar, Redoute’s Choice. 

“He fits the exact mould of previous success. He’s the complete package.” Mark Chittick
