Sparkling Run From Sequin

Sequin took her game to a higher level at Te Rapa on Saturday when she left a hot field of Rating 75 sprinters in her wake and with no excuses. The four-year-old bounded straight to the front and, after easing clear on the turn for rider Michael Coleman, she was never threatened in the straight for a convincing victory.

“It was a very good effort in a strong field,” Matamata trainer Graham Richardson said. “Last time out she was a bit unlucky when she had a niggle in the gates and she’s really is a front-running horse.” Sequin had finished seventh at her previous appoearance at Ellerslie where she was tardy out of the barrier.

Bred and raced by WS, she is a daughter of Pins and the Listed Rotorua Stakes winner Glitzy and a sister to mutliple winner and Gr 3 Hawkesbury Cup placegetter Glintz. “We’ll keep her going now until the weather turns completely,” said Richardson, who believes Sequin can add black-type to her record of four wins in the future.
