Group 1-winning son of Dundeel
First Caulfield Guineas winner to stand in NZ in 30 years
Service Fee $35,000 + GST (LFG)
Brilliant talent, exceptional turn of foot, good looks and a quality pedigree – these are the attributes that underpin the making of a successful stallion and Waikato Stud have just that in Super Seth.
His imposing career on the racetrack was headlined by a dazzling victory in the G1 Caulfield Guineas, with the son of Dundeel striking a chord early when winning his first two juvenile starts, including a 6l victory on debut. He returned as 3-year-old to win the G3 McNeil Stakes before defeating boom Queenslander Alligator Blood in the Caulfield Guineas. Resuming after a spell, he then added the Gr.3 Manfred Stakes to his winning record before finishing runner-up against the older horses in the G1 Futurity Stakes.
Super Seth is from the first crop of outstanding young sire Dundeel, whose start to stud has seen
him produce four Group 1 winners to date; a record only bettered by Champions Danehill and his damsire Redoute’s Choice. He is a son of Salutations, who is a daughter of the G2 Yallambee Classic winner Toast Of The Coast, making him a half-brother to multiple stakes winner Wild Planet. The next dams Solo Show and Solo Performance are also Group winners, highlighting that his pedigree matches the credentials he displayed on the racetrack.
Super Seth was sold by co-breeder Arrowfield Stud through its 2018 draft at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale with Dean Hawthorne signing the ticket on behalf of Jonathan Munz’s GSA Bloodstock. Hawthorne commented, “He is perfectly balanced – if you take a look at his yearling conformation photo you can see he is a short-coupled colt with a great head and amazing quality.”
Top of our list when it comes to sourcing a successful stallion is a turn of foot and Super Seth’s acceleration was mind-blowing. Our past and present Champion Sires Centaine, O’Reilly, Pins, Savabeel and Ocean Park all possessed incredible acceleration, but even they couldn’t have matched Super Seth’s turn of foot. That’s the quality we look for in a successful stallion and he demonstrated that on many occasions.
Super Seth attracted a high-quality, full book of 130 mares for his 2020 debut season, with more than half being black-type performers or producers of such. This trend continued for his second season, as breeders were delighted with the quality of his foals.
A striking son of Dundeel, whose own progeny sold for up to $1.7 million at the 2022 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Super Seth’s first crop of yearlings will debut at the sales in 2023.
Super Seth’s service fee for 2022 is $35,000 plus GST, live foal guarantee.
