Sebring's Supply And Demand Captures Caloundra Cup
Mark Smith - Saturday, 1 July 2017

David Henderson would have few regrets in outlaying $170,000 for the proven broodmare Demanding at the 2011 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.

Already the dam of stakes winners Spacecraft (Galileo) and Phenomenons (Giant's Causeway), Demanding (Octagonal) was carrying a colt by Commands at the time of the sale.

Henderson sold that colt, subsequently named Washington Heights, for $300,000. Placed in the Group III San Domenico Stakes and Group III Kindergarten Stakes, Washington Heights raced successfully in Hong Kong.

The following season, Demanding visited Sebring at Widden Stud, the result being Supply And Demand who became the third stakes winner for his dam when leading every step of the way in Saturday's $175,000 Listed Caloundra Cup (1400m) at the Sunshine Coast.

It was the third consecutive win for the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained 4yo gelding who ventured north after a pair of wins at Rosehill.

Sent straight to the front by Josh Parr, Supply And Demand led at every call to defeat My Diamantine (Eighth Wonder) by one and a quarter lengths with War Baby (Warhead) three-quarter of a length back in third.

"He won at 1800 metres at Rosehill and we were a bit worried about him at that distance. Then we stepped him up to 2000 metres and again there was a question he would run it," stable representative Neil Paine told AAP.

"Supply and Demand won both of those races and we stepped him up to 2400 metres, which was again a question."

"He isn't built like a stayer but he is all heart."

Purchased by G Waterhouse/J Harron/Round Table Racing for $170,000 at the 2014 Inglis Easter Australian Yearling Sale, Supply And Demand advances his record to 6 wins, 4 seconds and 2 thirds from16 starts with earnings of $422,735.

He is the tenth foal of the winning Octagonal mare Demanding whose stakes-winning dam Winged Prayer ( Charmande) is a half-sister to Golden Slipper winner Tierce.

Demanding has a yearling filly by Epaulette who was purchased by David Raphael for $60,000 at the Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.

She missed to Wandjina in 2015 and was covered by Real Impact (JPN) last spring.

Supply And Demand becomes the 30th stakes winner for Sebring who will stand the forthcoming season at Widden Stud for a fee of $66,000.
