A Well Deserved Maiden Stakes Win for Supido
Mark Smith - Saturday, 15 July 2017

There would be few more deserving winners of a stakes race than Supido who finally attained that goal in Saturday's Group III Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield.

The son of Sebring was third in Black Heart Bart's Group I Goodwood Handicap and also placed in the Group II Challenge Stakes at Randwick won by English.

The lightly entire came in to Saturday's race with a first-up record of four wins and a second from six starts.

Not everything went to plan in the run. With just two runners behind him on the home turn, Luke Nolen had to shoulder General Truce out of the way to set out after Daytona Grey who showed no sign of stopping under Claire Lindop.

Once he had to some clear air, Supido knuckled down, reeling in a stubborn Daytona Grey (Artie Schiller) to win by three-quarter of a length with Murt The Flirt (Murtajill) a fast finishing third. (photo Grant Courtney).

Trained by Mick Kent, Supido advances his overall record to 7 wins, 1 second and 2 thirds from 13 starts with earnings of $471,150.

"I think there is improvement in him but I think Mick Kent's team has done a really good job," Nolen said.

"It was a nice win today and hopefully he makes nice improvement on that. I was in an awkward spot but good horses can overcome that.

Bred by Rick Jamieson's Gilgai Farm, Supido was a $190,000 purchase by his trainer from the Three Bridges draft at the 2013 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

His dam Lady Succeed (JPN) is a daughter of the hugely successful Brian's Time from a family nurtured by the Niarchos family's Flaxman Holdings.

Lady Succeed (JPN) has an unraced 2yo colt by Smart Missile named Chisoku and a weanling filly by Sebring.

She missed to Sebring last spring.

Supido becomes the 31st stakes winner for Sebring who will stand at Widden Stud this spring at a fee of $66,000.
