Supido | Racing and Sports

Group 3 winner Supido (Aus) (Sebring {Aus}–Lady Succeed {Jpn}, by Brian’s Time) has been purchased by Widden Stud, the stud announced on Monday. A winner of the G3 Monash S. in July of 2017, the Michael Kent trainee also ran third in the 2016 G1 Goodwood H. and filled the same position in the G2 Challenge S. He currently sports a mark of 17-7-1-2 and earnings of $428,106 and will continue to race through the Brisbane Winter Carnival with the existing ownership.

“He is a naturally fast, straight track sprinter, a trait shared with a number of our leading sires such as Fastnet Rock (Aus), Exceed And Excel (Aus), General Nediym (Aus), Northern Meteor (Aus) and Zoustar (Aus), said Widden’s Antony Thompson. “We feel Supido will suit a large number of Danehill/Danzig line mares particularly given almost 50% of Sebring’s stakes horses are from this sireline and we have no doubt breeders will be equally impressed once they see him in the flesh.”

Added trainer Mick Kent, “The jock’s I’ve had with me for over a decade just come back white in the face after they’ve ridden him. He can run sectionals you just wouldn’t think are possible and I’m not a trainer that asks my horses to break the clock.”

Bred by Gilgai Farm, the 6-year-old was purchased by Kent out of the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale for A$190,000. His second dam is the French Group 2 winner and Classic placed Hydro Calido (Nureyev), a half-sister to French highweights Coup de Genie (Mr. Prospector) and Machiavellian (Mr. Prospector), as well as G1SW Exit To Nowhere (Irish River {Fr}) and GSW & G1SP Ocean of Wisdom (Mr. Prospector).

A fee will be announced later.
