Smart Win for Sebring Colt
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday July 4
It always looked a strong maiden event at Canterbury on Wednesday for juvenile colts and geldings and the winner emerged as Sebring colt Master Ash, who carried the colours of Teeley Assets to victory.

Master Ash as a yearlingSecond on debut at Kembla last month, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Master Ash showed good improvement out of that run and off a wide gate pressed forward to lead throughout and score a three-quarter length win.

"He switched on a lot from that first-up run," Adrian Bott said. "Down at Kembla he was a little bit slow to begin and over the 1000m and got run off his feet.
"That natural improvement today and when Tim Clark made the move on him, he responded and put them away quickly."

A $170,000 Magic Millions purchase for his trainers from the Element Hill draft, Master Ash runs in the ownership of Teeley Assets, for whom Gai Waterhouse has achieved Group I success in the past with horses such as Manhattan Rain and Platinum Scissors.

Master Ash is a half-brother to stakes-winners Come Hither and Fun in Flight and is the sixth winner from Group II placed Hanky Panky, a half-sister by Anabaa (USA) to leading sire Not a Single Doubt from the famed Easy Date family.

Master Ash is the 14th two year-old winner this season by Sebring, who stands at Widden Stud this spring at a fee of $66,000.
