Maiden win for Sebring’s little sister

Peter and Paul Snowden have a stable full of well-bred fillies including the three year-old full sister to Golden Slipper winner Sebring, who broke her maiden at Hawkesbury on Thursday.

Second at her first two starts last preparation when running into smart types River Wild and Way Too Good, Falkenberg emerged a stronger filly with a break behind her and took the 1400 metre maiden by a length and a half.

She cruised across from an outside gate to travel in second for Kerrin McEvoy and then kicked away to win in good style.

Starting the race favoruite, she accounted for her nearest competitors bounding away with a one and a half-length victory over Macavity.

“She’s an above average filly on the way up and that was a good solid win.

“It’s a great way to end the day,” said Paul Snowden.

Owned by George Altomonte’s Corumbene Stud, the daughter of More Than Ready out of Purespeed will be aimed at the Group 3 Keith Nolan at Kembla Grange on March 11 before hopefully progress onto bigger races during the carnival as she is entered for the Group I ATC Queen of the Turf Stakes and Australian Oaks.

Falkenberg is full-sister to multiple Group 1 winner and Champion Sire Sebring (More Than Ready), as well as the Group 2 winner Pureness (Tale Of The Cat).

She is the fifth winner for Flying Spur mare Purespeed, who produced another colt by Sebring’s sire More Than Ready (USA) last spring and was subsequently covered by another Golden Slipper winner in Sepoy.
