Coolmore Stud Buy Reigning BTC Cup Winner Sea Siren

Just days before the John Sadler-trained Sea Siren defends her title in the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Eagle Farm this weekend the talented mare has officially been purchased by Coolmore Stud who could send her to the breeding barn following her winter preparation.

The four-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock has won six of her 13 career starts to date amassing over $1.5 million for her current connections, Coolmore finalising a reported $2 million deal with former WA-based owner Keith Biggs to snare the mare after she passed a veterinary inspection this week.

“It was a three-way contest and Coolmore have purchased her subject to a (second) vetting after she races (tomorrow),” Bloodstock agent James Bester said.

Sea Siren’s career started in excellent fashion when she won five of her opening eight career starts in Sydney and Brisbane including the Group 1 BTC Cup – Doomben 10,000 double last Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

She failed in last year’s Stradbroke Handicap however when ninth to upset winner Mid Summer Music before being turned out for a break.

Returning in the spring to become a triple Group 1 winner thanks to her brilliant first-up win over Mental in the Manikato Stakes success at Moonee Valley, Sea Siren then finished second when Mental turned the tables on her in the Patinack Farm Classic.

Connections then sent her on a tough international trip to Sha Tin where she ran a disappointing ninth to Lord Kanaloa in the Group 1 Hong Kong Sprint (1200m).

Currently Sea Siren is looking to return to her previous ace form after two below par runs this time in, the overseas’ campaign obviously taking her toll looking at her eighth in The Galaxy and her fifth to super mare Black Caviar in the TJ Smith Stakes.

Sea Siren gets another chance to score her third Group 1 trophy this Saturday when she takes on a smart field in the 2013 BTC Cup including champion local galloper Buffering looking for his first elite level success at attempt number 14 which will be her last run for Biggs.

“She will race in Keith’s colours this week and then revert to Coolmore ownership (on Monday),” Bester said of the mare who is out to become the first successive BTC Cup winner since Buck’s Pride in 1993-94.

Coolmore will then be listed as her official owners when she follows the BTC Cup by attempting back-to-back wins in the $500,000 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 25, Sadler to remain her trainer, before she runs her grand final in the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 8.

Following the winter there is a strong chance Sea Siren will be retired to stud ahead of returning for another season.

Coolmore also recently secured the former Gai Waterhouse-trained wonder colt Pierro to stand at their stud for a believed $40 million deal, the five-time Group 1 winning champion a possible date match for Sea Siren.

“She is absolutely ideal for Pierro,” Bester said.
