2015 The Sebring Race Results – Peeping Wins

A total of nine three-year-olds ran in the Listed The Sebring (1200m) at Rosehill this afternoon after five horses were scratched from the race in favour of other races throughout the day.

Tawteen had no speed out the gates while Music Magnate was away well. Gerald Ryan’s Washington Heights was the race favourite but couldn’t find a decent run, unable to tuck in after a sharp attempt.

Ron Quinton’s Peeping on the other hand got a lovely run through the field, just ahead of Bjorn Baker’s Music Magnate in the closing moments and crossing the line first while Mr Bogart rounded out the first three.

The lovely balanced, well moving filly got a great run with jockey Sam Clipperton, who has ridden the three-year-old in all five of her career starts. She also showed she’s a tough filly, backing up from a tough second place run in the Listed Fireball Quality (1100m) on March 7.

“This filly has just been going super,” Clipperton said.

“When we got her from day one she really impressed us. She’s the ultimate little professional, just wants to please you and that’s what is going to win you a race.

“Today I got a lovely run, it was a bit tactical early but I was able to slot in and get the gun run. She travelled well and what I was most impressed about was the last 100 metres when she was challenged, she really pinned her ears and wanted to win.

“They didn’t go all that hard [in the middle], I thought they would have gone harder on paper and I didn’t know where I was going to settle in the run but it worked out perfect for her. Because they didn’t go hard I was able to travel in behind the speed and go on very well.

“I’m very thrilled. It might not be the Golden Slipper but to win a ride for Ron on the big day means a lot and it’s very special.”

Quinton was happy with the win, revealing he had been unsure of her chances after drawing barrier five, outside of the presumed speedy runners.

Peeping will now head towards the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on April 4.

“From the first time I saw her I told owner Tom Kelly ‘this is a racehorse’,” he said.

“She’s come a long way in a short time.

“We were lucky because the draw didn’t look great for us, all the speed was inside of is, but as races often pan out, Sam just popped her into the right [position] and it went over a treat.

“She’s got a lot of ticker, a real nice filly.

“She’s only a light-frame filly but she’s got a lot of guts.”

Punters who backed the filly to win The Sebring at Ladbrokes.com.au enjoyed a payout of $5.
