Promising Sebring colt Ringerdingding has always shown above average ability and was able to translate talent to stakes success at Flemington Saturday when charging home from the back in the field to win the Listed VRC Springtime Stakes (1400m).
A new addition to the Darren Weir stable this spring after being previously trained in Sydney by Edward O’Rourke, Ringerdingding ran a fast finishing third at his last start in the Group III MVRC Australia Stakes indicating he was ready to hit top form.
Ridden a patient race by John Allen, Ringerdingding flew home out wide to score a half length win and has now three of 11 starts earning over $180,000 in prizemoney.
“The Australian Guineas next year is the long term plan, but he’s a tough little horse, so if he pulls up well we might back him up in the Sandown Guineas,” said Darren Weir.
“He’s a bit like Extra Brut, you have to keep working these colts to keep on top of them and keep their manners right.”
A $170,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Three Bridges Thoroughbreds draft for B2B Bloodstock, Ringerdingding was bred by Three Bridges in partnership as they purchased her dam Maybe I through Paul Willetts for $120,000 at the Inglis Broodmare Sale in 2015.
Ringerdingding is a half-brother to this season’s stakes-placed two year-old Salome and is the second winner for Group III placed Red Ransom (USA) mare Maybe I, a grand-daughter of dual Group I winner Flitter.
Now with B2B Bloodstock, Maybe I was covered by Ringerdingding’s sire Sebring last year and has produced a colt.
Ringerdingding is the 51st stakes-winner for Sebring, who stands at a fee of $66,000.
