Lot 109 bay filly Super Seth – Gold Fever (Savabeel) $190,000 (draft: Waikato Stud)

Te Akau has first-hand knowledge of the family, with David Ellis having bought the dam Gold Fever as a yearling for $110,000, from the draft of Sledmere Stud, at the 2016 Gold Coast Yearling Sale – and carries the Waikato Stud brand.

Gold Fever made a made a perfect start to her racing career with a dominant three and a half length win and became a finalist for Champion Two-Year-Old and Horse of the Year following her victory in the Matamata Breeders’ Stakes (Gr. 2, 1200m) and placing in the Sistema Stakes (Gr. 1, 1200m).

In a brief career, Gold Fever won three of her six starts, while finishing third in the others, and being by eight-time Champion Sire Savabeel (Zabeel) she has the best possible chance of making it as a broodmare.

Super Seth made a fantastic impact as a three-year-old colt, especially when ‘coming from nowhere’ to beat race favourite Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) to win the Caulfield Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m).

Super Seth is a son of six-time Group One winner Dundeel, by sire of sires High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells), who is a very good sire in Australia, with over 50 stakes wins including 11 Group One. With his oldest crop only two-year-olds, the progeny of Super Seth have really impressed the trainers that have them, as horses with great natural strength and talent.

Only represented by a handful to race thus far, Super Seth son Poetic Champion won by over six lengths on debut and his filly Diablo Blanco also showed great acceleration when winning.

“She’s a really strong filly by Super Seth, who is certainly making a name for himself with first crop two-year-olds showing some real ability on the race tracks,” Ellis said.

“Super Seth was a colt that had an incredible turn of foot and the mating with such a talented filly in Gold Fever is very exciting.

“Super Seth is putting a lot of strength into his progeny and this filly has oodles of it and bred to be a real two-year-old type.”

Grand-dam Gold Rocks (Oratorio) not only had Gold Fever win the Matamata Breeders’ Stakes (Gr. 2, 1200m), but also her half-sister Gold Rush (So You Think) won it as well, while Te Akau has won the race eight times, most recently in 2023 with Zourion (Zoustar).

The filly carries a cross of Champion Sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram) on the dam line of grand sire Dundeel (High Chaparral) and sire line of Gold Fever.
