Grade 1 winner Spring At Last has already sired two winners from his first crop of two-year-olds to race, including the impressive filly Seaneen Girl who won handily by 5 ¾-lengths at first asking Friday afternoon at Woodbine.
Seaneen Girl settled off the early pace before putting in a professionally rallying on the turn and taking full control of the race straightening for home. The chestnut filly widened in mid-stretch before being geared down late. The final time for the 4 1/2-furlong heat on the Polytrack was :52.90.
Spring At Last's first winner came in Mexico, when his two-year-old son Cartucho was victorious by 7 ¾-lengths in his debut. Earlier this week, Spring At Last sired the top two-year-old filly at the OBS June Sale, selling for a then-sale record $320,000, after breezing a bullet quarter mile in :20.80.
