Seraphim (NZ)


Sire: 
Rip Van Winkle (IRE)

Dam: 
Ethereal (NZ)

Foaled in 2012

Bay Mare Currently In Foal To: Super Seth (AUS)

Seraphim credited her dam Ethereal with her first stakes winner as a broodmare. Ethereal had already produced three stakes performers before Seraphim won the Listed Marton Cup (2100m).
Seraphim's mating in 2020 with Super Seth will introduce proven nicks for the family through Redoutes Choice, High Chaparral & Zabeel. We await the outcome with great interest.
