Sequalo continued on with his good form at Eagle Farm on Wednesday, four-year-old Amber Ale recording a strong victory over 1000m.
It was the second win in a row for the Michael Nolan trained bay who had dug deep when saluting at his previous outing at Ipswich and his overall tally reads very well – four wins and three placings from 13 starts.
Consistent and tough (characteristics of the Sequalo breed), Amber Ale was bred by Sequalo share holder Leigh Lord who sold the talented galloper as a yearling at the QTIS 600 Sale for $28,000.
Enjoying cheering him on, Leigh has however been frustrated by her mare Academy Song’s reluctance to carry a foal in recent years – the well related daughter of Royal Academy slipping to Sequalo at her last two seasons.
She does however a two-year-old Sequalo colt in whom Leigh has retained a share and hopes are high for that fellow.
Academy Song is a daughter of the city winning Danehill mare Songlines, half sister to the 1000 Guineas heroine Whisked – dam of the multiple Gr.1 winner Tie The Knot.
