May kicked off in good style for the ever consistent Sequalo with the lightly raced and promising Seqsea breaking his maiden in strong fashion at Eagle Farm on May 2.
Showing good pace to share the early lead before taking a sit, the Kelly Doughty trained three-year-old gave chase in the straight, finding the line in determined style to salute by a long neck.
Having only his third start, the bay has shown encouraging improvement at each outing and the best looks to be still in store.
Bred by Jill Strachan and raced by her Reynella Thoroughbreds Syndicate, Seqsea (say that out loud - a clever name!) is out of the two times winning Sea Road mare Sea Mirage who also has a Sequalo yearling colt.
Her dam Intrepid Illusion was a city winning 3/4 sister to the Gr.2 Maribyrnong Plate winner Fire Thunder and other stakes winners from this family include Granite King and Intrepid Clipper.
Seek And Find was also in metropolitan winning form, on Saturday May 12 at his first outing since a close second in the Magic Millions Sprint in mid-January finding plenty to take out the Doomben Dash.
Recording his ninth win from 22 starts, the Kelso Wood trained five-year-old increased his prizemoney tally to just short of $250,000 - proving an excellent money spinner for his connections including his breeders, the Devine family.
"I told the owners he woudl come back much better this time in," a delighted Wood said, "and he is only going to keep improving - there is a good race in him this preparation."
Outlining the Chief De Beers, the Lightning, the Eye Liner and the Ramornie as possible targets for Seek And Find, Wood added that Jason Taylor's ride was a gem - "he is a very underestimated jockey and he has handled this horse perfectly."
Seek And Find is the first foal produced by the dual city winning Late Coniston mare Coniston Lass who is a Lyndhurst regular. Served last spring by Drumbeats, she has a Hidden Dragon weanling colt and three other unraced youngsters by Sequalo.
Her dam Perfect Dancer was a very good producer, three of her six winners successful at metropolitan level - That's Perfect, Gira and Perfect Moment.
Sequalo (as usual) has been good form throughout May, his other winners for the month being Trail Boss (Ipswich - his fifth success from 15 starts), Apache Pup (Charters Towers - his eighth victory), Caliente (three length 2Y0 Handicap winner at the Sunshine Coast), Agent Al (debut 2Y0 winner at Grafton), Modern Al (Toowoomba - second win from last three starts), Don't You Worry (Rockhampton), With Friends (Burrandowan), Alo Magic (1.8 len 2Y0 maiden winner at Charters Towers), Red Wine Bwana (Home Hill - his sixth win) and Mr Thatcher (1.5 lens at the Sunshine Coast).
