Sebring is an Australian thoroughbred racehorse born on 23 September 2005. He is a chestnut son of More Than Ready and Purespeed.

Bred by Corumbene Stud Pty Ltd, he was sold at the 2007 Conrad Jupiters Magic Millions Sale to Star Thoroughbreds for Au$130,000.[1]

He enjoyed great success as a 2 year old, including Group One wins in the Golden Slipper[2] and AJC Sires Produce Stakes.

In Sydney, Blake Shinn, a former Victorian jockey, forfeited the $3,525,800 Golden Slipper ride to Glen Boss because of suspension. He returned to the $450,000 AJC Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick in which he rode Sebring to win the race, the second leg of the triple crown.

On 3 May 2008, Sebring failed to complete the juvenile triple crown when beaten by a head in the Champagne Stakes by Samantha Miss.

In late July 2008, Sebring had stress-related bone bruising and have to be spelled for two months, effectively ending any attempt at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Following an unsatisfactory fitness trial on 27 January 2009, the owners of Sebring decided to retire the horse to stud.[3]
