Like mother, like son - Mick won't let this chance slip bye


Here is one of the first snaps of Chance Bye's son which has landed in Mick Tubman's yard - and the larrikin trainer reckons he looks every bit like his former star filly.

The powerfully-built colt, by emerging sire Sebring, has only just arrived at Tubman's Kembla stable after the trainer and his good friend Jack Knight settled on racing the horse.

And he certainly has created a big impression with a striking white marking on his face.

"He's just the same as her," Tubman said.

"He's really quick on his feet and he's really athletic. Plus he's pretty sensible."

Tubman predicted the colt would be an early-running type, and joked that an end-of-year debut would not be out of the question when the two-year-old races start properly hotting up.

Chance Bye was a one-time Golden Slipper favourite for Tubman during a stellar juvenile season.

She has also produced a full sister to the colt which Tubman and Knight are likely to also keep.
