Throwback Race Of The Day - 19/08/21

Sea Of Class

Today we are looking back at the 2019 renewal of the Yorkshire Oaks, with the Group One taking centre stage today and in the race we are looking back at it showed us a superstar.

The daughter of Sea The Stars retired as a four year old after suffering a career-ending bout of an abdominal disorder, following her comeback run at Royal Ascot in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes.

Despite her stability improving in recent days, the condition sadly got the better of her and she has not been seen since June 2019.

One of the stars of 2019 season, the four-year-old Sea Of Class won the Yorkshire and Irish Oaks - two Group One's before heading to Longchamp to so nearly run down Enable in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Known for her unique hold-up style, she became accustom to saving all her speed and stamina for the closing stages under regular pilot James Doyle.

She won on four of her six starts in the season of her prime before returning to the fold at Ascot in the ten furlong Group One at Royal Ascot with no one able to predict the series of events that was about to approach her.

Her win in the Yorkshire Oaks was one of her best performances during her career and with the race taking place today we are looking back at this renewal.
