Sea Of Class

Having looked back at Enable's win in the 2017 renewal of the Irish Oaks on Monday we have today moved on to 2018's race and it saw the special Sea Of Class land the first Group One win if her career.

One of the stars over the last few seasons for William Haggas, the daughter of Sea The Stars 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 as a three year old only losing in her first event and then narrowly in the Arc.

The first Group One win of her career came in the 2018 Irish Oaks, when just managing to get up close home and see off the Epsom Oaks winner Forever Together.

Unfortunately as a four year old she passed away due to a tough battle with Collic, but she will always be a remembered as a special racehorse.
