Throwback Thursday Race

Sea The Stars

We move back to the flat for today's race of the day and we are going all the way down the line to 2009 when a very talented Sea the Stars landed the 2000 Guineas and Epsom Derby double.

Aidan O'Brien had six in the field but John Oxx's horse of a life time managed to put aside the stamina doubts to stay the distance the best of the lot.

After landing the Guineas earlier on in the year Sea The Stars was 11/4 second favourite just before the off to land a second Classic of the season and with the race falling into place perfectly he was not for catching in the final stages.

Sea The Stars has gone on to become a very successful sire creating great prodigies that are looking to complete the same double he did.
