Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 sale, this colt is by SEA THE MOON: http://www.lanwades.com/stallions/seathemoon_profile.html
Sea The Moon, a son of the great Sea The Stars, looks to be a rising star of the stallion ranks. Ever since his 11 lengths demolition of his rivals in the German Derby 2014, he’s been firmly established as a top class individual, and from his fabulous stats as a sire, he looks to be passing on his prowess to the next generation. Given he was a progressive 3yo and his progeny are bred for middle distances it’s rather surprising that, given his eldest progeny are still only 3yo’s, he has a massive 13% of Black Type horses to runners. This means that 13% of his runners are rated roughly 100 or above. It’s a percentage figure that can only be matched by the likes of Galileo and No Nay Never. We’re pretty sure that Sea The Moon, rather like his father, could be heading for a stellar career at stud.
Combine this prowess with that of the stamina laden mare NOTA BENE, who hails from the family of 24 Group or listed performers and we could be onto something here. Nota Bene has already produced NOT AFTER HOURS, a black type, two time winner, by the virtually unheard of stallion Wiener Waltzer. In visiting Sea The Moon, she could be about to deliver something a little special; or at least that’s what we are hoping.
From his initial video, you can see this colt is a fabulous mover, and he’s quite an athlete when he stands too. He looks a fabulous blend of pedigree and individual and given David’s superb ability to eke out every last drop of potential from his horses, whatever their level of ability, this colt shapes like a hugely exciting recruit to our Newmarket, yearling ranks.
We are already looking forward for him to start his progressive career journey in 2020, which could culminate in becoming yet another of Sea The Moon’s black type horses.
Please see his walk video in the gallery.
Pedigree Updates (November): WONDERFUL MOON (see the gallery) provided a decisive 12 length win in the Group 3 Grosser Preis Herzog von Ratibor-Rennen at Krefeld over 1700m. ENJOY THE MOON wins the Listed Grand Prix du Nord at Chantilly. This takes SEA THE MOON to 19 Black Type performers from just two crops of racing age.
Trainer update (23rd March): We received this update on him from David this morning: "The Sea The Moon colt has been cantering upsides and started to go to Warren Hill last week. He is a lovely mover who is clean of wind and gets up Warren Hill very easily. He has a lot of scope and is a nice strong colt who is not too big."
You can see the full video of him parading at our owners February stable visit and listen to David's commentary in the video gallery attached to this page. He has really strengthened up nicely and David sees him as a summer debutant. If our 3 year old cohort of Longsider and Prince Of Eagles with David are anything to go by, we'll have some fun with our two new additions to Rathmoy Stables!
