Former Derby winner has over 30 entries
No less than 33 yearlings from the first crop of the brilliant Sea The Stars are among the 406 entries revealed yesterday for the 2014 Investec Derby.
Sea The Stars won the Derby in 2009 during a fantastic campaign that saw him win six Group One prizes in as many months before his retirement to stud.
His first progeny will contest a prize worth at least £1.325 million at Epsom on June 7th, 2014, in the 235th running of the world’s most famous Flat race.
Sea The Stars’ entries include the first-foal of Japanese star mare Vodka, whose seven top-level successes included the Japan Cup, a €1.2 million colt out of 2009 Prix Jean Romanet winner Alpine Rose who topped the Arqana August Sale, and sons of the 2000 and 2008 Investec Oaks heroines Love Divine and Look Here.
Sea The Stars’ owner Christopher Tsui has six of the sire’s yearlings entered.
Sea The Stars’ half-brother Galileo, regarded by many as the world’s best stallion, has 52 entries including Qatar Racing’s 2.5 million guineas purchase Hydrogen, the most expensive yearling sold at auction this year.
He is set to go into training with Peter Chapple-Hyam.
