Colt Foal For Arc Winners Sea The Stars-Zarkava
In France, the "much publicised mating of 2 brilliant Arc winners in Sea The Stars & Zarkava - who won the big end of season race in 2009 & 2008 respectively - has produced a colt foal," reported racingpost.com. Georges Rimaud, manager of the Aga Khan Studs in France, commented: "He is a strong colt who looks like his sire & is very correct. It was a straight-forward foaling & both the mare & foal are fine." The colt (born at The Aga's Haras de Bonneval) is Zarkava's 2nd foal; she produced a filly by another Arc winner Dalakhani last year. Zarkava (Zamindar-Zarkasha, by Kahyasi) recorded 5 Gr1-victories during her unbeaten career on the track for The Aga Khan. And superstar 5YO stallion & 6-time Gr1-winning 2009 European Horse-Of-The-Year Sea The Stars (Cape Cross-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) now stands at The Aga Khan's Gilltown Stud in Ireland.
