Urban Sea's Last Son To Rathasker Stud
Listed winner & Gr1 Irish Derby runner-up Born To Sea (Invicible Spirit-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) will stand for €10,000 at Ireland's Rathasker Stud, reports racingpost.com. A spectacular racemare, Urban Sea won the Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe but it's her breeding record that will put her in the history books and give Born To Sea a big profile for his first season. Urban Sea has had 11 foals, 9 that raced and all were winners including 8 stakes-winners & 4 Gr1 winners. They are Champion Sire Galileo (Sadler's Wells), Sea the Stars (Cape Cross), Black Sam Bellamy (Sadler's Wells) & My Typhoon (Giant's Causeway). Owner Christopher Tsui said: "My family, and especially my mother, Ling Tsui, are delighted to entrust the last son of our wonderful mare, Urban Sea, to [Rathasker Stud owner] Maurice Burns. We have been most impressed with his track record with stallions and we hope Born To Sea will be a champion stallion in years to come."
