Sea The Stars Odds-On For UK Freshman Sire Title
With the UK's spring racing season underway this past weekend, there is plenty of speculation as to which of the 2013 freshman 2YO sires will hold sway in prizemoney earnings. Nonetheless, bookmakers have priced the contest up as a fait accompli, installing Galileo's crack half-brother and multiple Gr1 winner Sea The Stars (Cape Cross-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) a dominant 4-9 favourite, ahead of racetrack arch-rival & Windsor Park shuttler Mastercraftsman (Danehill Dancer-Starlight Dreams, by Black Tie Affair) who is at 2-1. Mastercraftsman is the 2-1 favourite to sire the most winners by a freshman sire, ahead of Eliza Park shuttler Bushranger (Danetime-Danz Danz, by Efisio), Intense Focus (Giant's Causeway-Daneleta, by Danehill) & Sea The Stars.
