Sea the Stars will not be limited to 75 mares, says stud

  • Rumours that Sea the Stars will be limited to covering 75 or 80 mares in his first season at stud have been rebuffed by the Aga Khan’s Gilltown Stud in Co Kildare.

    The retired Arc winner will stand at stud next year and during a discussion on the overproduction of horses on 12 November, racing broadcaster Nick Luck said the stallion would have a limited book.

    “Over production is a problem at the top of the industry as well as at the bottom,” Mr Luck told the World Horse Welfare conference where he was a speaker.

    But a spokesman for the stud told H&H Sea The Stars’ book had not been finalised but would be likely to include 100 mares.
