Sea The Sky had failed to get in front since snagging her Nov. 2 debut at Chantilly and went postward for this marathon coming back off a third in Deauville's Aug. 14 G3 Prix Minerve. Settled off the pace in sixth for the most part, she made continued headway under pressure in the home straight to gain a narrow advantage entering the final furlong and was ridden out late to deny Divine Jewel in a bobbing finish for a career high.

Sea The Sky, the seventh of nine foals, is one of three scorers produced by an unraced full-sister to G1 Deutsches Derby-winning sires Samum (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}) and Schiaparelli (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}) and G1 Preis der Diana  (German Oaks) heroine Salve Regina (Ger) (Monsun {Ger}). The €820,000 BBAG September yearling is a full-sister to runaway G1 Deutsches Derby-winning sire Sea The Moon (Ger) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) and to the dam of this term's Listed Abingdon S. runner-up Golden Lyra (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}). She is also a half-sister to Listed Dallmayr Coupe Lukull runner-up Sansiwa (Ire) (Dansili {GB}) and a yearling filly by Frankel (GB). Sea The Sky's weanling full-brother is slated to sell at this year's Goffs November Foal sale, according to Gestut Gorlsdorf's Niko Lafrentz.
