Sea The Moon's Daytona Sea Snags TDN Rising Star In Germany

Sea The Moon | Lanwades Stud


Gestut Ittlingen's well-regarded G1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) entry Daytona Sea (GB) (Sea The Moon {Ger}–Daytona {GB}, by Motivator {GB}) was usurped at the tills for Monday's Primetec-Pokal at Hannover, but was unmatched in the 11-furlong contest and powered to 'TDN Rising Stardom' with an impressive debut triumph. She was rousted from the gates to occupy a slot along the rail in a handy third for the most part. Improving one spot off the home turn, the 29-10 second choice swooped for control approaching the final furlong and was ridden clear in the closing stages to easily outclass Ultima (Ger) (Amaron {GB}) by an impressive 3 3/4 lengths.

“I was expecting her to feature prominently, like she does in her work, but I did not anticipate she would win so easily,” trainer Markus Klug told GaloppOnline. “Her next run could be at Hamburg [in the July 2 G3 Mehl Mulhens Trophy].”

Daytona Sea, half to the unraced 2-year-old filly Dua Lina (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), becomes the third winner from as many runners for G3 Hamburger Stutenpreis victrix Daytona Bay (GB) (Motivator {GB}), herself kin to G3 La Coupe winner Dallas Affair (GB) (Soldier Hollow {GB}) and the stakes-placed Diamond Daisy (Ger) (Shirocco {Ger}). The April-foaled bay's mutiple stakes-winning second dam Daytona (Ger) (Lando {Ger}) is a full-sister to G1 Deutschland-Preis hero Donaldson (Ger) and to the dam of G3 Preis der Winterkonigin victrix and G1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) runner-up Diamond Dove (Ger) (Dr Fong).
