Sea The Stars Filly Powers to TDN Rising Stardom at Newmarket

Sea Just In Time |


Newmarket's Darley Maiden Fillies' S. played host to the 'TDN Rising Star' performance of subsequent G3 Musidora S. third Infinite Cosmos (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) last term and this year's renewal produced another display of note as William Haggas trainee Sea Just In Time (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}–My Timing {GB}, by Street Cry {Ire}) powered to a 4 3/4-length triumph in the straight 10-furlong test.

The G2 Ribblesdale and G1 Irish Oaks entry employed a patient approach from the outset and was within range at the tail of the field through halfway. Easing forward inside the last half-mile, the 11-2 chance was stoked up to seize control approaching the final furlong and powered clear of overmatched rivals on the climb to the line for an impressive daylight success. Sea Just In Time becomes the 19th Rising Star for her sire.

“That was nice and I thought she did that well,” said Maureen Haggas. “We always thought she was nice and is well-rated, being a sister to Truthful, and we had the older sister as well [Sea On Time], who sadly injured a tendon after winning a maiden when she looked nice. There is no rush to decide where she goes next, I'll leave that to William [Haggas]. I think she probably needs three weeks before she runs again and we could look for a Listed contest for her. There are lots of things later in the year like the [G1] Irish Oaks. Sea Of Class was second here before going on to win a Listed race and then on to win the Irish Oaks. She still needs some time and some sunshine, like we all do!”

Sea Just In Time is the third of four foals, all by Sea The Stars (Ire), and third scorer produced by an unraced half-sister to Listed Criterium de Vitesse victor and G3 Prix Texanita runner-up Beau Ideal (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}). She is a full-sister to a yearling filly. The April-foaled bay's G3 Winter Hill S.-winning second dam Lay Time (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) is a granddaughter of storied champion Time Charter (Ire) (Saritamer).
