Sea The Stars's Sea La Rosa Prevails In The Pomone


Sea La Rosa | Scoop Dyga


Minutes after capturing the G3 Ballyogan S. at Naas on Sunday, the 2022 success story that is the William Haggas stable continued apace at Deauville as Somerville Lodge enjoyed a pattern-race double courtesy of Sunderland Holding's Sea La Rosa (Fr) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) in the G2 Darley Prix de Pomone. Saddled with a penalty for her success in Goodwood's G2 Qatar Lillie Langtry S. July 30, the Ecurie des Monceaux-bred 4-year-old was still hot property at 3-5 and set off in a close second behind compatriot Glenartney (GB) (Le Havre {Ire}) throughout the early stages. Having to work harder than those odds suggested to get to the front inside the final furlong, the homebred proved resolute for Tom Marquand to score by 3/4 of a length from Love Child (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}), who denied the long-time leader the runner-up spot by a short head.

Jean Lesbordes was on hand to represent Sunderland Holding and said, “It is a great moment for me, as I picked this filly here at the sales for Mrs Tsui, who is such a great lady. She trusts me to represent her in France and when this filly won today, it was a flashback to great memories going through my head, with Urban Sea and my son Clement, who left us so young. Sea The Stars was such a great horse and he is such a good sire. He is the real deal, he has it all. I am not a trainer anymore, William Haggas is a great professional and he will decide on the filly's future.”


Pedigree Notes:
Sea La Rosa, who was also runner-up in the G2 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock July 2 having won the G3 Pinnacle S. over that course and distance May 28, was bred in France by Ecurie des Monceaux and is a full-sister to the recent G2 Great Voltigeur S. and G3 Bahrain Trophy winner Deauville Legend (Ire) and a half to the G3 Derrinstown Stud 1000 Guineas Trial runner-up Dean Street Doll (Ire) (Oasis Dream {GB}). The listed-winning second dam Soho Rose (Ire) (Hernando {Fr}) is a full-sister to the

G2 Pretty Polly S. winner and stakes producer Hanami (GB) and a half to another listed scorer in Dubai Rose (GB) (Dubai Destination), who produced the dual G2 Prix de Royallieu heroine The Juliet Rose (Fr) (Monsun {Ger}). Soho Rose's yearling filly is by Golden Horn (GB).
