Sea The Stars's Sea La Rosa On Top In The Lillie Langtry

Stamina was the prime requirement in Saturday's G2 Qatar Lillie Langtry S. on the final day of the Qatar Goodwood Festival and Sunderland Holding's Sea La Rosa (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}--Soho Rose {Ire}, by Hernando {Fr}) came through with under a perfectly-judged ride from Tom Marquand. Settled third early several lengths off the lone leader Urban Artist (GB) (Cityscape {GB}), the William Haggas-trained 9-4 second favourite who was last seen finishing runner-up in the G2 Lancashire Oaks at Haydock July 2 enjoyed a cool ride and was in front...

Oaks Heroine Tuesday To Skip Irish Classic

Eight fillies will head postward for Saturday's G1 Juddmonte Irish Oaks following Thursday morning's confirmation of final declarations for the €500,000 Classic. The Co.

Sea The Stars' Rosscarbery Prevails In Stanerra Thriller

Gaining some compensation for her controversial disqualification from third place in last Sunday's G1 Pretty Polly S., Robert Moran's Rosscarbery (Ger) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) edged out Emily Dickinson (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) in a pulsating finale to Thursday's G3 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Stanerra S. at Leopardstown. Always travelling strongly on the outer halfway down the field, the Paddy Twomey-trained 15-8 favourite struck for home passing two out and found the line a short head in front of Ballydoyle's unexposed runner. The print showed that Billy Lee had prevailed by...
