Sea The Stars Colt Breaks Book 2 Tattersalls Record
A colt by Sea The Stars set a new record for Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale when selling to Angus Gold on behalf of Sheik Hamdan’s Shadwell Stud for 850,000 guineas on Wednesday. The price surpasses the previous record of 725,000 guineas. Consigned by Italy’s Allevamento Le Gi on behalf of breeder Massimo Parri, the colt is out of the multiple stakes producer Biz Bar, dam of Gr1 Gran Premio de Milano winner Biz The Nurse, as well as Champion Italian 2YO and Gr1 Premio Gran Criterium winner Biz Heart, among others. "He was really a Book 1 horse, but my other lot in this year's draft was in Book 2 and they were travelling together so it made sense to sell them in the same week,” Parri told Racing Post. “He has always been a fantastic horse with great bone, and he has a great mind."
