Sea The Stars colt caught attention in the ring in Milan
By Tom Peacock
A Sea The Stars colt assured that the best lot in the SGA sale in Milan would remain at € 120,000 for years in a row.
The Well-Made Chestnut made its debut towards the end of the day-long event under Lot 93, donated by Razza del Velino and a family that would be well known in Italian circles.
“Sea The Stars, come on!” exclaimed the auctioneer in English, the auctions starting slowly before they took over larger denominations starting at € 50,000, before finally being sold to Carlo Borsani and Scuderia Cocktail, the stable of Pietro Barbarito and Giampiero Soccini.
The individual born in mid-May is from March Madness, a Noverre mare who served the Botti family. She is already responsible for The Conqueror, a top sprinter who has won numerous Group and Listed events in Italy over the past three seasons, and Candy Store, a Group winning Lope De Vega mare.
This same team had already helped a filly from Almanzor to climb to the top of the € 90,000 ranking.
The mighty Allevamento by Giovanni Parri LeGi donated the first black type foal running the Epaulette Field Of Roses mare. The filly born in April is very talented under her third dam, Premio Dormello winner Marina Duff, including third from Italian Oaks Sopran Mariduff.
Almanzor has been a name on the lips of buyers in a wide range of jurisdictions throughout the past year, with the Haras d’Etreham stallion also being responsible for a colt that has led the way of last week La Teste Yearling Sale in France.
Ribchester, who made his mark on stage by winning the Mill Reef Stakes that day six years ago, was expected to get a decent result with the sale of a € 64,000 foal to accomplished Italian trainer Valfredo Valiani.

Spectators survey equine talent in Italy on Saturday
The next mile champion for Richard Fahey and Godolphin has had his first runners on the track this season since his tenure at Kildangan Stud and this particular person had a lot to recommend about him on his page.
Offered again by Velino, he is descended from the Barathea Ars Nova mare, who has already produced two black type performers for the Botti family in Clockmaker and Checkmark, as well as younger offspring like Zoffany and No Nay Never.
There was decent attendance and a friendly atmosphere at La Maura Racecourse in Milan, with the ring itself under a marquee, but the trade seemed to be mostly focused on the domestic market.
One of the first outliers was the activity of Mick Murphy and Sarah O’Connell of Longways Stables in County Tipperary, who selected a Mehmas foal for € 50,000 apparently as a breeze prospect.
The April-born colt named Prince Of Mehmas, from the family of Weld Park Stakes winner Rag Top, is a half-brother to Richard Hannon’s juvenile winner Its The Only Way, who went on to win the Listed Premio Bersaglio when he was transferred to Italy.
Italy’s flagship yearling sale produced sales well over € 120,000 in less depressed times and its 2020 results had generally been quite disappointing – despite the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic – with figures considerably down from the previous year’s trade.
While the results weren’t high enough to raise many eyebrows again, at least it hadn’t gotten worse.
Some 90 of the 136 lots sold at a liquidation rate of 66%, roughly the same as last year, but the total of € 1,777,000 was a slight improvement, as was an average of € 19,744 ( against € 19,655) and a median of € 13,000. (above € 11,000).
