Zarkava To Visit Sea The Stars

Tuesday, 24th January 2017

Unbeaten Champion European filly Zarkava is set to be covered by Sea The Stars this year, reports Racing Post. It will be the first time the 12YO Aga Khan-owned mare has visited the same stallion twice. She is currently in foal to Siyouni. Zarkava's first visit was to Dalakhani which produced the filly Zerkaza. Then followed colts by Redoute's Choice, Sea The Stars, Galileo and Dubawi. She also has a 2YO Frankel filly and a yearling Invincible Spirit colt yet to race. The exceptional Zarkava (Zamindar) won all seven of her starts at two and three, culminating with her victory in the 2008 Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe where she swept through the field from an unpromising position to score by 2-lengths. She was the first filly or mare since Urban Sea (the dam of Sea The Stars) in 1993 to win the Arc. Zarkava won another four Gr1s, including the French Triple Crown for fillies, and was named 2008 European Horse of the Year.
