BBAG Spring Sale Features Smartly-Bred Sea The Stars Colt

The European breeze-up action moves to Germany this week with the breeze session of the BBAG Spring Sale set to take place on Thursday morning before the auction on Friday.

A small sale in comparison to its European neighbours, but with the notable graduate of Prix de l’Arc deTriomphe winner Danedream (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}) to recommend it, this year’s catalogue of 73 horses features a mixture of 30 juveniles, with the remainder being older horses in training.

One of the highlights of the sale should be Lot 29, Meer (Ger), Gestut Gorlsdorf’s two-year-old colt by Sea The Stars (Ger) out of the Group 2 winner Meergorl (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger})). With a name which translates to ‘Sea’, he is consigned for the sale by Markus Klug, the former trainer of the Deutsches Derby winner Sea The Moon (Ger), who is also by Sea The Stars and bred and owned by Gorlsdorf’s Heike Bischoff and Niko Lafrentz. The juvenile colt’s three-parts sister Mercedes (Ger) (Sea The Moon {Ger}) was a Listed winner in Hanover, while the family also boasts the G1 Preis der Diana winner Miss Yoda (Ger). She too is by Sea The Stars.

“We have to feed our horses and pay our great staff at home,” said Lafrentz of the colt’s sale. “And we are major shareholders of the BBAG, so we want to support our Spring Sale this year.”

Markus Klug added of Meer, “He is an outstanding two-year-old colt in my yard. He looks smashing and his movements are wonderful. He will be a very good three-year-old, but I think he will start his carrier at the end of this season as a two-year-old. I hope one of my owners will buy him, so I can keep him in training.”

The catalogue also features juveniles from the first crops of Calyx (GB) and Inns Of Court (Ire), both consigned by Con Marnane of Bansha House Stables. The BBAG Spring Sale gets underway Friday, May 19 at 11am.
