‘Stars’ very best was not required in Paris
by Geir Stabell / Globeform
Printer-friendly version

Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe:

Paris 5 Oct: The heavy favourite Sea The Stars obliged at Longchamp and recorded a remarkable sixth Group One win on the bounce in the process, but he did not have to perform up to his absolute best to win Europe’s premier race. That’s how good he is.

Globeform ratings show that Sea The Stars, who seems to be about ‘50/50’ to turn up for the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) at Santa Anita, landed the ‘Arc’ without having to reproduce his brilliant form in the Irish Champion Stakes (G1), where he returned GF 130.

In beating Longchamp specialist Youmzain by two lengths, the son of Cape Cross performed a couple of lengths below his best, though he probably would have pulled out another length or two if he had been required to do so. He was not, however, as when Youmzain got going, Sea The Stars already had the race nicely wrapped up.

Cavalryman, a horse who would fit well into the Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1), improved to beat last year’s winner of that contest, Conduit, by a head for third, while Dar Re Mi reproduced her Prix Vermeille (G1) form to finish fifth. She could challenge the boys again in the BC Turf, or take a drop in distance / class to contest the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (G1) at Santa Anita.
