BAY filly (den) 2021
sea the moon - first spirit
Seaof War is the second born foal out of our broodmare, First Spirit, who was bought for €80,000 at the 2019 Goffs February Sale in Ireland.
The vision of our breeding project in Denmark is to produce high-quality bloodstock based on one of the best families in the international stud book.
In 2020 First Spirit was shipped to England to be covered by German Derby winner Sea The Moon at Kirsten Rausing’s Lanwades Stud in Newmarket. The covering resulted in this beautiful, strong filly foal, who was born on the 27th of January 2021.
Seaof War is by Lanwades Stud’s sensational Group 1 German Derby winner Sea The Moon (by Sea The Stars) – pictured.
Sea The Moon was unbeaten at 2 and went on to become Champion and German Horse of the Year in 2014. He has already established himself as a Group 1 sire with his Coronation Cup winning daughter Alpine Star.
Seaof War’s dam, First Spirit, was born in America in 2015 in the care of HH Prince Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms. She is by G1 winning sire First Defence (by Unbridled’s Song) who is also the sire of one of Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas winner Siskin.
First Spirit, herself unraced, is out of Listed winner Choice Spirit (by Danzig) and half-sister to the dam of G1 Prix Jean Romanet winner Announce and G3 Prix de la Grotte winner Mexican Gold.
Moreover, Choice Spirit is a half-sister to HH Prince Khalid Abdullah’s mighty Zafonic (by Gone West), 4-time G1 winner incl. Dewhurst Stakes, Prix Morny, Prix de la Salamandre and 2000 Guineas Stakes.
Zafonic was Champion 2- and 3-y-o in Europe before becoming Champion Sire at stud.
