Taghrooda, winner of the Group 1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, who was reviewed here recently, is one of two undefeated Group 1 classic stars from the first crop of the Gilltown Stud stallion Sea The Stars (by Cape Cross), a brilliant racehorse who is now leading the way among what appears to be a strong group of second season stallions in Europe.

That cohort’s recent blacktype scorers also include Jack Naylor who won the Group 3 Jockey Club of Turkey Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown recently.
