Sea Of Class has career ended by colic
on 07 July 2019
The William Haggas-trained classic star, failed narrowly against Enable in last year's Arc, is in intensive care following surgery

SEA Of Class has had her racing career ended by a serious bout of colic.

The Irish and Yorkshire Oaks winner was struck down on Wednesday and is receiving round the clock attention. Her condition is so grave that her trainer William Haggas was unequivocal that her days on the track are over.

“It’s devastating news. She had surgery on Wednesday and is under intensive care.

“If she was a human you would say she was critical but stable, that’s how it is, there’s nothing more I can add really. You just have to take each day as it comes.

“There is no question that her racing career is over, 100%.”

After gaining her Group 1 wins at the Curragh and York, Sea Of Class came closer than anyone to ending Enable’s winning streak when pushing her all the way in last year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Her sole start this year came at Royal Ascot in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes when she finished fifth on unfavourable soft ground.
