Sea The Stars: The World's Best Racehorse by Anne Holland
Sea The Stars - the very name has a magical ring. Horse of the season, the decade, the century - possibly of all time. The Arkle of the Flat Racing World, he has captured the imagination of racing fans throughout Europe. It is not just what he has won, but the manner in which he has done so: six Group Ones in six months, including the 2000 Guineas, the Derby and the Arc de Triomphe, the Big Three never before achieved by one horse in one season. Only once did any of his races approach a close finish. If trouble appeared, he cast it aside with his scintillating speed and he kept improving with every race. He held his own and more against older horses; not for him the tag 'miler' or 'stayer', for he proved his superiority at three separate distances. In short, Sea The Stars is the model racehorse. Anne Holland has been lucky enough to have held Sea The Stars in his stable, marvelled at his size, scope and demeanour. Her celebration in words and pictures of this racing phenomenon is a superb tribute to a three-year-old legend.
