Another Classic Trial Winner for SEA THE MOON
SEA THE MOON’s daughter KASSADA was an impressive winner of the Gr.3 Diana Trial at Hoppegarten on Sunday.  Although racing keenly, she made virtually all the running and won by five lengths for trainer Markus Klug. SEA THE MOON is now sire of the favourite for the Gr.1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) with KASSADA as well as sire of the favourite for the Gr.1 Deutsches Derby (German Derby) with FANTASTIC MOON, both races due to run in August. KASSADA was unsold for €140,000 at the BBAG September Yearling Sale and therefore remains in the ownership of her breeder Gestut Rottgen. KASSADA ran three times at two finishing third on her first two starts before winning her maiden at Munich in November.  She was sent out for her first run at three in April where she duly won by four lengths at Dusseldorf. SEA THE MOON is also sire of Irish-bred WESTMINSTER MOON who is currently favourite for this year’s Polish Derby having won twice already this year.

First winner for STUDY OF MAN
STUDY OF MAN, Lanwades Stud’s Classic-winning son of DEEP IMPACT, celebrated his first winner from just his second runner yesterday, when DEEPONE justified favouritism to win the 7½f EBF Maiden at Leopardstown on debut. Trained by Paddy Twomey, the colt showed a smart turn of foot winning by two and a half lengths. Racing Post reported in the analysis “He should have a bright future”. DEEPONE was bred by Andreas Bezzola and is out of the unraced GALILEO mare AVYANNA. He was sold from Barton Stud to Castle Bloodstock for 31,000 gns at the Tattersalls December Foal Sale before making 62,000 gns to trainer Paddy Twomey from Beechvale Stud at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 3. STUDY OF MAN, is a Niarchos-bred son of the great DEEP IMPACT out of SECOND HAPPINESS, a daughter of the phenomenal MIESQUE and a half-sister to French Classic winners KINGMAMBO and EAST OF THE MOON. A great start at stud for the Prix du Jockey Club winner who retired to Lanwades Stud for the 2020 season.  Please click below the watch DEEPONE winning...
