The catalogue features a yearling from the much-anticipated first crop of outstanding 2009 world champion Sea The Stars, a colt out of Group 3 winner Rosa Del Dubai.

Other premier-league stallions with produce on offer in Milan will be Dalakahani, Danehill Dancer, Dubawi, Holy Roman Emperor, Invincible Spirit, Montjeu and New Approach.
