Prince Bishop's dam
visits Sea The Moon
NORTH EASY BAY, the dam of Dubai World Cup hero Prince Bishop, is reported to have been covered by Deutsches Derby winner Sea The Moon.
The unplaced Prospect Bay mare, a granddaughter of Sun Chariot Stakes winner Topsy, produced a Casamento colt last year. She also has a juvenile colt from the first crop of Poet's Voice, a son of Prince Bishop's sire Dubawi.
In total, North East Bay has produced nine foals, with five winners from as many runners. Saturday's Dubai World Cup victory by Prince Bishop was the eight-year-old's second top-flight win.
In visiting Sea The Moon, North East Bay joins the likes of Favorite, owned by the stallion's breeders Gestut Gorlsdorf, and the Galileo mare Bell Su River, two of the first mares scanned in foal to the Lanwades Stud resident.
Sea The Moon is the first son of Sea The Stars to retire to stud. The four-year-old was one of two first-crop Classic winners by the sire last year following victory in the Oaks for Taghrooda. He is standing the current season for a fee of £15,000.
