Sea The Stars 4-6 to go to Irish National Stud

THE Irish National Stud has been installed 4-6 favourite to lure prolific winner Sea The Stars when he begins his stallion career next spring.

Owner Christopher Tsui has yet to confirm which stud Sea The Stars will stand at but Paddy Power believe it is between three operations.

Favourite is the Irish National Stud, where Sea The Stars was born, 2-1 second favourite is Tsui's stud, which the owner has yet to set up, and Sheikh Mohammed's many establishments are a collective 5-2.

However, the firm also reported a significant plunge on the Aga Khan Studs, causing Gilltown Stud to be slashed from 25-1 in 6-1.

Having amassed almost £4.5 million during his sensational nine-race career, Sea The Stars's covering fee is sure to be high but William Hill think it will barely make it into the six figures, going 6-4 favourite about the price being between €90,000 and €110,000.

What stud will Sea The Stars retire to?
Paddy Power: 4-6 Irish National Stud, 2 owner's stud, 5-2 any Sheikh Mohammed stud, 6 Aga Khan Studs, 25 Coolmore Stud, 1,000 The Playboy Mansion.

What will Sea The Stars's stud fee be?
William Hill: 6-4 between €90,000 and €110,000, 7-4 over €110,000, 2 under €90,000.
