The dectet of Sea The Star foals, which comprises seven colts and three fillies, include two well-connected individuals from the Castlebridge Consignment in a half-brother to Group 1 winners Youmzain and Creachadoir and a half-sister to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Nightime, who was the first Classic winner sired by Sea The Stars' half-brother Galileo.
