Cloth Of Stars

€7,500 B 2013 15.3HH (1.60M)
By Sea The Stars – Strawberry Fledge (Kingmambo)
Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Haras du Logis, Normandy
Timeform Champion rated 132, the first colt home in two Arcs, and the very best by Sea The Stars. G1 Prix Ganay winner and G1 juvenile, and the best in an elite Niarchos family. His second place to Enable was rated higher than his sire’s win in the race and good enough to have won nine of the 10 previous Arcs.
