Oxx and Tsui unleash Stars filly

Sea The Stars

Owner Christopher Tsui sees the first progeny of Sea The Stars take the track in his colours as My Titania makes her racecourse bow at Leopardstown on Thursday.

Sea The Stars won six Group Ones for Tsui back in 2009 and his first crop of runners have hit the racecourse this summer, with two of his 10 starters winning so far.

Tsui and Sea The Stars' trainer John Oxx have yet to team up with one of their great horse's sons or daughters, but My Titania will get the ball rolling in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Fillies Maiden.

"She is a nice filly having her first run and hopefully she will come on for it," said Oxx.

"Like everybody else we would like a bit of rain and good ground. This is a nice start for her, though there are a couple with good placed form, including David Wachman's Three D Alexander who was third to Tapestry (subsequent Debutante Stakes winner).

"My Titania is quite precocious. Plan A was for her to be out a few months ago, but for one reason or another that didn't happen so she is out later."

Oxx also takes the wraps off a well-bred colt in Karezak, who lines up in the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Maiden.

The son of Azamour holds an early entry for next year's Investec Derby.

Oxx said: "He's a nice big horse and needs the run. He'll hopefully run respectably. He hasn't been on grass much so it could come as a shock to him. He wouldn't be as sharp as the filly (My Titania)."
