Haggas eyeing Irish Oaks glory

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

William Haggas has admitted it was an easy call to put Sea Of Class forward for the Darley Irish Oaks at The Curragh on July 21.

The Sea The Stars filly had a few other options ahead of the meeting later this month but the distances have not been suitable for the talented runner.


Having spoken with the owners, Haggas feels the Darley Irish Oaks will be ideal for Sea Of Class as she targets glory at The Curragh.


He said: “The Irish Oaks is the plan. It came down to the fact it’s a fillies’ Classic which they (owner Sunderland Holding) want to win.


“She would have gone to the Pretty Polly last Sunday and the Nassau at Goodwood if we were going to go down the mile-and-a-quarter route, but we decided to go for the Irish Oaks.


“It was a decision mutually agreed by the owner and trainer, and it wasn’t a difficult one as it happened.”
