A keystone species is a species on which the persistence of a large number of other species in the ecosystem depends. If a keystone species is extirpated from a system, the species it supported also will disappear, as will the other dependent species.
The proportion of horses that compete successfully at the top level is miniscule. The number that do it on the track before following up at stud is even more so.
Yet in time, he could face most competition from his younger half-brother Sea The Stars. Between them this season, the pair are responsible for nine G1 winners and 37 European stakes winners overall. There was a fine illustration of just how influential Urban Sea has become on the breed in June, when Galileo and Sea The Stars sired the winners of the Derby and Oaks in Australia and Taghrooda - not since Pocahontas in through her sons Stockwell and King Tom had the Epsom Classics fallen to the progeny of two stallions that were out of the same mare.
Sea The Stars has only got 3-year-olds racing and his start at stud - three Group 1 winners and nine stakes winners in total - augurs well for his future. Her fifth dam, Asterblute, won the German 1, Guineas, Oaks and Derby for Schlenderhan while her own dam, Allegretta, was bred by the stud by their then resident stallion Lombard.
The best of the five foals on the track was G2 winner Anno, but it is the first of the quintet, Allegretta, who has had the most lasting impact. Allegretta was transferred to the U. Urban Sea was sold as a yearling in Deauville to trainer Jean Lesbordes for Fr, on behalf of a Japanese art dealer.
However, when he later went bankrupt, David Tsui and Lillian Oung stepped in to purchase the filly. That partnership was dissolved inby which time Urban Sea was a dual Listed winner, and Tsui assumed outright ownership. She had come into the race in good form, having won the G3 Prix Gontaut-Biron at Deauville six weeks previously, but had yet to succeed at G1 level and was consequently sent off at to-1 against the likes of classic winners Intrepidity, User Friendly, and White Muzzle.
Urban Sea, however, was particularly effective on the prevailing soft ground and, after taking advantage of an opening on the inner, scored by a neck under Eric Saint-Martin from the fast-finishing White Muzzle.
It is a quality which the trainers especially love with the Sea The Stars progeny. There should also be plenty more to look forward to from her final foal, Born To Sea, who stands at Rathasker Stud in Ireland.
Not to be forgotten are her daughters, three of whom have bred stakes winners. Clarke, who knew the mare well, pinpointed a combination of factors.
Ling Tsui always said that she was a mare with spirit and intelligence because she had a sparkle in her eye, had her ears pricked all the time and knew that she was number one in every situation. Everybody who knew her felt the same. Overall, Sea The Stars has sired four foals out of Galileo mares, including two of racing age.
Both have yet to race. However, expect the pattern to be repeated more widely in the future, and it will be fascinating to see the results.ADVERTISEMENTS: Some of the major problems of urbanisation in India are 1.
