Sea the Stars pulled from Irish Derby


With the ground yielding at the Curragh and more rain predicted for Saturday night, John Oxx withdrew Sea the Stars from Sunday's Irish Derby.

The winner of the 2000 Guineas and the Epsom Derby, Sea the Stars will now go in the 1 1/4-mile Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park on July 4, when he is expected to meet last year's Breeders' Cup Turf winner, Conduit.
