Seville to stand at Heritage Stallions in Maryland


Seville, a German-bred son of Galileo with a Group 1 win in Australia and Group 1 placings in three European countries, will stand the 2015 breeding season at Heritage Stallions in Chesapeake City, Md.

The 6-year-old horse will stand for an advertised fee of $6,000, and is currently in the process of being syndicated by Heritage Stallions. He made his stallion debut at Haras Massaiva in Chile.

Seville spent the first part of his on-track career in Europe racing for the Coolmore partnership. His 2-year-old campaign was highlighted by a runner-up finish in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy in England. During his 3-year-old season, he ran second in the Group 1 Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris in France and the Irish Derby, and also placed in two Group 2 events.

Seville was sold to an Australian partnership between his 2011 and 2012 campaigns, running second in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes in his first season on the continent. He earned his Group 1 victory at 5, taking the Metropolitan at Randwick.

The well-travelled horse retired with two wins in 20 starts for lifetime earnings of $1,188,759.

Bred in Germany by Tattersalls Ltd./England, Seville is out of the French Group 3-winning Silver Hawk mare Silverskaya, who is the dam of four winners from as many foals to race. He is from the family of Italian champion Will Dancer, Group 2 winners Dancing Eagle, Daneskaya, and Six Sense.
