Sea The Stars is a half brother to Urban Ocean (Bering), Melikah (Lammtarra), Galileo (Sadler's Wells), Black Sam Bellamy (Sadler's Wells), All Too Beautiful (Sadler's Wells), My Typhoon (Giant's Causeway) and Cherry Hinton (Green Desert), out of the Arc winner Urban Sea (Miswaki), a half sister to 2000 Guineas winner King's Best (Kingmambo) and Group Three winner Allez Les Trois (Riverman).

Cape Cross has 84 winners of 121 races in Europe and the UAE this year, with eight stakes winners. This win puts the Darley sire's European earnings for the year past the £3 million barrier, and he and Danehill Dancer (who also has 84 individual winners) are virtually tied for the lead of the list of leading sires in Europe.
