Sea Of Class has had her racing career ended by a bout of colic.

The Irish and Yorkshire Oaks winner was struck down on Wednesday and is receiving round the clock attention.

Her condition is so grave that her trainer William Haggas was unequivocal that her days on the track are over.

"If she was a human you would say she was critical but stable, that's how it is, there's nothing more I can add really. You just have to take each day as it comes.

After gaining her Group One wins at the Curragh and York, Sea Of Class came closer than anyone to ending Enable's winning streak when pushing her all the way in last year's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
