Darley stands 23 stallions in NSW & Victoria

Darley homebreds Albrecht and Kuroshio will join Dawn Approach and Epaulette as new stallions on Sheikh Mohammed’s Australian rosters for 2014.

A total of 23 stallions will stand at his NSW and Victorian properties.

Darley stallions sired the winners of 25% of the Group 1 races in Australia in 2013.  Those 18 Group 1 victories have been complemented by a further 11 Group 1 races around the world won by the progeny of Exceed And Excel, Street Cry, Lonhro, Commands, Medaglia d’Oro, Bernardini, Reset, Street Boss and Strategic to date.

Heading the roster in 2014 are Exceed And Excel and Street Cry at fees of $110,000 (inc gst).

Exceed And Excel has continued his dominance of the world’s two-year-old racing with Outstrip brilliantly winning the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf last November and Earthquake winning February’s G1 Blue Diamond Stakes.

Among Street Cry’s 15 Group 1 winners is Long John, outstanding winner of the Caulfield Guineas, whose victory made Street Cry the first stallion in almost thirty years to sire multiple winners of that race.  In addition, Street Cry continued his dominance in America where his son, New Year’s Day impressively won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita last November.

Champion Lonhro sired Champion 2YO Colt Pierro in 2013 and couldn’t have started 2014 in any better style with daughter Bounding’s defeat of older rivals in the G1 Railway Stakes on January 1.

Lonhro’s global appeal and popularity only continue to grow as evidenced by his $840,000, record-breaking yearling filly price at Easter earlier this month.

Standing alongside Lonhro is his son Denman, whose first crop of two-year-olds have made a brilliant start on the racetrack, among them Law, winner of the LR Breeders’ Plate.
