First foal is a filly for G1 winner Daredevil
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
WinStar Farm’s Daredevil, More Than Ready’s winner of the Champagne S. (G1) at two, sired his first reported foal on Tuesday when a filly was born at Sugar Maple Farm in Poughquag, NY.

Bred by SF Bloodstock, the filly is out of the Henny Hughes mare Henny’s Princess, a stakes-winning juvenile from the immediate family of Horse of the Year Havre de Grace.

“I quite like our Daredevil filly out of Henny’s Princess. She is correct, with good angles putting together a good frame,” said Dan Hayden of Sugar Maple Farm. “She has a nice head with quality, and a smart eye. A good overall model.”

Daredevil was a precocious 2-year-old on the track, winning his debut by 6 ¼ lengths at Belmont in 1:09.87 for six furlongs. In his second start, Daredevil stretched out to a mile to win the Champagne S. (G1) at Belmont, finishing 2 ½ lengths ahead of eventual Grade 2 winner Upstart in 1:36.62 for a mile. He earned a 107 Beyer – the single fastest performance of 2014 by a juvenile, and the fastest Beyer in over 20 years in the Champagne.

Daredevil’s 107 Beyer also makes him the fastest 2-year-old colt since 2010, when Uncle Mo and The Factor both recorded similar speed figures late in their respective 2-year-old campaigns, and it represents the fastest Beyer earned by a 2-year-old at the mile distance in over 20 years.

Daredevil, who retired to WinStar in 2016 with earnings of $424,600, is out of the multiple Grade 1-producing Forty Niner mare, Chasethewildwind, and he’s one of five Grade 1 winners under the first two dams in his female family. He bred 123 mares in his first book, and is set to stand his second season at WinStar for a fee of $7,500 S&N.

“Daredevil is the fastest 2-year-old ever by More Than Ready, a sire known for 2-year-old success around the globe,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar President & CEO. “More Than Ready is emerging as an important international sire of sires, and it’s happening through his best juvenile sons, like Sebring, who’s the sire of Australian Horse of the Year Dissident. So we hold very high hopes for Daredevil standing alongside his sire, and we expect to see precocious and fast-looking foals.”
