Forty Niner, 2012 CH

America's Fastest 2-Year-Old Colt Since 2010

Daredevil's performance in the prestigious Champagne Stakes (G1) was historic in many ways, primarily through his titanic 107 Beyer speed figure - the fastest Champagne Beyer in over 20 years. It also marks the fastest juvenile Beyer at the popular distance of one mile over that same time span, and no 2-year-old colt has been faster in any race since Uncle Mo and The Factor half a dozen years ago.

Daredevil is quite simply the fastest juvenile ever by emerging sire of sires More Than Ready, who is renowned for his prowess with champion juveniles around the globe, among both sons & daughters and grandsons & granddaughters.
