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.

Daredevil - America's Fastest 2-Year-Old Colt Since 2010
Daredevil Overview
  • Won the $500,000 Champagne S. [G1] at Belmont in a canter, defeating G2 winner Upstart by 2 1/2 lengths in 1:36.62 for a mile - 107 Beyer
  • 107 Beyer speed as a G1-winning juvenile - the fastest Beyer earned by a 2-year-old colt since UNCLE MO & THE FACTOR in 2010, and the fastest by a 2-year-old at a mile in over 20 years
  • The fastest Champagne Beyer in over 20 years, faster than Uncle Mo (94), Union Rags (92), Shanghai Bobby (94), Scat Daddy (93), etc.
  • Impressive debut MdSpWt winner at Belmont, carving out fractions of 22.07, 44.94, & 57.03 before getting six furlongs in 1:09.87, earning a 96 Beyer - the fastest maiden Beyer in New York in 2014
  • The fastest 2-year-old ever by perennial leading juvenile sire MORE THAN READY, who is an emerging sire of sires through his top juvenile sons like SEBRING (AUS), sire of Australia’s 2015 Horse of the Year DISSIDENT (AUS)
  • Out of the multiple G1-producing Forty Niner mare Chasethewildwind - five G1 winners under his  first two dams
  • Bred to 123 mares in 2016, first foals arriving in 2017

"Daredevil’s brilliance at two reminded me of Uncle Mo, and More Than Ready, and a lot of the better juveniles I’ve been fortunate to be around. I have always thought the really talented two-year-olds went on to make the best stallions."  
-Todd Pletcher

"Daredevil is the fastest 2-year-old ever by More Than Ready, who is emerging as an important sire of sires around the world, and it’s happening through his best juvenile sons like Sebring (Aus)."
-Elliott Walden

 

"Daredevil has proven he’s a top-class colt...I just believe this is a horse with an enormous amount of talent"
-Steve Haskin
