Dark Angel (IRE) ex Last Bid (GB) Grey Colt

2021 Grey colt by Dark Angel (IRE) ex Last Bid (GB) (Vital Equine (IRE))

Owner KVT

We purchased this colt for €60,000 at the Goffs Orby Yearling Sale which makes him eligible for the 2023 Goffs Million Sales Race at the Curragh next September, a race won this year by Charlie Hills. KVT was founded in the late 80’s to try to win the inaugural Cartier Millions Sales Races at Phoenix Park and, nearly 35 years on, our ethos remains to target these valuable sales race where we can.

Dark Angel is one of the leading European sires, who has been a consistent source of top class horses, including of course, the Charlie Hills-trained Champion Sprinter Battaash. The whole sireline has thrived at Faringdon Place with Dark Angel’s grandsire, Royal Applause, trained by Barry as well as his paternal half-brother Equiano. The latter is a fellow son of Acclamation, Royal Applause’s tremendously successful sire son and KVT currently have his very promising son, Equality, in training with Charlie.

This colt is the fifth product of the Dark Angel / Last Bid mating, unsurprising given the breeders’ family stands Dark Angel at their Yeomanstown Stud. The mating has proved hugely successful with all four of her runners winning and running to a high level, including the Listed-placed pair of San Andreas and Maggies Angel.

Luke Lillingston commented: “Dark Angel has become synonymous with the Hills family. Barry trained him for his successful two-year-old career culminating in a brilliant Middle Park victory. This very attractive colt is a full-brother to four winners, two of them gaining black-type. We all know that nothing is guaranteed in racing but all of this makes for a very appealing bet.”
