RSS Feeds Thursday, April 15, 2010
With 2010 a little more than a quarter over, Darby Dan Farm is currently ranked as the fifth-leading consignor of Graded Stakes winners. Both of the Darby Dan products have gotten their graded stakes wins at Gulfstream Park.

Aurora Lights, a 4-year-old dark bay or brown filly by Pulpit out of Lady Lochinvar, won the $100,000 Sabin S. (G3) at Gulfstream on Feb. 27. The one-mile race was the second graded win of her career; she previously took the Selene S. (G3) at Woodbine last September. Aurora Lights was consigned by Darby Dan to the 2007 Keeneland September yearling sale, where she sold for $800,000 to Chiefswood Stables. Aurora Lights is a half-sister to the $1.1 million dollar earner Master Command.

Bearpath got his graded victory on the Gulfstream green, winning the 1 1/2-mile, $150,000 Pan American S. (G3) on Mar. 27 for his first stakes victory. Darby Dan consigned, as agent for breeder Whisper Hill Farm, Bearpath to the 2007 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, where he sold for $170,000. Bred in Kentucky and out of the unraced Unbridled’s Song mare Song ‘n Silk, Bearpath has earned $184,630.
