Three-year-old filly Funny Moon became the latest Grade 1 winner to come out of the sales program at Darby Dan when she captured the $300,000 CCA Oaks (G1) July 25th at Belmont.

The attractive chestnut was part of the Darby Dan Farm consignment at the 2007 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale, selling for $175,000 to Morrowdale Farm. Conditioned by Christophe Clement, Funny Moon owns four wins and runner-up effort from six lifetime starts with earnings of $265,900 for owner Mrs. C. McNeely, III.

“She’s the most lovely mover, my filly. She’s very efficient and she has a very long stride. I've been saying all along this is the best horse on dirt we've trained since Dynever,” said Clement, referring to the multiple graded stakes winner who finished third in the 2003 Breeders' Cup Classic.
