G1 winner All American arrives at Darby Dan
RSS Feeds Sunday, December 26, 2010

G1 winner and millionaire All American arrived at Darby Dan Farm in Lexington late Thursday, Dec. 23. for the 2011 breeding season. The 5-year-old stallion bred a full book in the southern hemisphere at Arrowfield Stud in Australia before shipping to his new home at Darby Dan to complete his first season at stud. Despite his strong reception at $16,500 in Australia, All American is set to stand for $10,000 stands and nurses, and is immediately available for inspection at Darby Dan.

All American is a G1-winning and record-setting miler from the legendary Roberto sire line. Darby Dan, long-time home of Roberto, acquired a part of the stallion earlier this year to join its 2011 roster. By Red Ransom out of the multiple graded stakes-producing Strawberry Road mare Milva, All American hails from the direct family of Rock Hard Ten and Kentucky Derby winner Gato Del Sol.  Importantly, All American is free of any Northern Dancer for five generations.

“Something we are extremely familiar with here at Darby Dan is Roberto, and All American is the best remaining influence I've seen from that sire line,” said John Phillips, owner of Darby Dan. “He truly possesses all of Roberto's best traits, especially a solid juvenile campaign. He came in looking absolutely tremendous, and I invite all to come see him at the farm. He's a must-see individual.”

All American scored his biggest win a year ago in the $1 million Emirates S. (G1) at Flemington racetrack in record time, defeating six other G1 stakes winners. At two, he won the Skyline S. (G3) and was also G1-placed, making him the only graded stakes-winning juvenile from the Roberto sire line standing in Kentucky.
