Darby Dan Sales consignments produced two stakes winners on July 10, giving the sales program five stakes horses in the past eight days.

At Monmouth, European stakes winner Violon Sacre unleashed a furious run in the $100,000 Battlefield Stakes, to earn his first U.S. victory. Making just his second start stateside, the son of Stravinsky poured it on from the far outside, and got up in the final strides to take the mile event in 1:35 1/5. The 2009 French stakes winner now has a record of 14-8-2-0, and earnings of $239,107. A Darby Dan Keeneland September yearling graduate, Violon Sacre was bred in Kentucky by Ocala Horses LLC, and races for Bernard Weill and trainer Patrick Biancone.

In England, Group 1 winner Lord Shanakill carried 128 lbs. to victory under a confident ride, in the 7-furlong Totepool City Plate at Chester. The son of Speightstown out of Green Room, by Theatrical was sold for $110,000 at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale, and now has earnings in excess of $772,000. He was bred by Vimal & Gillian Khosla & Templeton Stud, and races for Mogeely Stud and Mark Gittens.

These stakes winners are among 38 stakes horses of the past 2 ½ years consigned by Darby Dan Sales.
