Darby Dan's freshman sire Suave got his eighth first-crop winner on Oct. 6, when Social Statement was easily best in a seven-furlong maiden special weight over the main track at Belmont Park. All of Suave's winners have won in maiden special company, and he has sired more winners than any other freshman son of A.P. Indy standing in Kentucky.

Suave has 84 two-year-olds in his freshman crop, and he has the second-most repeat winners of any freshman sire in the nation. He already recorded his first stakes winner, Tlaquepaque, who took the New Westminster S. on Aug. 26.

Newest winner Social Statement is a New York-bred, owned and raced by Larry Goichman. Social Statement won her second lifetime start by three lengths as the 8-5 favorite and was never headed at any point in the race. She checked in fourth after a rough trip in her debut Aug. 29 at Saratoga. She has earned $32,960.

A nine-year-old by A.P. Indy out of multiple Grade 1 winner Urbane, by Citidancer, Suave won seven of 27 career starts over four seasons and earned $1,348,423. He won the 2006 Washington Park Handicap (G2) at Arlington Park in track-record time of 1:53.53 for 1 3/16-miles. His other graded wins came in the 2005 Saratoga Breeders’ Cup Handicap (G2) and the 2004 Northern Dancer Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs. He also finished second in the ’05 Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1).
