Suave Retires to Darby Dan Farm

SUAVE, a son of A. P. Indy bred by Mace and Samantha Siegel out of their GI winning millionaire Urbane, will be retired to Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, KY at the conclusion of his 2006 racing career.

A millionaire, multiple graded stakes winner, and track record-setter in graded competition - SUAVE won graded events at Churchill, Saratoga and Arlington Park. Those wins include the G2 Saratoga Breeders’ Cup Handicap and G2 Washington Park Handicap (NTR – 1:53.53). He also finished second at Belmont in the 2005 GI Jockey Club Gold Cup. Trained by Paul McGee, Suave has seven lifetime wins and has earned over $1.3 million.

Suave’s dam is the multiple Grade I winning mare Urbane, who captured the GI Ashland at Keeneland and the GI John A. Morris Handicap at Saratoga. A daughter of Citidancer, Urbane traces her roots to the heralded blue hen mare Dumfries, dam of legendary sire Lyphard.

John Phillips, co-managing partner of Darby Dan Farm, said “A son of A. P. Indy who could carry natural speed has been a goal of Darby Dan for some time. Suave caught our attention in a big way with his track record at Arlington. With Urbane and the strength of his female family, Suave has all the criteria to be a successful sire.”
