Darby Dan's freshman sire Suave got his ninth first-crop winner on Oct. 9, with Ari's Ferrari scoring by 2 1/4-lengths in a six furlong maiden race at Camerero Race Track in Puerto Rico.  Suave is the third-ranked freshman sire in North America of multiple winners, and he has sired more winners than any other freshman son of A.P. Indy standing in Kentucky. He already recorded his first stakes winner, Tlaquepaque, who took the New Westminster S. on Aug. 26.

Ari's Ferrari, a bay filly, was bred in Kentucky by Wendy Christ and E. W. Wingerter.

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).
