Dark Red

Grey Gelding
DOB: 28 Mar 2012
Dark Angel x Essexford (Spinning World)
Owner: The Hon R J Arculli

Dark Red has been a tremendous servant over a number of years. By the tremendous Dark Angel, he is out of a Spinning World mare who won over 7f as a two-year-old. Dark Red was bought at the October Yearling Sales at Tattersalls for 82,000gns.

Dark Red proved a consistent three-year-old, finishing in the first four on each of his six starts, before exploding into life at four. His three consecutive victories included the City and Suburban at Epsom as he rose up the handicapper. As a five-year-old last year he continued to run with credit all year long, adding to his tally with a victory in a class 2 handicap at York in October.

Typically, he continued to run well in 2018, mixing it between a mile and a mile and a quarter, before his season was curtailed by injury after Glorious Goodwood.

He continued to run with credit in 2019 without getting his head back in front. He is a delightful horse to have in the yard.
