A track record-breaking son of Champion Sire Frankel.
A winner at two over 1200m at Deauville, Delaware captured the Listed Prix de Tourgeville (1600m) by three lengths at three before stepping up in class and winning G3 Prix Daphnis (1600m) by four lengths, in the lead up to the Group 1 French Guineas.
Transferred to America where he continued his race career, Delaware won the Listed Danger’s Hour Stakes, recording a track record time on the turf at Aqueduct of 1.33.67.
As a speedy son of Frankel, himself the fastest stallion in history to achieve 50 Group winners, Delaware is out of the Oasis Dream half-sister to Champion and Group 1 winner Byword, himself a G1 producing sire, as well as the triple Group 1 winner Proviso and Group 1-winning, multiple Group 1 placed Finche.
As the most prolific stakes-winning son of what can be considered one of the most exciting sores in the world, Delaware offers breeders not only the opportunity to access the Frankel bloodline, but the added element of speed, a factor the local market craves.
We encourage potential breeders to watch the replays of Delaware, a horse who’s race pattern is very much suited to the Australian market, able to sustain his electric speed on the pace.
