Vital Equine | Bay Entire (2004)
VITAL EQUINE - the highest rated two year old son of DANETIME
DANETIME is undoubtedly one of the finest horses ever to stand at stud in Western Australia.
VITAL EQUINE is the highest rated two year old son of DANETIME to stand anywhere in the world (Timeform rating of 113). Out of a SELKIRK mare his pedigree possesses the same DANZIG/SHARPEN UP cross that has produced DANEHILL DANCER, INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and DYLAN THOMAS.
Unbeaten in his first three starts as a 2 year old between 1200m and 1400m, it was his record breaking win in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes over 1400m at York in the United Kingdom that showcased his immense talent. His performance could not have been more impressive as he defeated eventual Group 1 winners COCKNEY REBEL and EAGLE MOUNTAIN along the way.
It should not surprise anybody that this world-class 2yo is now producing 2yo winners in his first (and only) Northern Hemisphere crop. With only 12 starters to date he has produced 5 individual winners and 5-place getter in France and England.
Well supported by local breeders he covered a strong book of mares again last season and his first crop yearlings are impressing breakers and trainers alike.
VITAL EQUINE has always represented a great opportunity to breed to a world-class son of the great DANETIME but his early winners now make it a compelling choice. We may never fully appreciate what a loss DANETIME was to the local industry but in VITAL EQUINE we no doubt are seeing the heir apparent.
