DEMARCHELIER (GB) (c, 3, Dubawi {Ire}–Loveisallyouneed {Ire}, by Sadler’s Wells) named a ‘TDN Rising Star’ on debut, backed up that effort by running down MGISW Oscar Performance (Kitten’s Joy) half-brother Award Winner (Ghostzapper) in the closing stages of a first-level allowance at Keeneland. Left with a lot to do at the top of the lane when favored first-out Nov. 21 at Aqueduct, the 425,000gns purchase showed a strong late kick to get up over Seismic Wave (Tapit), recent winner of the Cutler Bay S. at Gulfstream. Made the 8-5 favorite to double up in his 3-year-old debut, the bay came away well and traveled in seventh behind splits of :24.23 and :49.71 over the good ground. Advancing three wide midway around the far turn, he swung five deep at the top of the lane and drew alongside Award Winner at the eighth pole. Appearing poised to blow past that one, Demarchelier encountered a stubborn foe, but kept grinding to edge to the lead late and score a half-length success in 1:44.63. The winner’s unraced dam is a full-sister to G1SWs and Irish Highweights Yesterday (Ire) and Quarter Moon (Ire), the latter of which produced G1SW Diamondsandrubies (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}). This is also the female family of MG1SWs Aussie Rules (Danehill), Alborada (GB) (Alzao) and Albanova (GB) (Alzao). Loveisallyouneed is responsible for a juvenile Sea The Stars (Ire) colt and a yearlingcolt by Golden Horn (GB). Sales history: S425,000gns Ylg ’17 TATOCT. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $78,520.
