Lah Ti Dar was always going to attract keen attention as the latest progeny out of the esteemed Dar Re Mi to hit the track and she was duly sent off the 7-2 joint favourite for this race won four times since 2010 by the John Gosden stable. Settled in fourth early by Frankie Dettori, the bay homebred was coaxed into contention in early straight and had the measure of Arcadian Cat (Kitten’s Joy) with two furlongs remaining. Asked to stretch all the way to the line, she built momentum to power away for an ultimately impressive six-length success. Dar Re Mi, who was a TDN Rising Star herself when successful by seven lengths in a Sandown maiden in April 10 years ago, went on to win three times at the top level in the Yorkshire Oaks, Pretty Polly S. and Dubai Sheema Classic. Also controversially disqualified from first place in the G1 Prix Vermeille, she is a daughter of the 1986 Vermeille heroine Darara whose other progeny included the ill-fated G1 Prince of Wales’s S. and G1 Dubai Sheema Classic hero Rewilding (GB) (Tiger Hill {Ire}) and the Hong Kong champion Diaghilev (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells). Dar Re Mi’s daughter So Mi Dar (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) was built in her image, winning the G3 Musidora S. and finishing third in the G1 Prix de l’Opera, GSW-Eng & G1SP-Fr, $242,742, while she also produced the smart De Treville (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), MGSP-Fr, $112,069, her first foal who sold for 850,000gns at Tattersalls five years ago. Her 2016 and 2017 colts are both also by Dubawi. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $7,789.
