Yeomanstown's Star Sire Dark Angel Stays at 60k

Dark Angel | Yeomanstown Stud

Leading sire Dark Angel (Ire) will remain at €60,000 for 2023 as Yeomanstown Stud released fee details on Friday. 

Battaash (Ire) and Harry Angel (Ire) flew the flag for Dark Angel at the highest level in recent seasons and the 17-year-old broke new ground with French Classic scorer Mangoustine (Fr) this term. 

First-season sire Invincible Army (Ire) remains at €7,500 while Supremacy (Ire) has been dropped to €10,000 from €12,500. Shaman's (Ire) first foals sell this autumn and he remains at €5,000.

Gay O'Callaghan said, “Dark Angel has had another sensational year at stud, proving himself once again as the Group 1 champion sprinter-miler sire for the third consecutive year and a champion two-year-old sire. 

“He is now the sire of 13 individual Group 1 winners, including his Classic-winning daughter Mangoustine, a decisive winner of  the Poule d'Essaie des Pouliches.”

“It's been exciting watching Invincible Army's yearlings sell this autumn. The exceptional son of Invincible Spirit (Ire) was a Group winner at two, three and four and his progeny have been well supported in the sales ring by trainers, agents, and owners alike who were impressed by the excellent quality of his stock which share his attributes of strength and class. In total he had 57 yearlings sold at auction for an average of €57,680.”

He added, “We look forward to the first foals of Supremacy to be born this spring.  As a Group 1-winning son of champion sire Mehmas (Ire), he is an exciting prospect and a wonderful-looking individual who showed a high level of ability and toughness on the track.  

“Shaman had his first foals in 2022 and produced an exceptional first crop, so we are looking forward to seeing them in the sales ring this winter.”
