We selected only one at Goff’s, this good-looking colt by DARK ANGEL ex POPPET’S PASSION. Athletic with a swinging walk, he looks every inch his Champion sire (albeit not grey!). He took to pre-training very well and has since settled into training with Roger Varian, looking very light on his feet. He has great potential and looks like a mid-summer prospect for next year. Roger gave us his thoughts on him below:
Dark Angel ex Poppet’s Passion is a very likeable colt. He is a well-grown, medium sized colt. He shows a very good attitude to his work, and he is naturally athletic. It is early days of course, but he gives us a very positive impression at this stage. - ROGER VARIAN
By Champion Two-year-old Sire DARK ANGEL - Leading sire of sprinters and milers the likes of BATTAASH and PERSUASIVE! His record speaks for itself, having been the Group 1 Champion Sprinter/Miler Sire for three years running. He is renowned as a Sire of Sires, and hails from the stallion-producing ACCLAMATION himself.
DARK ANGEL - sire of 13 individual Group 1 winners!
