Rangal Park stallion Danerich is on a roll and the winning run continued with Elwick Jack at Moe on Saturday.
Elwick Jack (3g Danerich – Stage Crossing by Lacryma Cristi) was very impressive on debut in the Monacellars Maiden Plate (1100m). He jumped the gun from the gates and showed plenty of determination to deny the even-money favourite Taxi Driver (Fastnet Rock).
Elwick Jack’s dam Stage Crossing ran fourth to champion filly Alinghi in the 2003 Debutante Stakes at Caulfield but her career was cut short after just two starts.
Danerich has now sired 14 individual winners from his first crop headed by brilliant colt Didntcostalot. The Marc Conners trained flyer broke the Wyong track record when he clocked 62.32s for 1100m in October.
Didntcostalot completed a winning hat-trick at Gosford and Warwick Farm and will defend an unbeaten record when he returns to racing in February.
Apart from the 14 winners, Danerich is also the sire of Perth filly Voices of Spring who was stakes placed in the LR Burgess Queen Stakes at Ascot in October.
Danerich was one of Danehill’s fastest sons winning the McNeil Stakes at Caulfield and Mitchell McKenzie Stakes at Moonee Valley. Rangal Park owner Eric Buttler stands him at the Euroa nursery alongside Keltrice and Ne Coupez Pas.
Danerich’s third crop contains 75 yearlings but there aren’t any catalogued for the 2012 Inglis Premier Sale at Oaklands Junction.
In an all too familiar scenario for Victorian breeders, Rangal Park did make the cut for the Premier Sale with its yearlings by Commands & Domesday (Darley) and Tale of the Cat & Duke of Marmalade (Coolmore).
