Ontrack with Bernardini
Filly by Bernardini (ex Darsini by Danehill)
This filly is by Darley's champion sire, Bernardini, named Champion Three-Year-Old Colt of 2006 in America. During that classic season Bernardini won six races, consecutively, and they included the Grade 3 Withers Stakes, Grade 1 Preakness Stakes, Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes , Grade 1 Travers Stakes and the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup.
Crowned Eclipse Champion three-year-old, Bernardini, won the Grade 3 Withers Stakes at just his third start, before winning the Grade1 Preakness Stakes.
The Preakness Stakes is a leg of America's coveted Triple Crown, and, was the first leg of a historic Grade 1 treble as he followed up with victories in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes and Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup and joined Man O’War in 1920 and Damascus in 1967 as the only other winners of this treble of races.
Bernardini, won the Grade 2 Jim Dandy Stakes between his wins in the Preakness and the Travers Stakes - a race which he won by nine lengths - and upon his retirement to stud duties.
Bernardini is out of the two-year-old Grade 1 winner, Cara Rafaela (by Quiet American) and his sire, A.P. Indy is by U.S. Triple Crown winner, Seattle Slew.
To date Bernardini has sired 15 stakes winners, headed by four Grade 1 winners in Biondetti (ex Lyphard's Delta by Lyphard), A Z Warrior (ex Carson Jen by Carson City), Stay Thirsty (ex Marozia by Storm Bird) and To Honor And Serve (ex Pilfer by Deputy Minister).
In Australia, Bernardini's stock are off to a great start with the Listed winner Boban (ex Kenbelle by Kenmare) showing the way with two wins and more than $85,000 earnings. Accompanied by the Group 2 and Listed placed Meidung (ex Amish by Canny Lad) with earnings of more than $100,000. All up his progeny in the Southern Hemisphere have won $366,107 at the close of 2011-12 season.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Bernardini's progeny have earnings of more than $11million of August 3rd.
Not Enough? This filly is out of Darsini (by Danehill) who only had a short eight-start racing career before retiring for stud duties in the spring of 2004 to be covered by Galileo. Producing a bay colt the following Spring, that then sold at the Inglis Easter Yearling sale for $190,000, to the bid of Demi O'Byrne from Ireland.
The following spring Darsini missed to Dubai Destination and was sent to New Zealand to be covered by Zabeel. Producing a healthy brown colt, now named Good View, was purchased by Bart Cummings for his Leilani Lodge stable for $175,000.
The next yearling was withdrawn from the William Inglis Premier sale, and, has since been named Mahisara (by More Than Ready) and is trained by Paul Messara from his base at Scone and has earned more than $200,000 from three wins that includes the Listed Tattersall's 2YO Stakes.
In 2009, Darsini's chestnut colt by General Nediym sold to Rick Worthington in the sum of $150,000 and Trevor Bailey paid $41,000 for this bay filly by Bernardini at the this year's Magic Millions National Yearling Sale.
A three-quarter sister to the very talented Group 2 MVRC W. H. Stock Stakes winner, Astrodame (by Flying Spur) a winner of more than $500,000 on the track, Darsini hails from the very fast Midnight Fever (by Luskin Star), a winner of the Group 1 MRC Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).
This bay filly was offered by Vinery Stud, as agent, and commanded nice presence and, has the Group 1 VRC Australian Guineas winner Rock Classic in the family and offers prospective clients plenty of residual value, too.
The syndicate will be managed by Grant Morgan from Ontrack Thoroughbreds.
Trevor gained extensive experience alongside his champion premiership and Group 1 winning father Alan Bailey, and headed up the families Caulfield (Victoria) stable, which produced a host of stakes winners over a three year period.
Trevor then branched out on his own to enjoy Group 1 success in Singapore, before returning to the Gold Coast where he has enjoyed immediate success from that base.
Trevor has produced stakes winners including Fabiarna, Barlinnie and Perfect Feelings, as well as feature winners Faster Son and Devinardi. He has been runner up in the Gold Coast trainers premiership on two occasions and in February earlier this year Bailey moved to New South Wales to setup a 25 horse stable at Newcastle.
