California Danes' Little Devil

13 September 2010

The very promising early signs concerning the flourishing stud career of California Dane continued at the beginning of September when a first-crop filly by the name of Californian Devil won the initial 2-year-old barrier trial staged anywhere in Australia this new racing season.
Staged over 1000 metres at Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, the Phillip Stokes-trained youngster posted a two-length victory on a slow racing surface and is now the first in line for the initial juvenile contests set to take place in South Australia later in the month.
Even before his initial progeny have lined-up for their first competitive race, the offspring of California Dane have made a tremendously positive impression. Recent events in more than one thoroughbred arena have witnessed the stallion's stock:-


* Fetch as much as $150,000 as first-crop yearlings.


* Enter into training with Lee Freedman, Gai Waterhouse, John O'Shea, Allan Denham, Alan Bailey, Phillip Stokes and the like.


* Sell to $105,000 as second-crop weanlings.


* Post the first barrier trial success of the new 2010/11 2-year-old racing season.


Adelaide trial winner Californian Devil is well-known to Baerami Thoroughbreds principal Paul Higgins, who is naturally delighted for all concerned. “She was bred by Michael Coleman, a very good client of the farm,” explained Higgins. “The filly was a late foal, born November 16, which makes the result more meritorious. Born and raised at Baerami, she was a lovely horse from the get-go and received a very high rating at birth.”


Higgins also added: “Apparently, Lee Freedman has one that is going sensationally also. Greg White tells me one of theirs [Hobartville Stud] with Allan Denham is going for the early trials and hopefully the early races. Greg Hickman raves about his. Gerald Ryan has one that has pleased no end. And David Chester was also telling me that the one he purchased for Pat Duff has also been very impressive in all they have asked him to do.


"Though it is obviously still very early days, the California Danes keep on answering all the challenges and are yet to put a foot wrong. Certainly, we could not have asked for much more than what they have so far delivered and there seems to be some very interesting times waiting ahead. Quite possibly in the immediate future!"

California Dane has just commenced covering his fourth book of mares at Baerami Thoroughbreds at a service fee of $11,000 (inc GST). As Higgins pointed out: "If all the signs we have received are anything to go by, that might represent outstanding value in another 12 months time".
