Sales-Topping Darain Transferred To Brad Cox In The United States

The most expensive yearling of 2018, Qatar Racing’s Darain has been transferred from trainer John Gosden’s yard to the barn of trainer Brad Cox in the United States, reports racingpost.com. Sold for 3.5 million guineas at Tattersalls (approximately US$4.8 million), the full brother to champion 2-year-old Too Darn Hot has won two of his four starts and most recently finished seventh in the Group 2 Darley Stakes at Newmarket on Oct. 10.

“Sheikh Fahad and John Gosden decided the US style of racing may suit Darain a bit better than over here and he’s joined Brad Cox who is based at Keeneland,” said David Redvers, racing manager to Qatar Racing. “I’d think Darain would have the option of racing on turf or dirt as his sire has a decent record with runners on the latter. The US operation is something Sheikh Fahad is keen on and hopefully the horse can prosper over there.”

Sired by Dubawi and out of the three-time Group 1-winning Singspiel mare Dar Re Mi, Darain has two additional full siblings, including Group 1-placed Lah Ti Dar and Group 3 winner So Mi Dar.
