Above: Lot 434 Danerich x Idolwise (filly)
Danerich will be dominating most of the draft for Rangal Park Stud at this year’s Melbourne Gold Sale. There will be ten yearlings in the Rangal Park’s consignment with seven of these being by Danerich. This is no surprise as Danerich is one of four stallions standing at Rangal Park in Eurora, alongside Boomtime, Soul Patch and Cliff’s Edge.
‘They are very nice types and have been pleased how they have come along. It is now for the eyes of the buyer.’ Remarked Eric Buttler from Rangal Park.
There is a Danerich by Firestorm Baby that has caught Eric’s attention, ‘I believe the Firestorm Baby filly (Lot 393) will catch people’s eye as she is striking to look at. I think she should hold herself up pretty well. She will hold residual value.’ Lot 185 is another highlight, the Danerich filly by Stage Doll by a Stakes winning mare. However, it is the Danerich filly x Idolwise (Lot 438) that has really impressed Eric in her preparation. She is the first foal by the Artie Schiller mare, Idolwise. Two colts from Royal Sonata and Homeland Sheila will catch buyers eyes.
Eric is confident that all of the Danerich’s that he is offering should sell well next week. ‘The Danerich’s are good solid horses provided you don’t push them too early. If you can persevere and give them time you can reap the rewards later on.’ A prime example of this is Flow Meter who is a ten-year-old gelding by Danerich. He has had 137 starts and 15 wins including a Stakes places and is still racing in South Australia.
Danerich has nine stakes winners to his name including Ritch Itch on Turnbull Stakes day last year. Although Danerich himself was lightly raced during his racing career his speed on the track was stand-out with wins including Group 3 McNeil Stakes, the Listed Mitchell McKenzie Stakes and he was placed second in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes and third to Apache Cat and God’s Own in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude.
Danerich has produced winners from 900m to 3200m and since his stud career in 2007 has proved he is a consistence performer. ‘Danerich is the most under-rated stallion in Australia and seriously updates his mares. He is a very fertile stallion and hasn’t been punished with excessive books. His rewards are quite remarkable for what mares he has had.’
