Keltrice was 22 years of age and has endured good health until recently. Keltrice a Group 1 winner of the Lightning Stakes and runner up in Blue Diamond Stakes behind Lady Jakeo stood at Rangal Park Stud since his retirement from the track in 1995.

Keltrice’s pedigree is free of Northern Dancer, Mr Prospector, Star Kingdom and Sir Tristram blood, which has stood him in good stead as a broodmare sire with Stakes performers the likes of Lady Melksham, Celebrity Girl, Publishing, Jacqueline Rouge, Satin Robes, Midnight Mustang, Uxorious, Lyell, Immortality, Miss Mooney Mooney, Destruction, The Annihilator, Megadeal, Rhumb Line, Albaicin, Stop Sookin and Poised to Win and many more to come.
Keltrice will be buried at Rangal Park Stud alongside stallion Palace Music and mare Jovan and will be sadly missed by all the staff that worked with him.

The consistent Flying Skipper has continued his trainers great form, the John Hickmott trained 3 year old was given a gun ride by Steven King to win by a short half head. Settling in the second half of the field Steven peeled Flying Skipper of the rails to be given an uninterrupted run down the straight to win just on the post. Flying Skipper will now head to the Sandown Guineas.
Chloe has Class
Danerich has produced his second stakes winner when Classy Chloe (Capital Growth) won the Listed SAJC Durbridge Stakes over 1200m. Classy Chloe was backed from even money into $1.80 but was given no favours when trapped three wide the entire trip and only hit the front on the line. Classy Chloe has been a very a very consistent mare winning 5 of her 11 starts with 3 seconds and two thirds, only ever missing a place last start when dissapointed for a run for the entire straight at Caulfield in the listed Sportingbet Sprint Series Final. But the start before that when resuming she was simply awesome when she ran second in the Group 3 Sprint Series Heat behind Detours but finishing in front of subsequent winners Mosheen and Mrs Onassis. Trainer John Hickmont has always had a good opinion of her and has placed her beautifully throughout her career and she has won over $200,000 in stakes.
Great Strike Rate
Improving young stallion Danerich is putting together an impressive strike rate of late, with his progeny's last 35 race starts he has produced 7 wins and 11 placings including 4 city wins (Didntcostalot, Lady Searcy, Legcut and Rich Bonus) and a further 4 city place getters. Didntcostalot resumed at Sandown in impressive style and will be looking for better races over the Spring. He won his first 3 race starts including his Maiden in track record time at Wyong before competing against the best 3 year olds around where he become stakes placed in the Listed BRC Mick Dittman Plate and the Listed ATC Fireball Handicap.
Legcut (Danerich - Pentiara) makes in two in a row progressing from a Moe Maiden Plate to a Saturday Metro win in the Hindmarsh Plumbing Handicap at Morphettville and now has won 2 of her 3 race starts. Legcut was very well supported in the betting ring and lead through out to pull away from the rest of the field to win very comfortably.

Jovan who passed away recently is buried on the property beside the champion sire Palace Music.
Lady Searcy in a canter
Danerich filly Lady Searcy (Deadwood Stage) maintained her good form after her first up victory in a Geelong Maiden, to destroy her rivals in the MRC Centrebet Handicap at Mornington by 5 lengths. Lady Searcy lead through out and put daylight between her and her rivals in a very commanding victory. Owner breeder David MacKintosh was elated with the victory and obviously has a good opinion of her as he has already booked the mother Deadwood Stage to be served again by the same sire Danerich. Also elated was the trainer Carole Heffernan who brought up her first metropolitan winner.
Heaven seeks Derby riches
Danerich has produced his first stakes winner in Heaven's Riches (Nassi Angel by Nassipour). Heaven's Riches was successful in the 2000m Chairmans Stakes at Morphettville at Group 3 level. Although not given a chance by the punters his trainer Robbie Laing has always had an opinion of the Danerich colt. Robbie has had set him for the South Australian Derby as his main goal for some time. Heaven's Riches was ridden beautifully by Michael Walker who had him positioned on the rails mid field and peeled out on straightening but was pushed back to fourth last, once clear he flew down the centre of the track and was still going strong on the line. With the way he finished of this race over 2000m, that and the fact that he would meet mostly the same horses again, next Saturdays Derby should be right up his ally, his trainer must be very confident his horse will be a major player in the Group 1 event. Heaven's Riches was bred by Rangal Park Stud, his dam Nassi Angel is a full sister to Shiva's Revenge who himself won a South Australian Derby before running 2nd in a Melbourne Cup behind Lets Elope.
Ne Coupez Pas Shouting Loud and Proud
Rangal Park Stud stallion Ne Coupez Pas progeny has continued their good recent form with two stakes placed horses within a week. The first being French Tang who was taken to Tasmania for the Listed Hobart Guineas over 2100m by trainer Greg Eurell after some good city form in Melbourne. French Tang all but blew her chances after slightly missing the start, losing all advantage of her inside barrier and also got hampered leaving the straight the first time and was pushed back to last, gaining a lot of credit by strongly working home in the straight to finish third. Then Shout Out Loud lined up in the Listed John Dillion Stakes at Caulfield over 1400m. Shout Out Loud sat outside the leader Danzylum the entire way and looked poised to win until the Caulfield Cup winner Southern Speed came down the outside to just take the advantage on the line.
Son of Danerich makes it three in a row
The flying son of Danerich Didntcostalot has taken his strike rate to three wins from three starts. After his enormous effort at Wyong by winning in track record time at debut, to win by 5.5 lengths, he followed that by breaking the second up hoodoo with a solid win at Gosford carrying the top weight of 58kg to win by 1.5 lengths. He then progressed to city class, winning the Styletread .com.au Handicap at Warwick Farm by 2.5 lengths, in a time of 1:03.89 for the 1100m event on slow ground proving he is bomb prove on firm or wet ground. Trained by Marc Conners who declared before the race that he would spell Didntcostalot after the race and he would be brought back in the autumn to head for better races.
Down Under Boy blows them away.
Down Under Boy (Ne Coupez Pas - Up Over Girl) came with a well timed run to win the Emirates Airlines Handicap, the final race of the Flemington carnival. Down Under Boy was resuming when he settled 3rd last after starting from barrier 17. At the huge odds of 70 to 1 he blew many punters away but has now earnt over $460,000 in prize money.
Didntcostalot but can run
Following on from his excellent 4.8 length trial win on October 4th, Didntcostalot (DANERICH – COSTI) thrashed his rivals by 5.5 lengths to win in a track record time of 1-02.32 for the 1,100m event at Wyong today (13.10.2011) beating Rose of Kings 2005 time by .01. The son of Danerich could not have been any more impressive and to add even more credit to the win, this was done at his debut race start. Didntcostalot also ran almost a full second faster than the class one race and almost two seconds faster than the other Maiden Plate all over the same distance. Trained by Marc Conners and ridden by Jeff Penza, this colt was purchased at the National Yearling Sale for a mere $3,000 and certainly has a bright future as according to his jockey he has obvious improvement still in him.
Celebrity Girl shows her class.
Celebrity Girl showed her class when completely thrashing her rivals in the Listed VRC Cap D'Antibes Stakes, trainer Mark Kavanagh was very pleased with the filly saying she has always showed them she had ability. Celebrity Girl has now won both her race starts and is well up there in the betting for The Thousand Guineas and the VRC Oaks which will be her main goals. Her dam Dashing Granada herself finished 4th in both the Thousand Guineas and the VRC Oaks. Dashing Granada was bred by Rangal Park Stud and is a full sister to Northeast Sheila.

PALACE MUSIC PASSES ON
On Friday 4th January 2008 we had the sad task of euthanasing International Champion Sire PALACE MUSIC (USA) at the grand age of 27.
A son of English Derby winner The Minstrel and the Prince John mare Come My Prince PALACE MUSIC raced in France , England and the US , winning the Group 1 Champion Stakes in England in 1984 and the John Henry Hcp as well as stakes races in France .
PALACE MUSIC commenced his stud career in Kentucky and also stood in Japan , New Zealand and Australia , sired 33 Stakes winners, including World Champions CIGAR and NATURALISM, and became Champion Sire in North America in 1996 due largely to the deeds of CIGARís 19 race wins and just under US$10m stakes. NATURALISM emulated the deeds of his sire in winning the 1992 Group 1 AJC Derby .
He stood at Rangal Park Stud from 1998 until his retirement in 2005 and went on to prove himself an outstanding Broodmare Sire, becoming Champion Victorian Broodmare Sire in 2002-2003 and again in 2005-2006.

As one career came to an end, DANERICH had a great start to his, covering 122 mares in the 2007 season with an excellent fertility rate. Watch this space next spring for details of his first foals.
KELTRICE was awarded Breednet Sire of the Week at the end of December 2007 after siring six individual winners in the week ending 26 th December. KELTRICE is a consistent sire of winners with the very smart mare STORM SIGNAL leading the way this season. In recent years he has settled into a pattern of serving around 50 mares each spring mainly for owner/breeders. Being free of Northern Dancer, Sir Tristram, Mr Prospector and Star Kingdom , he is well suited to a wide range of Australian bred mares and is proving his credentials as a broodmare sire with the likes of PUBLISHING recently winning the Group 3 Standish Hcp.
NE COUPEZ PAS
NE COUPEZ PAS (USA)ís runners have been firing with French Trap winning at Strathalbyn, Je Ne Sais Pas (Moonee Valley), Jade The Lady and Primato (Kyneton), Jenolan (Seymour) and Oompa (4 wins).
Former Melbourne Cup heroine Sheila Laxon and her partner, John Symons, can't wait to get to Flemington on Saturday. The pair, among the first in Victoria to take out a training partnership 14 months ago, are hopeful of winning the $1.5m. AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m.) with improving son of Ne Coupez Pas, Down Under Boy. Although successful in their own right - Laxon primarily through Ethereal and Symons best known through the deeds of Bel Esprit - this will be first AAMI Victoria Derby starter for either trainer. Amazingly, Laxon has not saddled-up a Group 1 runner since Ethereal powered down the Flemington straight to win the 2001 Melbourne Cup.
"Once you've had a thrill like winning the Melbourne Cup you want to get back to that level again. You can't wait to have another taste of it," Laxon said. Life has certainly presented its challenges to Laxon since she became a darling of the turf when Ethereal completed the Caulfield/Melbourne Cup double. The first of those came just 10 months after that magic Tuesday at Flemington when Laxon suffered a major injury when thrown from a horse at Mt Macedon. She broke her back, cracked five ribs, punctured a lung and her pelvic bone popped out of its socket. "It was a long road back from that. It took a long, long time to get better. I can remember it all too vividly,'' the former New Zealand trainer said.
Symons seems just as excited as Laxon to be heading to Flemington with a Group 1 contender on Saturday, particularly for an elite staying race like the AAMI Victoria Derby. "It's great Sheila's got a runner in a major staying event," Symons said. "She puts a lot of time into him. They (horses) are her passion."
Down Under Boy is certainly not just making up the numbers. His past two runs have been those of a horse looking for a genuine staying trip at Flemington. Two starts back he was beaten in a photo-finish in the Group 2 Norman Robinson Stakes by Pillar Of Hercules. The then AAMI Victoria Derby favourite, Villain, was centimetres behind him in third place. Down Under Boy backed-up in last Saturday's Group 2 AAMI Vase where he again impressed with a strong fourth to Marching.
"It was a good run," Symons said. "Blake (Shinn) rode a great race on him, but he just got held up and shuffled back a little in the field around the 800m. He ran home well after that and pulled a fair bit of ground from them." Symons described Down Under Boy as a "tough little horse" and there was a good reason for backing-up so quickly at Moonee Valley. "I've been playing catch-up with him a little because he missed a run at Moonee Valley early in the spring due to the racing we missed because of equine influenza," he said.
Down Under Boy has had 13 starts for one win, four seconds and a third, but Symons said that record should read better. "He hasn't been the luckiest horse," he said. "It goes back to when he was a two-year-old and first past the post in the Group 3 South Australian Sires' Produce Stakes, but they (controversially) relegated him to second," he said. "Then when he came back this preparation he didn't have a lot of luck in his early races,'' Symons said.
Symons fondly remembers the early part of this decade thanks to the success he enjoyed as trainer of the star sprinter Bel Esprit. That's when Symons was private trainer for Kurt Stern at Macedon Lodge in Woodend. Over the past couple of years Symons and Laxon have taken a step back and taken time to develop their new training complex at Seymour. It features a 2300m track, which contains a figure eight track inside of it. "We've also got an 800m uphill run and another straight 600m run from barriers," Symons said.
Down Under Boy is raced by a group of owners headed by his breeder Eric Buttler, the owner of Rangal Park Stud in Euroa where Ne Coupez Pas, the sire of Down Under Buy, stands. Ne Coupez Pas has proven successful with limited opportunities from two small crops to race so far. He topped both the Victorian first and second season sires' list with a crop that are now four-year-olds. Down Under Boy is out of the winning Western Symphony mare Up Over Girl who is a half-sister to the Group winner Northeast Shelia and Stakes winners Dashing Granada and Kablammo.
Symons insists Down Under Boy is heading into the AAMI Victoria Derby with a genuine winning chance. "If we sit back and he gets a reasonable run, I think he will be finishing well," he said. "Just the way he races suggests to me he will run the trip right out. He's a nice horse with a nice owner .... gee, it would be nice to win a Derby.''
