Winx may not have been the star attraction at this year’s Turnbull Stakes, but Rich Itch certainly brought excitement to Flemington for Rangal Park Stud. Rich Itch is out of the speedy Danerich who is standing at Rangal Park Stud this season.
‘Rich Itch has won over 1200m prior to the Turnbull Stakes Day and the trainer was extremely confident he was going to win. He has been saying for some time that he is black type horse and he proved that at Flemington.’ We wait in anticipation to see what the next target for this impressive horse.
‘Danerich is probably one of the most underestimated stallions in Australia. He has had winners from 900m to 3200m both fillies and colts. He is a good bread and butter stallion’ Remarked Eric Buttler from Rangal Park. Danerich is a very fertile stallion and combined with the impressive results on the track, is very attractive for breeders. Danerich produces progressive horses as many are not seen on the track before their three-year old year however, they are bred very tough and continue racing for many years. A statistic of 64% winners to runners is not one to ignore and one that many stallions will never reach. Danerich’s popularity in Victoria has been on an upward scale and I imagine it will be a matter of time for this to spread to the rest of Australia.
Rich Itch is not the only exciting Danerich bred horse that is winning on the track. Flow Meter has been consistently winning in South Australia. ‘Flow Meter has proved himself as an iron horse at ten years of age, 118 starts and total prizemoney of $526,660. He backs up week after week at Morphettville as is always in the money.’ There is no stopping this gelding who is a multiple stakes winner over 1200m to 2500m. This horse is another example of the varied distance Danerich progeny perform over.
Alongside Danerich standing at Rangal Park Stud is Boomtime, the Group 1 and multiple placed Stakes winner. ‘Boomtime has a sprinters pedigree but has been a Group 1 winner over 2500m.’ with the attractive pursuit to breed speed to him after all Boom Tim is by Flying Spur and a Snippets Mare.
From a popular family, Boomtime’s pedigree is linked to the famous Australian Icon, Black Caviar, All Too Hard, and closely related to Magnus. ‘His first two mares are in foal which is very pleasing.’ Although Rangal Park are still waiting on many of the results for Boomtime, it has been a very positive start to the season for Boomtime.
Rangal Park is set in attractive surrounds ‘we have beautiful soil and it is a matter of the weather warming up. We haven’t had to be in situation where we need to manipulate the mares. We have a variety of sizes of paddocks, so it is easy to put your mares in foals and have nice paddocks for them to mature.’ The North-East of Victoria where Rangal Park is located is an ideal climate for breeding and has produced an array of champion stallions.
