Rare Milestone for Exceed And Excel
Darley's world-class Australian-bred shuttler Exceed And Excel recently celebrated a significant milestone with his 250th stakes winner. The brilliant dual Group 1-winning son of Danehill achieved the record when his son Mr Stunning landed the Gr2 Jockey Club Sprint (1200m) at Sha Tin in Hong Kong three weeks ago. Among Exceed And Excel's best progeny to date are 4-time European Gr1 winner Excelebration, 4-time Gr1-winning Australian filly Guelph, Gr1 Caulfield Guineas winner and fellow Darley sire Helmet, Golden Slipper winner Overreach, three-time Gr1-winning sprinter Flamberge, and Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes winners Earthquake and Reward For Effort. Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond), now 17 years of age, stands at Darley's Kelvinside property in NSW at a fee of $110,000 (inc. GST).
