Fast Colt Already with Asmussen

Daredevil Colt

    • Precocious Colt on Fast Track to the Races for Steve Asmussen

    • Shipped Straight to Keeneland Barn That Last Year House Champion Echo Zulu

    • Daredevil Sired Kentucky Oaks, Preakness Winners in His First Crop

“Fast” and “early,” those two words have dominated the conversation about this son of Daredevil, who will head straight to the racetrack with trainer Steve Asmussen and prepare to debut in short order. He shipped directly to the Asmussen barn at Keeneland that last year at this time was the home of eventual champion 2-year-old filly and now undefeated Kentucky Oaks contender Echo Zulu.

The colt was green as he broke off for his breeze at the OBS training preview but that only underscored how well the rest of the drill went, as he covered an eighth of a mile in 10 flat.

“He started off kind of erratic but once he settled in, it was very nice, and I like that angle, it’s a sneaky good work,” David Ingordo said. “He’s fast and has a lot of spunk. The type you need in the barn if you want to win summer two-year-old stakes.”

Daredevil sneaked up on a lot of people a couple of years back when his first crop featured the Kentucky Oaks (G1) winner Shedaresthedevil as well as champion Swiss Skydiver, who beat males in the 2020 Preakness Stakes (G1). At that time, Daredevil was standing in Turkey, but Lane’s End stepped up to bring him back to Kentucky and install him on what is, year in and year out, one of the leading stallion rosters in the world.

As a racehorse, Daredevil was plenty fast as a 2-year-old, winning his debut at 2 and following right up with a Grade 1 victory in the Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park. He is a son of More Than Ready, a long-time top sire of 2-year-olds, both on turf and dirt.

Both West Point and Steve Asmussen have found diamonds in the rough from the Randy Miles consignment. Multiple stakes winner Seven Trumpets (WPT) and graded stakes winner Snapper Sinclair (Asmussen) hailed from the OBS April Sale.

Price includes all acquisition costs and all training, veterinary, and insurance expenses until January 1, 2023.
