OVERSEAS INFO:

Through a pair of barrier trials while trained by Alex Oliviera, DEAL MAKER, through a pair of barrier trials in New Zealand,

  • Ran fourth (4) in an 850-meter session on October 20, 2016; and
  • Ran third (3) in a 1000-meter session on April 11, 2017.
  • COMMENTS AND PROSPECT:

    DEAL MAKER is sired by DARCI BRAHMA, a brilliant ten-time (10) winner at a mile or under back in his racing days, including a quintet of Group I scores. Accepting his first book of mares in 2007, DARCI BRAHMA, not strictly a high-production sire, has only 500 runners showcased in all jurisdictions to date, averaging a mere north of forty (40) first-timers per year. That being said, his sons and daughters are remarkably consistent, where 350, or precisely 70% of the total, have graced the winnerˇ¦s circle, in particular an octet of Group I graduates ˇV and not necessarily restricted at sprints, with GUST OF WIND, the 2015 Australian Oaks (AUS-GI) victress, being a strong instance.

    In distance, innately stamped of DARCI BRAHMAˇ¦s speed, DEAL MAKER, ingrained of some legit stamina from underneath should stretch out at up to 1800 meters off a sound foundation at sprints.

    In course preference, with an inherent penchant for firm goings from up top, DEAL MAKER is furthermore a maternal grandson of the deceased FOREST WILDCAT, the stallion that, on top of fathering Mile Championship (JPN-GI) victor and HKIR alumni A SHIN FORWARD, now perpetrates his legacy as a genuine all-weather sire of sires through two additional direct lines of his ˇV Dˇ¦WILDCAT and WILDCAT HEIR, who in turn have sired key Grade I / II graduates Dˇ¦FUNNYBONE, WILDCAT RED and HEIR KITTY in the U.S.. In all, this new import should also be talented on dirt.

    In general outlook, with typical speed and versatility by DARCI BRAHMA that fits Hong Kong, DEAL MAKER, quite a looker through the barrier trials in Hong Kong, should be a decent cut-back prospect to get the job done in Class 3.
