OVERSEAS INFO:

Previously raced as TEMPERANCE SOCIETY while conditioned by Richard Fahey, DUTCH WINDMILL, started just once officially in Great Britain, and finished second, five (5) lengths behind the winner in that outing, a 1203-meter dash for Class 5 (BHA Scale) maidens on September 18, 2014, with a purse of £4,920.

COMMENTS AND PROSPECT:

DUTCH WINDMILL is sired by DARK ANGEL, a Middle Park Stakes (ENG-GI) winner as a juvenile with four (4) career victories in total. As a stallion, DARK ANGEL likewise throws speedsters by the bulk, most notably LETHAL FORCE, his first-crop poster boy who, after successive victories in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (ENG-GI) at Royal Ascot and the July Cup (ENG-GI) at Newmarket Heath in 2013, was purchased as a stallion prospect by the Coolmore operations, and is now retired to stand at stud.

In distance, as DARK ANGEL typically trumps on speed, DUTCH WINDMILL, also bred for speed from underneath, should be a genuine sprinter.

In course preferences, coming from strong all-weather influences of ACCLAMATION and MACHIAVELLIAN, DUTCH WINDMILL should also handle dirt.

In general outlook, with a second-place effort - five (5) lengths behind the race winner however - in only a non-descript contest in overseas, DUTCH WINDMILL has yet to impress through his barrier trials in Hong Kong; therefore, his prospect is just initially positive.
