DANON PLATINA BEATS TOP FIELD IS ASAHI FUTURITY STAKES

By | Danon Platina

Race favourite Danon Platina responded well to expectations in capturing this year’s Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes. His three career starts include a runner-up finish in his debut start, followed by a convincing four-length win in a maiden race in October, and another strong three-length victory in the Begonia Sho, an allowance race seven weeks later. 

Since the Victoria Mile triumph with Apapane in 2011, this win marks trainer Sakae Kunieda’s 11th JRA-G1 victory, while jockey Masayoshi Ebina celebrates his 23rd JRA-G1 title after claiming the Hanshin Juvenile Fillies partnered with Shonan Adela, also sired by Deep Impact, just a week ago. Deep Impact offspring has now dominated ten out of 23 JRA-G1 races this year.

DANON PLATINA TO STAND IN SOUTH AFRICA

By | Danon Platina

The superbly bred and well-performed Danon Platina will become the first son of the legendary racehorse and sire, Deep Impact, to take up stud duties in South Africa when he retires to Mauritzfontein for 2019. Danon Platina was Japan’s Champion 2YO Colt of 2014 when the striking grey won three of his four races.

He scored his most notable win at two in the G1 Asahi Futurity Stakes, scoring three parts of a length win over an 18 horse field – with third-place finisher, Clarity Sky, going on to win the G1 NHK Mile Cup the following year.

DANON PLATINA WILL MAKE A DEEP IMPACT

By | Danon Platina | No Comments

The imported grey stallion, Danon Platina (JPN), has moved in at Mauritzfontein alongside the stalwart Ideal World, and I remind myself to note in my review that he’d have to travel a long way to find a nicer, more immaculate place to sprinkle his precious seed.

Danon Platina was purchased off the racetrack in Japan by Mauritzfontein, Wilgerbosdrift, Moutonshoek and Ridgemont Highlands in a deal structured by Jehan Malherbe of Form Bloodstock. He’s a young grey horse, only six years of age.
