Dalasan Settling in at Victoria’s Riverbank Farm


Riverbank Farm’s Russell Osborne and Dr Caroline Duddy are pleased with the industry’s response to their new stallion group winner Dalasan (Dalakhani-Khandallah, by Kitten’s Joy). “There has been lots of interest already and the bookings are steadily coming in,” Osborne said. “He has settled in really well and he is a beautiful horse with a great temperament.” With tough racehorses like Spirit of Boom and Rebel Dane doing so well at stud lately, there is certainly a market for a horse like Dalasan who won eight of his 41 starts and was Group 1 placed on multiple occasions with earnings over $3.5n million. Dalasan’s dam was a stakes-placed winner and she’s been in the news recently with Dalasan’s 3YO half-sister Party Princess (So You Think) winning the 2023 Listed Adelaide Guineas and placing in the Gr3 RA Lee Stakes at her most recent start. “She had a bit of class on them,” said her co-trainer Andrew Gluyas after Party Princess’ guineas win. From the same damline that produced exceptional stallion Street Cry, Dalasan’s grandam left group winner of 19 races Galic Boy, while stakes-winners of multiple races are common in this family. Dalasan’s sire Dalakhani (Darshaan-Daltawa, by Miswaki) is the sire of 55 stakes winners including good sire and Group 1 winner Reliable Man whose 21 stakes winners including Inspirational Girl, Miami Bound, Miss Sentimental, and exciting 3YO Renaissance Woman.
