On the night before the crowds gathered at Haras de Bonneval to see him and his stable companions, Dariyan’s first foal was born. Masaola, a sister to two Stakes performers owned by Mr and Mrs Renk, gave birth to a bay colt at Haras de Saint Crespin. The manager of the Aga Khan Studs in France, Georges Rimaud said of him: “He is a nice strong foal, he weighs 61 kilos and is well developed, we’re very happy with him.”
Dariyan is a Group 1 winner with a remarkable pedigree, being a son of Shamardal out of Group 1 winner Daryakana. His grandam Daryaba won the Prix de Diane and Prix Vermeille and he hails from the family of Darjina and Almanzor. Dariyan stands for €8,000 at Haras de Bonneval alongside Siyouni, Zarak and Charm Spirit.
