Darcy is extremely well bred. He is the grandson of Alydar. In 1978, Affirmed and Alydar battled head to head in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes. Affirmed claimed the Triple Crown, but Alydar tested him to the limits each time. Alydar was the only horse to finish second in all three races. Darcy is also the great grandson of Secretariat who won the 1973 Belmont Stakes by an astounding 31 lengths to claim the Triple Crown. Darcy's bloodlines include: Raise a Native, Native Dancer, Bold Ruler, Polynesian, Nasrullah, T.V. Lark, Princequillo, Hyperion, Sir Gaylord, Sir Ivor, Never Bend and Round Table.

Darcy is like a large dog. He loves attention and peppermints. He is sweet and kind but has a spark that makes him stand out and be noticed. He is just beginning his training so watch this page for more details soon.
