Darley Newcomer 3: European Champ Miler Librettist
Librettist (Danzig-Mysterial, by Alleged) is currently standing his initial Northern Hemisphere season for Darley at Dalham Hall Stud at Newmaket in the UK. The 5YO stallion was Europe's highest-rated Gr1 older miler in 2006. Librettist was a high-class Godolphin 2YO, winning 2 of his 3 starts & heading for a Guineas preparation before injury saw him miss his 3YO season. He returned as a 4YO in 2006 with 5 successive front-running victories (including 2 of Europe's most competitive Gr1 1600m races: France's Gr1 Prix Jacques le Marois & Gr1 Prix du Moulin). Librettist (the highest-rated son of Danzig since War Chant in 2000) retired with 7 wins from 10 starts for US$798,975 earnings; he is also a half-brother to fellow Darley stallion Dubai Destination.
