ABOUT DELAGO DELUXE
Rarely a week goes by without a winner for Delago Deluxe, the son of Encosta de Lago (two times Champion Sire of 115 stakes winners) in the first 18 weeks of 2019 alone represented by the winners of 25 races.
Amongst his recent successes - the stakes placed Casa de Lago, Warracknabeal Cup winner Revlis, lightly raced runaway Ascot winner Velago, the talented three-year-olds Diver, Dram Of Delago and Total Excess and the exciting two-year-olds Miss Geneva, Hankstar and Sukwhinder.
A $550,000 Magic Millions graduate, Delago Deluxe won his first four starts in South Africa, rising in class from a maiden to the Gr.3 Protea Stakes to the Gr.2 SA Nursery to the Gr.1 Medallion.
Only once unplaced in 13 starts, he added the Gr.1 Mercury Sprint to his resume and was also twice runner up at the elite level.
Bred on a 3 X 3 cross of Rolls, Delago Deluxe is out of a city winning daughter of the wonderful mare Staging, multiple Group winning dam of Duporth, Excites and Tickets; all of whom have sired Group winners.
He will be standing at his new home, Iron Creek, Stanthorpe, Qld 4380. Please inquire about his 2021 service fee. Contact Ian 0456401894.
