Fantastic Light to Australia
Darley has added Eclipse Award winner Fantastic Light to its galaxy of frequent flyers. The announcement that Rahy's all-time leading money-winner would shuttle after his first northern season at Dalham Hall in England came at the intended southern destination from Darley's Australian manager Oliver Tait. The speed of Fantastic Light carried the horse to 12 wins and six international grade/group I victories from 25 starts, the pinnacle being his triumph in the Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) at Belmont Park. Produced from the Nijinsky II mare Jood, Fantastic Light earned $8,486,957.
