All Eyes To Ashwell Farm
7 March 2003
D'Cash has one of the best pedigrees in the Southern Hemisphere. He is a winning son of international sire phenomenon Danehill, who is one of only two stallions in the world to have produced over 200 stakes winners, with a staggering 49 of these Group 1 winners. D'Cash's credentials as a sire son of Danehill are further enhanced by his dam, the brilliant Australian race mare Canny Lass, a winner of three Group 1 races and four times placed at Group 1 level. D'Cash's immediate family also features the Champion Australian 2YO and successful sire Canny Lad, along with the Group 1 Queensland Derby winner Camarena.
D'Cash has eight foals on offer:
LOT 1 x HONITON � This colt is from a winning � sister to the multiple Group 2 winner Chagemar and a sister to the stakes placed Be Reasonable. The triple Group 1 winner Chantal also features in this family.

This young Group 2 and 3 winning stallion is by Champion French sire Riverman from Charming Life, a full sister to Zabeel and a � sister to the Group 1 winner Baryshnikov. His breeding suggests that his offspring will relish stepping up over ground as three year olds, as he himself did. To date, Kingfisher Mill has had just the two race day starters for the one place-getter, Azure.
