An elegant grey, Dark Angel was a top class sprinter in his day. Excelling in a nine race campaign as a two year old. Those nine outings netted one second place and four victories, including in the group two Mill Reef Stakes and the group one Middle Park Stakes.
Retiring after that solitary season as a racer, Dark Angel then reached legendary status as a sire.
It is as a sire, after all, that Dark Angel has come to be described as a ‘proven Group One producer’. No fewer than three winners of racing’s highest rated contests included amongst his progeny.
Both Lethal Force and Harry’s Angel have taken home the prestigious July Cup Stakes at Newmarket, whilst Mecca’s Angel is lauded by many as the fastest filly in Europe thanks to her two Nunthorpe Stakes triumphs.
By a top class sire himself, in Acclamation. Dark Angel stands at the superb Yeomanstown Stud in Ireland. They have a fabulous video of Dark Angel here
Born To Finish has won 4 races for Crowd Racing owners, as well as running placed on another 3 occasions and as he is only a 4yr old there is still plenty more to come.
Born To Finish has been gelded, so he won’t be emulating his as a stallion, sadly.
That’s not the end of the story of success when it comes to Dark Angel’s offspring.
Top class and enduringly popular campaigners such as Sovereign Debt and Gabrial are also counted amongst his progeny.
And in 2017, we have seen seriously good performers such as Harry Angel and Battaash. There is no doubt he produces quality off-spring, who improve with racing and age.
In fact, sons and daughters of Dark Angel have already accounted for total prize money of £7,451,385 as of July 2017. In the current year to date, only legendary stallion Galileo’s offspring can account for a greater return.
The Crowd Racing owners of Born To Finish, therefore, can be safe in the knowledge that the horse’s sire is true racing royalty.
Crowd Racing also owned a son of Dark Angel in Trending, who won 8 races before being retired early 2017.
Trending was an admirable racehorse, who always give his all in every race.
The shares in Born To Finish are now fully sold out. Shares in other horses available and more information can be found by clicking here.
We will buy another Dark Angel in the near future. We have been very lucky with the family so far and look forward to more success in the coming years.

Crowd Racing is one of the UK’s most innovative Racehorse Ownership and Experience companies.
We offer ownership shares in racehorses and racehorse ownership experiences in the UK and Europe, via our "Crowds". By joining a Crowd, you will become a registered owner of that racehorse for a fixed period of time, for a fixed cost. At the end of the period, you will get to vote on whether we keep the horse(s) but will never be committed to remaining as part of that Crowd irrespective of the vote result.
Crowd Racing offers various ownership packages on a transparent, one-off cost basis with no hidden charges.
Depending on the level of package purchased, share owners received a variety of racehorse owner benefits; All owners are entitled to their pro-rata share of prize-money and re-sale of the horse at the end of the defined period.
We also offer a totally free to join Racing Club, The Crowd Racing Club.
Crowd Racing exists to make racehorse ownership accessible, informative, exhilarating, social and above all;
A whole lot of fun!
We have well over 300 owners involved in Crowd Racing, and many of them are involved in multiple horses. Our customers retention levels are above 90%, so we know we are doing a lot right, but we are constantly looking to improve.
We embrace new technology to find better and more innovative ways to communicate and deliver better for our owners, and we thrive on listening to the feedback of those that matter the most;
Our Customers - Our Owners. The Crowd.
While we will always strive to buy racehorses for our owners which will win races and increase in value, the costs involved in training and running a racehorse plus the relatively low levels of prize money in the UK, make showing an upside on the initial investment made by owners very difficult and somewhat rare.
Shares bought in horses via Crowd Racing, should always be viewed as a social investment with no expectation of any financial upside. We can guarantee you will love being involved and have some wonderful experiences but we cannot guarantee you will make money.
