Daifuku to Debut at Counties

The latest member of the “Cake” family to be presented to the races by Ballymore Stables is set to debut at Counties today (Wednesday).

Daifuku, who is named after the Japanese Rice Cake, is in Race 1 at 1.10pm, an 800m contest for 2YO’s.

The delightful daughter of Mr Nancho and the stakes-placed mare Take the Cake has shown plenty of galloping prowess on the training track, so much so that Chad has elected to bypass the trials and send her directly to the races.

Daifuku has had two jump-outs at Matamata and has done everything right in both of them” said Chad.

“She is a really exciting filly and is ready to go straight to the races and be competitive on debut” he added.

Daifuku who is owned by long-time Ballymore clients Ian and Chris McCarrison, is a granddaughter of the multiple black-type performer Good Cake, a half-sister to the Champion Stayer Cut The Cake who carried the Ballymore Stable colours to victory in the 2003 Gr.1 New Zealand Derby.

Like Cut the Cake, she was bred by Paul Moroney and we are all hoping she can keep the winning tradition going for the “Cake” family and Ballymore Stables.
