By Horse of the Year and Triple Crown Champion Seattle Slew, Doneraile Court, like his sire, proved a precocious campaigner on the racetrack. An excellent miler, Doneraile Court won the Nashua Stakes (G3) at age two, defeating Successful Appeal and captured the Jerome Stakes (G2) the following season at age three, defeating Vicar and Badger Gold while traveling the one-mile distance in 1:35.63. Doneraile Court was also multiple stakes-placed, having finished second in the Dwyer Stakes (G2), the Holy Bull Stakes (G3) and third in the Tampa Bay Derby.
Produced from a female family rich in black-type, Doneraile Court is out of the Grade 1 stakes-placed Stop the Music mare Sophisticated Girl, from the family of Del Mar Futurity (G2) winner Souvenir Copy.
Doneraile Court has sired Cocoa Beach (CHI), an earner of more than $1.7 million and Horse of the Year in Chile, Ariege ($537,485), Noble Court ($431,778) and Ruler’s Court ($235,900). This season Doneraile Court is represented by Scherer Magic, winner of the Hollywood Juvenile Championship (G3) at Betfair Hollywood Park and third in the Del Mar Futurity (G1).
As a stallion, Doneraile Court has sired 28 stakes winners, including two champions—Cocoa Beach (CHI) and Belmont Place—and 2012 juvenile stakes winner Scherer Magic, winner of the Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes (G3).
