At Sha Tin racecourse in Hong Kong, The Oaks Stud's 5-time Gr1-winning & 5-time Gr1-placed stallion Darci Brahma (Danehill-Grand Echezeaux, by Zabeel) celebrated an elite race success when 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding D B Pin (Darci Brahma-Pins 'n' Needles, by Pins) unleashed a withering late burst to land the biggest prize of his career in the HK$10 million Gr1 Centenary Sprint Cup (1200m), defeating Mr Stunning & Beat The Clock. Purchased for $200,000 by esteemed bloodstock agent John Foote at the 2014 NZB Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of The Oaks Stud, D B Pin improved his record to 6 wins and 7 placings (including the Gr1 Hong Kong Sprint) from 14 starts for HK$16,603,700 in earnings. He is a half-brother to the dam of Karaka Million winner Avantage.
