Darley freshman Henny Hughes sires first winner

US FIRST-SEASON sire Henny Hughes was represented by his first winner on Wednesday when his son Dalamar broke his maiden over 5f at Delaware Park.

Dalamar, who is owned and bred by Gulf Coast Farms, made almost all therunning to win by two lengths from the With Distinction filly She's Praise, with another filly, Perfect Maria, by Maria's Mon, back in third.

He is the first foal out of the Deputy Minister mare Dutchess Mojo, who is out of a sister to Kentucky Derby hero Fusaichi Pegasus.

Henny Hughes, a son of Hennessy, was near the top of the class at two, finishing second in three Grade 1 races that season - the Hopeful Stakes, the Champagne Stakes and the Breeders' Cup Juvenile.

At three Henny Hughes recorded easy victories in two Grade 1 events, the King's Bishop Stakes and the Vosburgh Stakes.

He stands at Darley's Jonabell Farm in Kentucky, and in 2010 he commanded a stud fee of $25,000.
