Dark Angel off the mark at Kempton Park

SNOWED IN became the first winner by first-season sire
Dark Angel on Tuesday when landing the William Hill, Home Of Betting Maiden Auction Stakes at Kempton Park.

The Stan Moore-trained gelding was fifth at the track on his debut last month, and just denied Three Valleys a first winner, as his son That's Dangerous was second.

Snowed In was bought from the Goffs Premier foal sale for €12,000 but was unsold when reoffered as a yearling at the DBS Premier yearling sale. He is the firstfoal of Spinning Gold, by Spinning World, herself a half-sister to Listed-winning juvenile sprinter Strange Destiny.

Dark Angel, who stands at Morristown Lattin Stud at a fee of €7,000, almost got off the mark with his first runner, Tough As Nails, at the Curragh on March 20. He passed the post first but was demoted to second due to causing interference.
