Dar Re Mi (foaled 2005 in Great Britain) is a retired Thoroughbred racehorse. In a racing career lasting from 2007 to 2010 she won six times, including three at Group One level. Since retiring from racing she has become a very successful broodmare.


Dar Re Mi is a daughter of Singspiel out of the mare Darara. Singspiel was a very successful breeding stallion whose other top horses include Hibaayeb and Moon Ballad.[1] During her racing career she was owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and trained by John Gosden.

Racing career[edit]

Dar Re Mi notably ran third in the 2009 Breeders' Cup Turf. She won the Yorkshire Oaks at the Ebor Festival and in August 2009.[2] On 27 March 2010 she earned the most important win of her career in the 2010 Dubai Sheema Classic.[3]

Breeding record[edit]

Dar Re Mi was retired to stud in September 2010 at Watership Down Stud, owned by Madeleine Gurdon, Lady Lloyd Webber.[4] Dar Re Mi's first foal, a colt called De Treville sired by Oasis Dream, won two races and placed four times in group races.[5] Her second foal So Mi Dar, a filly sired by Dubawi, won the Investec Derby Trial and Musidora Stakes in 2016.[6] Her fourth foal, Lah Ti Dar, won the Pretty Polly Stakes in 2018.[7] Later that year her son Too Darn Hot won the Dewhurst Stakes and followed up with wins in the Prix Jean Prat and Sussex Stakes in 2019.
