A Watership Down Stud homebred, Dar Re Mi is a half sister to Group One QEII Cup winner River Dancer (formerly Diaghilev, by Sadler's Wells), multiple stakes winner Dariyoun (Shahrastani) and Australian Group One winner Darazari (Sadler's Wells). The dam Darara won the Group One Prix Vermeille and is a half sister to champion three-year-old and sire Darshaan. Consigned to the 1994 Tattersalls December Sale by the Aga Khan, she was acquired as a foundation mare by Watership Down Stud for 470,000 gns.

Singspiel also has Group One Dubai Sheema Classic winner Eastern Anthem and Listed winner Tastahil as his stakes-winning representatives in Europe and the UAE this term. Overall, he has 36 winners from 102 runners. His European earnings of £1.4 million in 2008 placed him fifth in our list of leading sires standing at under £20,000.
