Daredevil and Super Saver have been acquired by the Turkish Jockey Club and are relocating to Turkey, pending export requirements, WinStar Farm announced.

In the agreement, there is a provision allowing for a return to the U.S. upon completion of their stud careers.

“The Turkish Jockey Club has done extremely well with Victory Gallop, who is the leading sire in Turkey, and has made a concerted effort to improve their stallion roster this year through the purchase of Bodemeister, Trappe Shot, Super Saver, and Daredevil, among others,” said Elliott Walden, president, CEO, and racing manager of WinStar Farm. “We look forward to following their careers in Turkey.”

Daredevil, a son of More Than Ready—Chasethewildwind, by Forty Niner, won the 2014 Grade 1 Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park following a romping maiden special weight victory in his career debut.

Super Saver, a 12-year-old by Maria's Mon out of the A.P. Indy mare Supercharger, captured the 2010 Kentucky Derby and won the G2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes the previous year at two, banking more than $1.8 million in his racing career.
