Winbak Farm is sad to announce the passing of CR Daniella, p, 2, 1:53.3; 3, 1:52.1; 1:52 ($638,851). CR Daniella was euthanized on August 24 due to complications of her age.


The 22-time Winner was accomplished as both a racehorse and a broodmare. She was the 1994 USHWA Dan Patch Award Winner for 2-Year-Old Pacing Fillies. At 2, CR Daniella won the Lou Babic Memorial elimination and Final, Molly Pitcher Stakes, New Jersey Futurity division, 4 New Jersey Sires Stakes divisions and 2 Finals, and a Sweetheart Pace elimination. She was second in New Jersey Fair Stakes and Sweetheart Pace Final. At 3, CR Daniella won a John Simpson Sr Stakes division, 2 New Jersey Sire Stakes divisions and Final. At 4, she won the Cape & Cutter Series leg and was second in Overbid Series leg and Rancocas Series leg.


“CR Daniella had been owned by Winbak Farm since 2004,” said Jack Burke, General Manager. “She was an outstanding broodmare who was a 100 percent producer of winners.”


From 12 foals, CR Daniella produced 12 winners (6 in 1:53) including:

  • 49x and NYSS Winner, Mixed Media, p, 2, 1:56.3h; 1:52.4f ($322,675)
  • 37x Winner, CR Fixed Asset, p, 2, 1:55.4; 3, 1:54; 1:51.1f ($300,530)
  • 30x Winner, CR Gunsmoke, p, 3, 1:54.1f; 1:52.3f ($178,622)
  • 34x Winner, HS Cochise, p, 2, 1:58f; 3, 1:57f; 1:53.4f ($168,156)
  • Kate’s Joy, p, 2, 1:56.3f; 3, 1:53.3f; 1:52.3f ($155,196)
  • CR Cowboy Jake, p, 2, Q1:56.4; 3, 1:53.1s; 1:52.4h ($106,767)


“CR Daniella’s pedigree has continued in the Winbak Farm broodmare band with her daughter Kate’s Joy,” said Jack Burke, General Manager. “CR Daniella lived to the golden age of 30.  Winbak Farm is committed to its band of retired mares, and she is just one example of many who have been able to enjoy retirement while still receiving the best of care from our team.”


CR Daniella most recently made headlines for being the “adoptive” mother to Courtly Choice, who as an orphan after his dam, Lady Ashlee Ann, succumbed to complications from foaling.


“CR Daniella will be greatly missed. She was a great racehorse who was also a great mother,” said Burke. “We would like to extend our condolences to the Allen family because CR Daniella was a very special horse to them as well.”
