Dartyn Kriss SWA Cashes in Again in Delaware HARC Race

Dartyn Kriss SWA Cashes in Again in Delaware HARC Race
Solvang, CA | USA – The second Arabian race in 2017 to offer the Heritage Arabian Racing Club (HARC) added money took place this past Saturday, October 7th at Delaware Park. The $4,000 is divided to the owner and breeder of the top three HARC-nominated horses in the race.  
 
The bonus was attached to the final race on the Saturday card at Delaware Park, an allowance optional claiming race at a distance of 6 furlongs for purebred Arabian fillies and mares 3 years and up which have never won two or more races. The race itself carried a purse of $12,500, in addition to the $4,000 HARC bonus for HARC-eligible runners in the race.  
 
In this case, just one HARC-nominated horse was entered in the race. However, it made a big statement, one that created buzz and enticement. Dartyns Kriss SWA (KD Kalhoun x Triss), an eight-year-old pure Polish mare owned and bred by Dr. Jim Wetzel of Casper, WY went fourth in the race. Yet still, Dr. Wetzel took home a check for $4,000 – the full HARC payout as the only HARC-nominated horse, and also both the owner and breeder.   
It remains a scintillating message to the USA Arabian horse world: Get your HARC-eligible horses nominated and racing.  
 
Ken Danyluk, prominent Arabian race trainer and trainer of Dartyn Kriss SWA is a significant proponent of HARC. “I started my career with horses of the classic HARC bloodlines and had a lot of success with them,” he said. “Even though other bloodlines have become more popular, I’m happy that I have a HARC horse in my barn, thanks to Dr. Wetzel. There are still track records on the books that were set by HARC horses. Dartyn Kriss SWA is tough, quick out of the gate, and I look forward to running her again in upcoming HARC races.”  
 
Dartyn Kriss SWA won the HARC races in Colorado, Texas and California last year, and is the leading HARC earner in the USA with $13,520 in HARC lifetime earnings.  
 
One last HARC race for the year will be offered in Texas this November.
