29/05/02 Danehill Dancer an International Success Story

0926danehilldancer.jpg (21197 bytes)

Outstanding young sire Danehill Dancer will return to Collingrove Victoria this season at the same time his progeny continue their strong performances on the racetrack.

The well performed son of Danehill's start to his breeding career in Australia has been strong, but it is no real surprise after the feats he achieved in the north.

With his first crop of runners in Europe he was crowned the Leading First Season Sire of Europe in 2001, with some 24 winners, three more than his nearest rival. His first crop in the Northern Hemisphere win 35 races - three at stakes level.

Danehill Dancer has had winners in Australia, Hong Kong, Italy, England, Malaysia, France and Ireland, while his only runner to date in New Zealand is placed from just two starts there.

A dual Group One winner on the track Danehill Dancer won three races at Group level during a short and illustrious career. But there's little doubt he's best known here for his promising offspring.

Already he is the sire of this season's sizzling juvenile star Choisir, who was a placegetter in all three legs of the two-year-old Group One triple crown. Most good judges feel the best of Choisir is still to come!

Danehill Dancer is one of the most popular sires of youngsters in the sunshine state and there's little wonder why. His top class performers in Queensland include the underrated galloper Jar Jar Binks, last Saturday's winner Damigos and the brilliant juvenile Dynamic Dancer.

Brisbane race followers were all raving about Dynamic Dancer in December after he sizzled to an amazing win in the city. He was installed as the Magic Millions Classic favourite but sadly for connections was injured when he finished second at his most recent start. Don't forget this fellow's name when he returns in the spring.

During this year's Yearling Sales series around Australia his youngsters sold for impressive amounts - up to $130,000 in fact.

Danehill Dancer will be standing at Collingrove Victoria near Nagambie for $19,250 (inc GST) with a free return.
