Danehill Dancer Adds Irish Black-Type

Monday, 11th July 2011

In Ireland overnight, former shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a black-type success when UK-bred 3YO filly Rose Bonheur (Danehill Dancer-Red Feather, by Marju) scored a half-length victory against older rivals in the €40,000 (A$54,000) Listed Belgrave Stakes (6 furlongs) at Fairyhouse. Rose Bonheur (ridden by Declan McDonogh for trainer Kevin Prendergast) defeated fellow 3YO filly Katla (Majestic Missile-Bratislava, by Dr Fong) & 4YO entire Rock Jock (Rock Of Gibraltar-Perfect Touch, by Miswaki). Rose Bonheur now has 4 wins (also including June’s Listed Owenstown Stud Stakes over 7 furlongs at Naas) & 4 placings (including June’s Gr3 Brownstown Stakes over 7 furlongs at Fairyhouse) from 9 starts.
