Dalakhani Son Fancied For Danehill Stakes
Cornerstone Stud, in particular, will be watching Saturday's Gr2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) with great interest to see if South Australia's boom sprinter Dalasan (Dalakhani-Khandalla, by Kitten's Joy) can live up the huge hype he is carrying. This year's Gr2 VRC Sires' Produce Stakes runner-up, Dalasan was ultra-impressive when scoring a slashing win in the recent Gr3 Spring Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in Adelaide where he had a length to spare over subsequent Gr1 Memsie Stakes winner Scales of Justice. Yet to finish further back than second, the Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas-trained 3YO meets two very smart Dundeel sophomores in dual Gr1 winner Yourdeel and Super Seth, both of which might be looking for a little further. Dubious, Sebrekate and Express Pass are also in the mix.
