Goffs Day-2: $576,000 Danehill Dancer Filly

Wednesday, 28th September 2005

Among other Day-2 buyers, Tom Taaffe paid €325,000 (A$576,000) for a Danehill Dancer filly (out of Riverman mare Flood). The filly (consigned from Paul Shanahan's Ashtown House Stud) is closely related to Aidan O'Brien's 2002 Gr1 French 2000 Guineas winner Landseer. Taafe "has been busy shopping for a small number of high class fillies" & told racingpost.co.uk: "She is a particularly athletic walker & I thought she was a collector's item. She's from a family that you don't often see in a catalogue."
