1st US Winner For Danske

Monday, 10th April 2006

NZ's Emerald Lodge Stud sire Danske (Danehill-Our Tristalight, by Sir Tristram) recorded his 1st US winner when 4YO mare Paparazzi Charm (Danske-Paris Charm) scored over 1600m at Santa Anita. Paparazzi Charm previously raced in NZ (trained at Pukekohe by Shane Collett & Richard Hapeta) & won at Ellerslie in December 2004. Danske has now been represented by 96 individual winners world-wide: including the UK, US, South Africa, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Korea, Australia & NZ. Danske (top-priced yearling at the Karaka Premier Sale in 1996 & a subsequent Gr1 winner) originally stood at Windsor Park Stud; last year he was sent on a lease arrangement to stand at Emerald Lodge & in his first year at the southern Canterbury farm served 90 mares. He has since been purchased by Debbie & Paul Thistoll of Emerald Lodge in partnership with Gail & Peter Whitnall of Auckland. In February, Danske recorded his 1st Gr1 winner as a sire when Snazzy (Danske-Ballini, by Balmerino) took the NZ Gr1 Whakanui Stud Stakes (2000m) at Te Rapa. Danske is currently 9th on the NZ General Sires' premiership.
