Danehill Star Chip Off The Block
At Camden on Sydney's southern outskirts, Tariqa Park's Cathy Cattell is excited about the 2006 season. Tariqa stands Danehill Star (Danehill-Princess Tracy, by Ahonoora) whose 1st crop will officially become 2YOs next week, having sold to $28,000 at this year's Magic Millions sales. A multiple city winner (out of internationally-performed sprinting mare Princess Tracy), Danehill Star is a full-brother to exciting Baerami Thoroughbreds Gr1 winner & successful stallion Danasinga. His full & half-siblings to either win or place in Gr1 events or produce Gr1 winners & place-getters number an astonishing 8 individuals. Standing for just $5,500, Cattell is realistic about the competitive nature of the market & is prepared to "negotiate with breeders" despite the fact Danehill Star's sisters had progeny sell at this year's Inglis Easter Sale for up to $2 million.
