Lorne Dancer Wins Craven Plate

Tuesday, 7th October 2008

Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added to his progeny's Group record when super-consistent 4YO gelding Lorne Dancer (Danehill Dancer-Fabled, by Seattle Dancer) did enough to hang on for victory in the Gr3 Craven Plate (2000m) at Randwick. Ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Gai Waterhouse, Lorne Dance held off a rattling finish from favoured 4YO mare Riva San (Any Given Sunday-Best River, by Best Western) & 6YO gelding Ice Chariot (Semipalatinsk-Snow Chariot, by Chariot). A $70,000 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Classic Sale, Lorne Dancer now has 6 wins & 4 placings from 12 starts for earnings.
