Danehill Hits 100 SWs As Broodmare Sire
Ill-fated former Coolmore shuttler & multiple champion sire Danehill (Danzig-Razyana, by His Majesty) broke another record when US-bred juvenile colt Intense Focus (Giant's Causeway-Daneleta, by Danehill) won the recent UK Darley Dewhurst Stakes (7 furlongs) at Newmarket. Intense Focus became Danehill's 100th stakes-winner as a broodmare sire. Danehill (born in 1986) did not appear as the broodmare sire of a winner until 1998 & within 10 years, he is the youngest broodmare sire to get to the 100 stakes-winners. With Mr Prospector holding the current record of 349 stakes-winners as a broodmare sire, "it would be a brave man to suggest Danehill won't run down his record within the next 10 years with his daughters at stud throughout the world" commented Irish Thoroughbred Marketing.
