Danehill Blood in 14 Of 15 Slipper Runners
If there was "any doubt relating to the extraordinary influence super sire Danehill has had on Australian racing & breeding, then surely Saturday's $3.5 million Golden Slipper puts it to rest forever," declared columnist John Holloway in The Sydney Morning Herald. Danehill's "impact on this weekend's Golden Slipper is quite amazing, with his bloodlines figuring in 14 of the 15 final acceptors". The only 2YO without a trace of Danehill blood is John Singleton's filly More Strawberries (More Than Ready-Milva, by Strawberry Road).
