Star Sprinter Dao Dao Joins Magic Millions National Sale
Stakes-winning & triple Gr1-placed 6YO gelding Dao Dao (Shinko Forest-Casual Way, by Casual Lies) will go under the hammer at the Magic Millions National Racehorse Sale on June 8. Dao Dao currently boasts 7 wins (including 2009's Listed Royal Parma over 1400m at Rosehill) & 8 placings (including April's Gr1 George Ryder Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill, March's Gr2 Blamey Stakes over 1600m at Flemington & both February's Gr1 Futurity Stakes over 1600m at Caulfield & Gr2 Expressway Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, plus 2009's HK Gr1 Champions Mile over 1600m at Sha Tin) from 19 starts for $1.12 million earnings. Magic Millions managing director David Chester enthused: "Dao Dao would be a drawcard at any auction anywhere in the world - he has form around the best horses in the regions he has raced - always racing at the top level. He's the type of horse who would be invited to any of the international races in Dubai, Hong Kong, England & Singapore. He's very lightly raced & is a sound, tough horse & will be sold with a full set of x-rays."
