Danehill Dancer Adds Irish Black-Type
Also in Ireland, former shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Look At Me (Danehill Dancer-Queen Cleopatra, by Kingmambo) scored a 1.5-lengths victory against older rivals in the €40,000 (A$55,000) Listed Navigation Stakes (8.5 furlongs) at Cork. Look At Me (ridden by Joseph O’Brien for trainer Aidan O’Brien) defeated 3YO colt Defining Year (Hawk Wing-Tajaathub, by Aljabr) & 4YO entire Stunning View (Shamardal-Sabaah, by Nureyev). Look At Me took her record to 2 wins & 4 placings (in both September’s Gr2 Blandford Stakes over 10 furlongs at The Currage & Gr3 Kilternan Stakes over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown, plus August’s Gr3 Dance Design Stakes over 9 furlongs at The Curragh, as well as 2010’s UK Gr3 Oh So Sharp Stakes over 7 furlongs at Newmarket) from 14 starts for €80,661 (A$111,000) earnings.
