Danehill Dancer Adds Irish Gr3

Tuesday, 8th May 2012

Also in Ireland overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a group success (& 134th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when 7YO entire Windsor Palace (Danehill Dancer-Simaat, by Mr Prospector) score a 1-length victory in the €72,500 (A$90,000) Gr3 Mooresbridge Stakes (10 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at The Curragh. Windsor Palace (ridden by Colm O'Donoghue for trainer Aidan O'Brien) defeated favoured stable-mate 5YO entire St Nicholas Abbey (Montjeu-Leaping Water, by Sure Blade) & 3YO entire Sharestan (Shamardal-Sharesha, by Ashkalani). Windsor Palace took his record to 2 wins & 3 placings (in April's Gr3 Gladness Stakes over 7 furlongs at the Curragh, plus both 2009's Listed Trigo Stakes over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown & Listed Ruby Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Killarney) from 22 starts.
