Fantastic Blue Wins Premier's Cup

Monday, 28th May 2012

Former Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a black-type success (& 136th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when 5YO gelding Fantastic Blue (Danehill Dancer-Chandrika, by Kenmare) scored by a short-head in the $125,000 Gr3 Premier's Cup (2200m) at Doomben. Fantastic Blue (ridden by Timothy Bell for trainer Paul Nolan) defeated 5YO mare Dance With Her (Al Maher-Dance Hit, by Tights) & top-weighted 6YO gelding Ironstein (Zabeel-Gentle Genius, by Danehill). Fantastic Blue (a $55,000 yearling consigned by Baramul Stud at the 2008 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 11 wins & 4 placings from 45 starts for $385,950 earnings.
