Perfect Fertility Rate For Dandino
With just on a month of the stud season behind us, stud masters standing freshman stallions have had the last fortnight to get some sort of assessment of their new horse's fertility. There is always a little bit of apprehension leading up to the first pregnancy tests and particularly when the horse in question has a good number of early bookings. And so it is with great satisfaction that Bombora Downs can announce that new stallion Dandino (Dansili-Generous Diana, by Generous) has tested six from six at this stage. "It's hard not to get carried away but he's clearly a very fertile horse and that makes our job that much easier" said Bombora Downs stud principal Christoph Bruechert. "Standing a word class performer like Dandino is a privilege but it comes with some pressures as well. Thus far Dandino is proving to be every bit as professional in his stud duties as he was as a racehorse on the world stage." Dandino proved himself as one of the best 2400m horses of his time travelling to five different countries and running to an international rating of 115. His best performances included wins in the time-honoured Gr2 Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket and the Gr3 September Stakes at Kempton, as well as two Gr1 placings, including an amazing second in the Caulfield Cup. Dandino is standing his debut season at a fee of $5000 + GST.
