Sydney Cup Contender Entered in Chairman's Sale
Sydney Cup-bound galloper Chance To Dance has been entered in Inglis's The Chairman's Sale Session I (Elite Racing Prospects) at Newmarket on Thursday March 30. Nick and Lloyd Williams bought the Irish-bred Chance To Dance (Teofilo-Crystal Ballet, by Royal Academy) to race in Australia just under two years ago. In that time he has finished in the top four at eight of his 14 starts and won more than $200,000. His most recent run was in Monday's Gr2 Adelaide Cup, where he finished fourth. "He's had an extremely consistent campaign this time in,'' Nick Williams said. "He looks extremely well placed in the Sydney Cup, especially when you consider he drops from 58kg in the Adelaide Cup to 51.5kg in the Sydney Cup.'' The Chairman's Sale Session I – Elite Racing Prospects – will be held on Thursday night, March 30 from 5pm, just prior to Day 1 of The Championships. The Chairman's Sale Session II – Elite Breeding Prospects – will take place on Friday night, April 7 from 6pm, the night after the conclusion of the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
