First Foals for Dandino

Wednesday, 30th August 2017

The arrival of the first foals of Dandino in the 2017 season has created excitement at Bombora Downs in Bittern, Victoria. Bombora Downs stud principal Christoph Bruechert breathed a sigh of relief after the safe arrival of the first of Dandino’s foals. “So far we have two foals by Dandino on the farm and if he is starting as he means to go on, then Dandino will exert great influence on his progeny. Both foals have a lot of their father about them and the colt from O’Marie is just a little version of his dad which can only be a good thing.” Dandino is a son of top-class European sire Dansili (Danehill) who, from 14 crops of racing age, has supplied 185 stakes performers with 71 Stakes winners. Dandino (Dansili-Generous Diana, by Generous) 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 will stand the 2017 breeding season at a fee of $5,500 (inc. GST).
