Danasinga Versatility Highlighted
Gr1-winning sire Danasinga (Danehill-Princess Tracy, by Ahonoora) who served his 1st Australian season at Baerami Thoroughbreds in 2005, has had another stellar week with his 3YO runners: gelded son Eskimo Dan (Danasinga-Silver Eskimo) added a metropolitan victory by 2.25-lengths over 1500m at Eagle Farm in Brisbane; fellow gelding Danacolada (Danasinga-Pina Colada) also added a metropolitan victory when scoring by 1650m at Belmont Park in Perth; & filly Sable (Danasinga-Trisha's Belle) won by 2.25-lengths over 2200m Arawa Park in New Zealand. Danasinga's versatility is also emphasised by the fact he is in the Top 10 on the NZ 2YO sire list & also prominent on the Hong Kong sire list. Overall this season Danasinga boasts 7 individual stakes horses (including 2 at Gr1 level). Baerami principal Paul Higgins summed up: "Versatility really is the key to Danasinga. He has a top Gr1 2YO in NZ, an array of exciting 3YOs in Australia & it took the Horse-Of-The-Year to beat 4YO Danacourt at Gr1 level in HK." Meanwhile at the 2006 sales, Danasinga's yearlings sold up to $320,00. Danasinga is again standing at Baerami this season at $16,500.
