Danehill Dancer Adds Irish Black-Type
Former shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added an Irish black-type success overnight when 3YO colt Pirateer (Danehill Dancer-Wannabe, by Shirley Heights) returned from a 9-months spell to score a 0.75-length victory against older rivals in the €50,000 (A$69,000) Listed Celebration Stakes (8 furlongs) at The Curragh. Pirateer (ridden by Ryan Moore for trainer Aidan O’Brien) defeated 4YO mare Ezalli (Cape Cross-Ezilla, by Darshaan) & 3yO filly One Spirit (Invincible Spirit-Recite, by Forty Niner). Pirateer now has 3 wins & 2 placings from 6 starts.
