In 2015, Danehill Dancer was represented with two champion fillies, the first one being Classic and multiple Gr.1 winner Legatissimo, who is out of a Montjeu mare, highlighting the very successful cross between the Danehill and Sadler’s Wells lines.
The second was dual Gr.1 winner Esotérique, who is out of a Dancing Brave mare, descending from the Lyphard / Northern Dancer line.
The proven cross of Danehill Dancer with the Nijinsky line has already provided two Gr.1 winners: Speciosa (Sky Classic) and Again (Kahyasi). Lillie Langtry, winner of the Coronation Stakes, has Shadeed, a son of Nijinsky, as her second dam’s sire.
Danehill Dancer, and the Danzig line in general, are proven crosses with mares from the Mr Prospector line. Two Gr.1 winners, Mastercraftsman and Alexander Tango, have been produced from this cross.
Giant’s Causeway, Planteur’s damsire, is himself an excellent match with this line as eleven of his twenty-one Gr.1 winners born in the Northern Hemisphere are bred out of mares by Mr Prospector line stallions.
