Drakenstein Stud’s blue blooded and G1 winning young sire Kingsbarns received yet another handsome update to his impressive pedigree when Madam Dancealot (by Sir Prancealot) landed Thursday’s G3 Bathwick Tyres Dick Poole Stakes at Salisbury.
A first group winner for her sire, Madam Dancealot picked up the second win of her career when running out a clear cut one and a quarter length winner of the 1200m event, and this promising looking two-year-old filly is yet another member of a powerful family to have won a group race.
Madam Dancealot, who also provided trainer Joe Truite with his first Group race success, is out of the Danehill mare Sisal –whose third dam, House Tie, is also third dam of G1 Racing Post Trophy winner Kingsbarns (by Galileo).
The pair are both descendants of former Champion 2YO Filly Mesopotamia –who is also fourth dam of five time G1 winner and European Champion Halling –sire of last year’s G1 Irish Derby winner Jack Hobbs among others.
Other major group winners found in this powerful family include G1 QE II Cup hero Danish, former G1 Investec Derby winner Libertarian (who is by Galileo’s son New Approach), G1 Japan Cup star Alkaased and the Group 1 winning sprinter Cherokee Rose.
Kingsbarns, the only G1 winning son of the world’s best sire currently at stud in South Africa, stands for a fee of R15 000.
