Danbird is poised to snare a win in Singapore following the performance of Winning Dan in the weight for age Initiation over 1400m at Kranji last night (6 November).
Forced on the pace throughout, the lightly raced 3YO fought on well and was actually making a second run as the post loomed, eventually finishing third.
Bred by the Hong Kong Breeders’ Club, Winning Dan is out of the Zabeel mare, Zealous Star, and was sold as a yearling in New Zealand before heading to the Singapore stable of Chua Choon Bok.
A great grandson of brilliant Kiwi mare, Tudor Light (16 wins), this is the immediate family of dual Oaks winner Our Tristalight, and Danehill’s NZ 2000 Guineas-G1 winner Danske.
