Danbird 3YO, Super Swell, is closing in on a win following an unlucky third over 1400m at Cranbourne on Sunday (8 November).
The Robbie Griffiths trained filly was a lip second at his previous outing and is gaining valuable experience with each outing.
Prepared for sale by Eliza Park on behalf of breeder Ariel Arnott, Super Swell is a three quarter sister to Bel Esprit Group winners Bel Mer (this year’s SAJC Robert Sangster-G1) and brilliant Singapore sprinter Mooring.
Performing in much the same fashion as his underrated stablemate, Clangalang, Danbird is working his way into the spotlight with October wins to Takookachook and Hotham Heights (who would subsequently compete at Flemington on Derby day).
As a consequence, now heads up the Australian Second Season Sires’ chart by winners to runners percentage (with 5 or more winners), while his overseas progeny are also making inroads with Winning Dan placed at weight for age in Singapore last Friday.
