When you have the best trainer in the world of Dandy Man progeny, there seems no reason not to send him sons or daughters of the sire! For instance, in recent seasons since the sire has been having runners, Richard has trained both Parbold and Peniaphobia and he can’t get enough of Dandy Man progeny, they are a type of horse who just thrives on Richard’s training methods. Not only does his sire Dandy Man bring speed and class to the pedigree but the dam Rockaby Baby has already produced one winner from one runner.
Figuring out this lad’s trip at 2 had been a bit of a headscratcher; one day he suggested a mile, the next he looked like 5 furlongs! So when we started him up again in February over 6 furlongs, we were thrilled when he came out and won at Wolverhampton, after a near 6 month break! He has shown glimpses of wonderful ability actually in all his races and he is a horse who we hope should be taking his owners to the winners circle yet again in 2017!
