Dandy Man ex Nuclear Option filly
Purchased at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, this lovely filly is by the very successful multiple Group 1 sire DANDY MAN. His Group 1 winners La Pelosa, Peniaphobia and River Boyne have made his name as the flag bearer for Joe Foley's Ballyhane Stud.
Dandy Man is just a fantastic, speedy sire. He’s has a fabulous year with his 2yo’s, including Richard’s Newbury Super Sprint and Doncaster Sales race winner HAPPY ROMANCE. In fact on the day that we write this, she has just confirmed herself as a quality filly, by winning the Group 3 Shadwell Dick Poole Stakes!
This filly was Ross Doyle’s nap of the Day 2 fillies at Goffs UK (Doncaster) such is her presence and movement, so in keeping with how we’ve previously sourced horses like GREAT PAGE and VIREN’S ARMY, by taking Ross' advice, and buying his nap. She passed the vet and stringent inspections with flying colours - something that is important for us with every yearling we have purchased.
She comes in on Super Sprint qualification money at £35,000 so should receive a handy weight for the race and we will work our way back from there, with this beautiful yearling. Of course, if she’d like to come to hand earlier, as did Happy Romance, and run at Royal Ascot, then we’d, of course, be delighted.
Richard Hannon describes her as “A sweet filly who looks a sharp and racy type for 2021, she’ll fit in really well with the other horses we’ve bought here this week.”
