Park Hill Dancer
Here we have, as exciting an individual as we’re able to afford here at Middleham Park Racing. Jonbon was always destined to be a superstar, given his price tag of £570,000 following his debut P2P victory last year, but Nicky Henderson has also been able to purchase superstars on budgets just one notch down from Jonbon’s; notably Shishkin for £170,000 and Constitution Hill for £120,000, following their debut wins.
PARK HILL DANCER was a winner on debut of a P2P bumper, in December 2021, over 2 miles, beating a Trevor Hemmings horse impressively, into second, which was backed off the boards on the day, as if defeat was out of the question. The pair pulled well clear of the 3rd in the straight and very Interestingly, his division of the bumper was run in a time 7 seconds quicker than the second division. We’re hoping that this 5yo gelding, can develop into our next Marie’s Rock (now a dual Grade 1 winner), or just possibly a Shishkin or a Constitution Hill!
Watch his P2P race win here:
Outstanding Pedigree - By the up and coming, German Derby winner Waldpark, whose oldest progeny are now 5yo, he a half-brother to the Grade 2 winner SONG FOR SOMEONE (check out his exciting pedigree attached to this page), so his profile looks immaculate. Just short of 16.2hh he looks destined, hopefully, for a stellar career under the second to none tutelage of the master of Seven Barrows, Nicky Henderson OBE.
Here he is trotting:
So, with a purchase valuation of £150,000, an impeccable race record and a top-notch pedigree, the sky could easily be the limit……Cheltenham or Aintree, here we come?

Hurdles and fences are his real future, but the speed he showed in winning his P2P bumper and his rules debut demonstrates his high level of ability.
Training Update: Impressive, wide margin WINNER on rules debut (see the replay above), he has gone into many notebooks! He goes away for the summer now and will come back in the Autumn, over hurdles, and you’d love to be dreaming of Cheltenham, in the Spring.
