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 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 has now won 7 times. He is a horse who we hope should be taking his owners to the winners circle yet again, especially at his beloved Doncaster!!
Syndicate manager update: He is an MPR & stable stalwart, who doesn’t know how to run a bad race. Virtually guaranteed to be a pleasurable ownership experience with this lad!
