Bay colt by DANDY MAN ex Colgin (Canford Cliffs)(Trainer: Richard Hannon, Herridge, nr Marlborough)
We were very pleased to secure this powerful, athletic colt by DANDY MAN at Tattersalls. DANDY MAN was the joint top-rated sprinter in England in 2006 and is now a really good stallion. He has produced multiple Group winners including the lightening quick Peniaphobia, who won the Group One Hong Kong Sprint in Sha Tin. Our colt comes from a very fast family and his pedigree is full of Black Type horses. It includes the Group One King’s Stand winner and very successful stallion, Profitable. DAPPER VALLEY is a much bigger and stronger model than his full brother, Northcliff, who has been an above average juvenile this season. Our fellow is an easy-moving horse with an exceptionally good walk and a lovely outlook. His attractive head and strong shoulder instantly struck us. He looks a sharp, early two-year-old. He is going to Classic winning trainer Richard Hannon, who has had great success with this type of horse, notably the prolific winning DANDY MAN filly, Happy Romance.
He is 1 of 3 horses in the Thurloe for Royal Marsden Cancer Charity II Syndicate where 15% of winnings will be going to the Charity.
