DANISH EXPRESS stands approximately 15.3hh and is a good strong type. Evidence of this is the fact she was a $100,000 purchase by renowned judge Tony McEvoy (equal third highest priced DUPORTH filly – 28 offered) at the 2014 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
By Group 1 winning stallion DUPORTH (by RED RANSOM), sire of HEY DOC (Currently Timeform’s equal highest rated 4yo in Australia). In the 2016/2017 season DUPORTH finished in the top 12 active Australian Sires, finishing ahead of the likes of REDOUTE’S CHOICE, STAR WITNESS, COMMANDS, HINCHINBROOK, MEDAGLIA D’ORO, etc, etc. DUPORTH did this with FEWER STARTERS than all of the aforementioned stallions.
DANISH EXPRESS’S dam DANISH MAGIC was a very good 2yo, winning 2 races at this age and prizemoney in excess of $600,000. She is by the high-class sire DANEWIN, making her a sister to the stakes winner of over $750,000 HADAAF.
Importantly DANISH EXPRESS’S first four dams were all Metropolitan or Stakes Winning 2yos, her grand dam BELLE DESIRE being by Champion Sire KENMARE, her third dam PURPOSE by the all-conquering VAIN and her fourth dam LORNE by the very successful MINOR PORTION.
Recent Group Winners to herald from DANISH EXPRESS’s female line include RISQUE (NZ 1000 Guineas – Group 1) and top-class HK Sprinter AMAZING KIDS (dual HK Group 3 winner – over AUD2.5 million earnings).
DANISH EXPRESS sells in foal, ON A VERY EARLY COVER, to hot young stallion NICCONI, a sire now firmly entrenched in the top 20 on the Australian Sires List. NICCONI stood for $16,500 in 2017 and it will be no surprise if next season’s stud fee rises to $22,000 and beyond when Widden Stud announce their fees. At this year’s yearling sales, NICCONI had six yearlings sell for $100,000 and above, at an average price of $55,000. The asking price on DANISH EXPRESS is only half NICCONI’S 2017 yearling average.
Here’s a nice opportunity for someone to pick up a young good looking, well related mare carrying to a commercial stallion whose star is on the rise – and for possibly not much more than his 2018 fee could end up being.
