GB Racing is delighted to offer shares in a two-year-old Dandy Man filly, out of a Footstepsinthesand mare.
She is currently in training in Newmarket and making terrific progress in her development as a racehorse. An athletic filly and a great mover, she is currently thriving and should be ready to run as soon as next month.
The dam Curious Lashes was unraced, but of her three foals to have raced so far, two have won. Her 2012 foal Shaakis was sharp enough to score on his second start as a two-year-old, before winning three times in total at up to a mile.
Curious Lashes also boasts a classy pedigree, as a half-sister to the Gr.2 Champagne Stakes winner Close To You, whilst another half-sister gave the Brazilian Grp-1 performer North Sail. The extended family includes lots of Stakes animals and traces back to the outstanding Oaks and Prix Vermeille winner Monade, who was also runner-up in the Arc.
Another positive element of this pedigree is the identity of the sire. Dandy Man won at Grp-3 level and was placed at Grp-1 level during a five season-long racing career and has carved out a fine record as a stallion too, notably with his two-year-olds. His best runner has been the Grp-1 winner Peniaphobia, whilst his other progeny include Royal Ascot winning two-year-old Extortionist, Coventry Stakes runner-up Parbold and Listed Roses Stakes winning youngster Big Time Baby.
With such an explosive pedigree on either side, this attractive filly has all the attributes one might look for in a racy two-year-old
