In training


DOB: 23 Feb 2016
Footstepsinthesand x Clodovina (Clodora)
Owner: Mrs S Roy

Dancingwithwolves is by the 2000 Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand, who has proven himself a good sire over a number of years. He is out of the mare Clodovina, who was Listed placed over a mile and has previously produced the Gr.1-placed Canndal. This is the family of Gr.1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains winner and sire Clodovil and the Gr.3 Gordon Richards Stakes winner Colombian.

A February foal, he was a little hot at home, so was gelded prior to his debut at Kempton in October. He was predictably keen in the race, and made the running for much of the contest. He tired a little late on, ultimately finishing fourth, but it was a promising debut. 

He showed the benefit of another year on his back when returning to action at Lingfield as a three-year-old. Much more tractable during the race, he has clearly started to mature and is learning to settle, and in the end ran on for a highly respectable fourth. This horse has done well from two to three phsyically and mentally, so hopefully there are races to be won with him.
