June Stakes Win for Danish Twist

Progressive mare Danish Twist kept her current winning streak intact when posting her fourth successive victory at Randwick on Saturday in the Listed ATC June Stakes.

A half-sister by Dane Shadow to triple Group I winner Happy Trails, Danish Twist was bred by Brenton and Liz Parker and retained to race in partnership.

Handled patiently by Kris Lees, she is absolutely flying this campaign and charged home from back in the field to win the 1100 metre sprint running away by two lengths with apprentice rider Koby Jennings on board.

“She did it so easily,” Jennings said.

“When she took the gap with her momentum going, I knew I had the race won before it would have looked like she had it won. She went that quick underneath me. She’s a pleasure to ride her.”

Raised at Mill Park as was her famous older sibling Happy Trails, Danish Twist has the impressive record of eight wins and six placings from 17 starts with prizemoney topping $728,000.

The Group I Tatts Tiara at Eagle Farm in two weeks time is her grand final.

Mill Park sold the current yearling from Madame Flurry, a colt by All Too Hard, for $150,000 to Gary Moore Racing at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.
