217 stakes winners for Art Major

Dance Till Dawn became the 217th stakes winner for Art Major when proving too good in the Listed Uncut Gems Mares Classic at Addington this past Friday night.

John Dunn drove Dance Till Dawn hard off the gate and she was able to find the front through some quick sectionals.

She dictated the pace and despite the early burn, was able to come home in 57.3 to win over the smart mares Manhattan and Folklore.

Bred by Taffy Ltd, Dance Till Dawn is out of the Bettor’s Delight mare Shimmy Shoes and was a $40,000 yearling purchase by Diamond Racing.

Art Major continues to demonstrate his champion siring ability – he is currently the leading 2YO sire in Australia, the leading 3YO sire in New Zealand and second on the All Age Sires Premiership in both Australia and New Zealand behind Bettor’s Delight.
