Medicean - Dance To The Top

Finance journalist Felicity Duncan commented on the recent economic downturn that “the last few days have been many things; boring was not one of them”. Stock markets plunged and many allowed emotions to overwhelm a sense of reasoning as the market encountered a crises in confidence; on Tuesday the market started a comeback, finishing slightly up.

For us, “it’s all about timing”, we witnessed a comeback as early as Monday night with the arrival of the aptly named BANKABLE (Medicean x Dance To The Top by Sadler’s Wells), who’s racing accomplishments accounted for 8 wins, including 4 at Group and Stakes level.

“Now is not the time to be caught napping”, Summerhill’s Stallion Manager, Greig Muir commented. “We’ve reason to be excited. BANKABLE boasted a Timeform Rating of 122 and is perhaps one of the best looking horses to come through the Summerhill gates in the last decade. He descends from a great sire line and is out of a mare by one of the world’s all time greatest broodmare sires, Sadler’s Wells. He’s perfect”.

This was confirmed by trainer Herman Brown Jnr who, when reunited with the BANKABLE on Wednesday, said “for me, there was very little between BANKABLE and JAY PEG. BANKABLE had the perfect temperament and was confirmationally faultless which gave him the ability to perform over a broader distance with tremendous ability”.

BANKABLE earned over R20 million in stakes over distances from 1200-1800m and ran World Champion Raven’s Pass to one length whilst giving him 6lbs. With 8 wins and 8 places (including 2 places at Group 1 level), “we think you can BANK on this one”.
