Dancer’s Kin continues Ocean Park’s hot trot
Ocean Park’s impressive son Dancer’s Kin looks ready to make his mark in better company following his maiden success at Morphettville.
The two-year-old has showed satisfying progress with his breakthrough victory over 1050m coming off the back of four placings.
Dancer’s Kin is prepared by leading Adelaide conditioner Phillip Stokes, who has enjoyed previous success with the gelding’s family.
He also prepared half-sister Samara Dancer to win the Gr.2 Blue Diamond Prelude and half-brother Eclair Big Bang (Savabeel) for Gr.3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude honours.
The siblings are out of the English-bred Singspiel mare Ennerdale, also the dam of Gr.2 Sandown Guineas placegetter Black Sail, a brother to Éclair Big Bang.
Dancer’s Kin was purchased by Stokes for A$90,000 at last year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale.
