Encosta Filly Excites at Sandown

Promising filly Zombie Dancer (3f Encosta de Lago x Sun Song, by Desert Sun) made it two wins from three starts when she saluted in commanding fashion in the Benchmark 68 event over 1600 metres at Sandown on Wednesday for the Greg Eurell stable.

Zombie Dancer was a short priced favourite and never looked in danger, striding away at the finish to score by three lengths.

Zombie Dancer was a $225,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore draft and runs in the colours made famous by Australian Horse of the Year Miss Andretti as she is owned by Sean Buckley of Ultra Thoroughbreds.

Zombie Dancer is the first winner for stakes-placed Desert Sun (GB) mare Sun Song, a three-quarter sister-in-blood to champion mare Sunline.

Sun Song has a Fastnet Rock yearling colt that will be consigned to the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale by Willow Park Stud.
