Dance Sioux (Sioux Nation) Gets Off The Mark At Chantilly

Smart Two Year Old Winner For Sioux Nation At Chantilly

The Pascal Bary-trained Dance Sioux (2f Sioux Nation - Dancing Around, by Iffraaj) shaped like a smart prospect when winning Friday’s five furlong contest at Chantilly.

The second crop daughter of Sioux Nation shaped with promise on debut over six furlongs, with the winner Les Pavots (No Nay Never) having subsequently gained black-type. Reunited with Cristian Demuro on Friday, the chesnut broke well before settling behind the leaders and began to quicken from two furlongs out. Ridden to lead inside the final furlong, she ran on well to score by two lengths from 350,000gns yearling buy Paradisiacal.

Owned by Laghi France, Dance Sioux becomes the first winner bred by Ms Laura Flood out of Dancing Around, who has a yearling full-sister to the winner.
