Danedream Ambushes Arc Rivals

DANEDREAM, supplemented at a a cost of €100,000 earlier this week, blew her rivals out of the water, becoming the first winner of the Arc from Germany since Star Appeal in 1975.


Japanese breeder Teruya Yoshida bought a half share in the filly two days ago from Gestut Burg Eberstein, who purchased her for €9,000 as a yearling, and Danedream more than repaid her owners' faith by landing the £1,970,344.83 first prize.


With pacemaker Shareta and Snow Fairy following the 20-1 shot home, fillies filled the first three places with So You Think the best placed colt in fourth.

Thanks. I kept wondering when her odds were going to go down. I'm glad she was so off the radar.
I can't fathom So You Think's early position either, Footlick, but alas a better ride likeyl would have only produced 2nd place money. Danedream was awesome ... nice pick!
Danedream was my pick an I'm glad nobody focused in on her and the attention was on Galikova. The way So You Think was ridden was too strange considering his tactical speed. He should have been closer to the pace. But nobody was going to beat Danedream yesterday. It was a huge win.
A very strange Arc this year. With 2 very strange sub-plots that unfolded throughout the race. I still haven't decided which sub-plot I'm more shocked by? The relative ease in which Danedream battered the Arc field, setting a new track record for the Arc in the process? Or the unusually high number of so-called "high profile" horses who ran hugely disappointing races, and had no effect at all on the outcome of the race? Sarafina, Workforce, Nakayama Festa, Galikova, Reliable Man, Treasure Beach, and the list just goes on and on of the multiple G1 winning horses who didn't run well at all. Only Snow Fairy's 3rd and So You Think's 4th were any of the high profile horses running anything near what they're actually capable of running, and I really don't believe we even saw Snow Fairy or So You Think's best either? But credit where it belongs. Danedream ran a sublime race at Longchamp on Sunday to win the Arc. This young filly really was the cream of the crop. Her connection's are now saying that Danedream will come to the Breeders Cup. But they're going to keep their option's open as to whether Danedream will run in the BC F&M Turf? Or the BC Turf? As impressive as she was against Europe's best in the Arc. Danedream will have to be respected in either Breeders Cup race that she run's in, IMO.
