Juddmonte sire Dansili dies aged 25 following short illness | Racing News

Juddmonte’s father, Dansili, died at the age of 25 following a brief illness.

The five-time winner was coached in France by Andre Fabre and won or placed in all but two of his 14 heats, finishing second in three groups one.

After retiring from the track, Dansili spawned 22 Group One winners, including Rail Link, winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in 2006 and Harbinger, winner of the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes of 2010.

He was retired from stallion service in 2018 at the age of 22.

Simon Mockridge, UK general manager for the stallion, said: “As a racehorse he has been enduring, genuine, consistent and competently managed by Andre Fabre throughout his career.

“Even though he deserved a Group One victory at the racecourse, having finished in six, they somehow always managed to elude him.

“During his 17 years as a stallion he played an intrinsic role alongside Oasis Dream in establishing the reputation of Juddmonte’s roster. A truly wonderful, reliable and uncomplicated character as a stallion, he was a firm favorite of the stallion team and Juddmonte as a stallion. Whole stallion. We will miss him very much. “
