Dundalk date for Dansant

Dundalk date for Dansant

Gerard Butler will be on his travels again next month with Dansant and Pachattack booked for overseas dates.

Dansant has already raced in America and Dubai, won a conditions race at Deauville in August and finished fourth in a Group Two race in Turkey a few days ago.

Pachattack, a Listed winner at Newbury during the summer, is an experienced flyer herself having finished sixth in last month’s Beverly D. Stakes at Arlington Park.

“Dansant is going for a race at Dundalk, the Diamond Stakes on October 1 (a Breeders’ Cup Challenge race),” said Butler.

“We’re going to keep Pachattack back for the EP Taylor at Woodbine on October 16.

“She was very, very unlucky in America but she has come back to me and is in very good form.”
