Dancing Allstar dominant in CTHS Sales Stakes


As expected, Dancing Allstar easily won the $55,694 CTHS Sales Stakes at Hastings on Saturday.

Under a confident ride by leading rider Mario Gutierrez, Dancing Allstar set fractions of 22.61 and 45.59 seconds before posting a final time of 1.17.30 for 6 1/2 furlongs. Remarkable Miss, who finished second in the five-horse field, made a threatening move at the quarter pole, but Dancing Allstar easily repelled the bid and then was ridden out by Gutierrez to win by 1 1/2 lengths.

Trained by Terry Jordan, Dancing Allstar was the champion 2-year-old filly in Canada in 2007, and she has cruised to easy wins in her three starts this year. She paid $2.10 to win as the overwhelming favorite.

Dancing Allstar has won eight times and finished second twice in 10 career starts for earnings of $395,785. She was purchased out of the 2006 Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society's British Columbia Division yearling and mixed sale by Bob Cheema for $15,500.
