And the best is still to come with Hidden Dragon continuing to prove extremely popular with Queensland breeders.
Queensland Champion First Season Sire and Champion 2YO Sire, Hidden Dragon already boasts progeny earnings in excess of $5.16 million and his progeny have fared very well in Asia also - winners in Singapore, Macau and Hong Kong.
A $700,000 Easter yearling, Hidden Dragon was competitive in good company (on one occasion second to the mighty Silent Witness) over four seasons in Hong Kong.
Winning six races from 1000m to 1400m, he enjoyed a career highlight when taking out the Gr.3 Chinese Club Challenge Cup at Shatin.
A son of the mighty Danehill – a truly great sire of sires – Hidden Dragon hails from a highly successful local family, being a son of the triple Gr.1 winning mare Ballroom Babe. Also dam of the Gr.2 Furious Stakes winner Just Dancing and the Gr.2 McNeil Stakes winner Tahni Girl, Ballroom Babe is out of a half sister to the Gr.2 winner Reingard.
Another of her siblings is the dam of the dual Gr.1 winner Dandy Andy and she can also count amongst her relations the stakes winners Fence Postwal (Gr.1 Selangor Gold Cup), Balmeressa, River Chant, McGuane, Outlaws and Marquardt.
