There is no doubt, Dane Shadow represents the best value sire in the Hunter Valley. Already the sire of four individual Group 1 winners, including superstars like Shadows in the Sun, Hurtle Murtle, Shellscrape and the tough as nails multiple Group 1 winner Red Tracer. Dane Shadow continues to supply a constant stream of winners with now ten crops of racing age, yielding a strike-rate of 64% runners-to-winners, putting him on a par with Australia’s leading stallions. Similarly his strike rate as a broodmare sire is just as impressive with 66% runners-to-winners, highlighting his versatility on either side of the page.

"One thing about Harrier Jet that I find is a common trait with all of the Dane Shadows is their willingness to work, they just want to get the job done for you and as a trainer it makes my job a lot easier having a horse that wants to work with me."
"The Chris Waller-trained Red Tracer, who is a sister to Gr1 The Galaxy winner Shellscrape, was a tremendous competitor who won 15 of her 38 career starts including 12 stakes races for $2,371,010 in prize-money. Her career highlights were the 2013 Gr1 Tattersall's Tiara (1400m), where she defeated fellow Gr1 winner Streama, and the Gr1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington where she beat stable-mate Catkins."
