The horse that put Kitchwin Hills stallion operation on the map Dane Shadow has passed away overnight due long-term health battles.

A stallion who exploded on the scene, he produced four Group 1 winners including superstar filly Red Tracer, as well as Hurtle Myrtle, Shellscrape & Shadows in the Sun.

“It’s been a pretty sad day for all at Kitchwin Hills, he was the first horse we ever stood and was phenomenal for us. He made such an electric start at stud people from right across the country were sending him their best mares.” said Kitchwin Hills Stud manager Mick Malone.

“He’s been around for so long it will be strange to drive down to the office tomorrow and he won’t be standing in his run as I go past”

Highlights of his career no doubt are the two Myer Classic winners Red Tracer & Hurtle Myrtle amongst a host of other big winners.

His ability to get a good filly was franked through the likes of Danish Twist, still holding a 65% winners to runners average rivalling the best throughout the Hunter Valley.

Kitchwin Hills & the Brown family will be forever grateful to Dane Shadow & his syndicate of owners for the ride he provided over such a long period.

There will be a quiet beer and a few stories out in the Hills tonight to reminisce some shads stories.

Take a trip down memory lane and recap on a few of his biggest winners!
