His runners include ANN’S SMART DANCER and her brother PHIL DANCER, who combined have won or placed in 11 stakes and earned nearly $650,000.
A graded stakes-winning son of leading sire A.P. INDY, DANCE WITH RAVENS has been among of the most popular young stallions in the U.S., having covered 346 mares in his first three years at stud.
Among the top runners of his generation at 2 and 3, DANCE WITH RAVENS is out of the incomparable Hall of Famer DANCE SMARTLY, a Horse of the Year in Canada and Eclipse Award winner at 3 in the U.S.
