Description: Flintshire (GB) DK B/, H, foaled April 4, 2010 (Dansili (GB) - Dance Routine (GB), by Sadler's Wells) is tearing up North American turf with his third straight Graded Stakes victory in the 12 furlong $1 million Grade I Sword Dancer over the 'firm' turf course at Saratoga August 27, 2016. Jockey Javier Castellano and Flintshire raced along the inside, trailing early, as Inordinate overtook Roman Approval after a quarter mile for the lead. Flintshire was bottled up as they rounded the far turn and when the rail opened up he glided on through to win as much the best by 1 3/4 lengths over Money Multiplier. Money Multiplier also found himself boxed in behind the tiring pacesetter, had to take up and find running room along the outside. He was closing well however Flintshire was already gone. It was 2 3/4 lengths further back to Twilight Eclipse in third. Flintshire won the Sword Dancer in 2015, from there he went on to run second in the G1 Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp and then ran second in the G1 Hong Kong Vase at Sha-Tin for his final race in 2015. His first start of 2016 was the G1 Manhattan at Belmont June 11th. He then won the G2 Bowling Green July 30th at the Spa. Trainer Chad Brown and owner/breeder Juddmonte Farms are staying in the US this year with plans to run in the G1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational October 1st at Belmont and then go onto the Breeders' Cup Turf November 5th. The Sword Dancer is a Breeders' Cup Challenge 'Win & You're In' Series race and Flintshire gets a free pass into the BC Turf. Flintshire is 8-10-1 from 22 starts and he has earned $8,809,910.
