Ferguson secures Dancing Rain

John Ferguson paid 4million guineas for Dancing Rain at the Tattersalls December Mare Sale in Newmarket.

The five-year-old mare, winner of the Epsom and German Oaks when trained by William Haggas, is in foal to Frankel.

Dancing Rain, a daughter of Danehill Dancer, was a renowned front-runner on the Flat and also claimed the British Champions Fillies' And Mares' Stakes at Ascot in 2011.
