Dec 05, 2013
ATB’s Darren & Liz Dance may be jetting off to Hong Kong tomorrow to see their UK based stayer Dandino contest the 2013 Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin on Sunday, but back home it will be business as usual for Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock with runners at Caulfield, Darwin & Terang over the weekend.
