Dandino captures the 2013 Amer. St. Leger

Bidding in the online auction at bloodstockauction.com ended on Tuesday, with graded-stakes placed Dandino failing to meet his $200,000 ($140,800 US) reserve price. Dandino earned over $1.8 million US while racing on the flat, but bidding only went up to $180,000 ($126,720 US), according to racingpost.com.

The 9-year-old son of Dansili (Danehill) was on the Australian bloodstock auction site after pulling up with a bit of suspensory filling in his final race. One of the owners with Australian Thoroughbred Bloodtsock, Darren Dance, said: “The people running the site have placed well-bred horses before at stud.

Since Dandino didn't meet his reserve, Dance will look to deal privately.
