Danehill Dancer, one of the top sires in the world, has been pensioned from stud duty due to declining fertility, according to the Racing Post.

The 21-year-old stallion by Danehill, was the champion 2-year-old colt in Ireland in 1995. During that season, he won both the National Stakes (Ire-I) and the Phoenix Stakes (Ire-I). As a 3-year-old, Danehill Dancer developed into one of the top sprinters in Europe.

Retired to stud in Australia in 1997, Danehill Dancer was soon relocated to Coolmore Ireland, where he stood for the rest of his career. As a stallion, Danehill Dancer has sired such outstanding runners as Group 1 winners Mastercraftsman, Dancing Rain, Choisir, Lillie Langtry, Alfred Nobel, and Planteur.
