Bank's Hill, owned and bred by Juddmonte Farms, is a full sister to Dansili, a multiple group stakes winner in France. He was the highweighted older horse at 4 on both the English and French Free Handicaps for seven to 9 1/2 furlongs.
Dansili finished second in the 1999 French Two Thousand Guineas, and banked more than $570,000 on a record of 5-4-3 in only 15 starts.
Hasili, the dam of Bank's Hill and Dansili has produced five foals, two of which started and won races. Her 2000 yearling filly and 2001 weanling colt are by Danehill, and thus are full siblings to Bank's HIll and Dansili.
Danehill was the leading sire in Australia in 1995, 1996, 1997, and 2000.. Danehill, winner of the 1989 Ladbroke Sprint Stakes, has produced, among others, Fairy King Prawn (2000 Horse of the Year in Hong Kong and a winner of more than $3.2 million), and Desert King (multiple group I winner of more than $1 million).
