Danzel Brendemuehl had tons of home runs; she had a keen eye for spotting horses that few looked at twice.  One of her biggest was when she purchased a colt for $19,500 on the last day of the Keeneland sale. She sold the horse to Ken Ramsey through Linda Sims at the OBS sale for $115,000. Ramsey renamed the horse Roses in May and that horse finished second in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Classic and the Emirates Airline Dubai World Cup (G1).

Aside from horses consigned by Brendemuehl, including Roses in May and Coaching Club American Oaks (G1)-winner Wonder Lady Anne L., were the impressive Strub Stakes (G2)-winner Monterey Jazz and grade 2-winner Fridays A Comin.

Others in Danzel’s repertoire are Munny’s Gold, Cara’s Time, Uncle Sigh, Bobby Bo and Fort Worth. One of her favorites was Fleetstreet Dancer, who she purchased for $22,000 and sold for $150,000. Everyone laughed at him because he walked like a duck, not for long.

Danzel’s career was racing horses, pinhooking and breeding. She was a firm believer that respect, kindness and patience brought the best results in any animal. She had a special affinity for horses all her life.
