Danner had struggled a bit making the transition to running against older horses, but he got back on track on Monday at Portland Meadows as he set a new track record for 300 yards when he completed the course in 15.51 seconds. The old record was set by Thinkin Strawfly who ran 300 yards on April 30, 1995 in 15.55.

Danner is trained by Hector Magallanes for owner Yaqueline Ibarra and was bred in the state of Oregon by Hayden Brothers Ranch.
