DISKO DASHES TO IMPRESSIVE WIN

 
 
 
 
 
In her first US start since being bought at the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale, DISKO DASKO showed she had acclimatised well to the move to Southern California, by winning a very decent allowance race at Santa Anita. She showed class and great courage for the win.
I would expect her to be able now to step up in grade and be very competitive in Stakes races later on in the meet and then at Hollywood Park.
I was really pleased for owner Deron Pearson and trainer Jim Cassidy as this was their first win from the horses purchased in the UK last fall, and I am certain that she will not be the last
 
A few days later another October purchase JAZZ ON THE BEACH ran a very decent race to finish 3rd in a $ 75,000 claimer. When I watched the video, I felt that she would definitely have been 2nd ( and might even have won) had she not gone quite so wide crossing the dirt and had she broken out of the gates better. She certainly showed a really good turn of foot and was closing like a train at the end., She will surely win a race or two.
