DASH FOR DREAMS showed a very sharp turn of foot to get off the mark in the QTIS Three-Year-Old Maiden Handicap at the Sunshine Coast over 1200m.
The 3YO filly was making her fourth career start following a lengthy spell, and duly landed her debut win in style after finishing in the places in her last two races.
Victory looked unlikely at the 400m mark, with DASH FOR DREAMS in ninth place, but she responded to the urgings of Ryan Wiggins to shoot past the $1.50 favourite, Crypto Tycoon.
The win was all the more impressive given that the runner-up is highly regarded, and is raced by the same connections as Group 1 winner Alligator Blood.
Congratulations to DASH FOR DREAMS’ ownership group, Mr J M Young, Mrs S A Young, Mr J J M Young and Miss S J Young.
