Lee Freedman’s well-bred filly Dizlago has won the third race at Caulfield Cup Day today, running to the line first ahead of a field of quality fillies in the $100,000 Listed Sportingbet Stakes (2000m).
Starting at $10 after not previously having handled a wet track, Dizlago was far too good for them today running an ideal Crown Oaks trial.
Dizlago settled well early, given the perfect ride by jockey Nicholas Hall.
In a gun run from an ideal barrier, Dizlago claimed a convincing win running her rivals ragged to finish an emphatic three lengths ahead of a Placement.
Placement was also eye-catching today, coming from the back of the field to crush the rest of the fillies and score second place.
In a photo-finish for third it was Bride Salama who narrowly got over ahead of the rest.
Dizlago, now a winner of two of her six career starts, is right on target for a run in the Crown Oaks at the Melbourne Cup Carnival on November 4 and is bred out of an Oaks winner Dizelle.
Odds-on favourite Our Pride And Joy was given every chance in the run early, but drifted out and was well beaten by the end.
The next event to get your bets down for at Ladbrokes.com.au is Race 4 – the $125,000 Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) due to jump at 1:20pm (AEDST).
