Nice win by Miss Vasari
The winners keep coming for Oakland Park with the impressive performance of Miss Vasari on Saturday in the Tabtouch Better Your Bet Handicap (60+ graduation) over 1200 metres.
Miss Vasari, a daughter of former Oakland Park stallion Rogano, out of the Ferocity (AUS) mare Miss Safari takes her record to 9 starts for 3 wins and 2 seconds and $93,350 in prizemoney and Westspeed bonuses from her two racing campaigns.
Her win on Saturday was full of merit given she was eighth of the eleven runners from the start until the turn in a race where the leader stacked the field up for a sit and sprint home. She has run home her last 600 metres in a very quick 33.48 seconds which was made even more impressive given she had difficultly in getting a clear run in the straight. Trainer Dan Morton will aim now for the Westspeed Platinum race day in two weeks.
Congratulations to our good friend Wes Cameron who races the horse in partnership with Oakland Park.
