Two Oakland runners at Ascot today

Two runners at Ascot today, both in race 5, the benchmark 66+ over 1000 metres.

Progressive 3YO Helmet gelding, Beethoven, will make his return to racing. From only 6 starts he has won twice and placed twice and has banked $188,300 in prize money and West Speed bonuses. He should be in for a good campaign.

Our second runner is the 4YO Kuroshio mare, Daishio. She goes into the race off last start eight of eight, but only beaten 3.1 lengths after being back in the field for most of the race. Daishio is a winner of 3 races from 17 starts and has been placed 5 times. She has been a handy mare earning $194,410 in prize money and Westspeed bonuses.
