Dreamaway has won the $500,000 W.A.T.C. Derby at Ascot Racecourse last Saturday, April 2, by an astonishing 1.5 lengths.
The talented young More Than Ready filly has now won five races in a row, all of Listed or Group quality.
Dreamaway won the Group 1 W.A.T.C. Derby ahead of talented colt Playing God, who ran second, and Rio Dane, who finished in third.
The winning filly’s jockey, William Pike, told of his excitement at riding such an outstanding horse racing talent.
“When you ride a filly as exciting as she is it makes you smile,” Pike said.
The jockey had a top run from barrier 11, and it wasn’t until the home turn that they ran into any trouble.
“I actually had a beautiful run but it went a bit pear-shaped turning for home,” Pike said.
“(Luckily) she’s got that turn of foot … it gets her out of trouble.”
