Dakota Gold poised for first run of the season at Doncaster
ONE of last year’s stars of the northern racing scene has been entered to make his first appearance of the season.
Michael Dods’ sprinter Dakota Gold went from strength to strength last season, winning five races, including the Great St Wilfrid Handicap at Ripon; the listed CALM Garrowby Stakes at York; and finishing off in the listed Rous Stakes at Ascot in October.
Now a six-year-old, the gelding is entered to make his seasonal debut in Doncaster’s listed Achilles Stakes over five furlongs on Sunday.
Michael said: “He’s got a penalty but there’s not a lot of races for him at the moment, so this is the obvious choice. There’s some showery rain forecast so it should be decent ground. He’s well in himself and this should be a good starting point.”
Another of the stable’s leading lights, Que Amoro, is also entered in the race but is more likely to wait for a fillies listed race at Ayr later in the month.
The yard is in good form, with two winners since the restart of racing – Brunch at Newcastle, and Arch Moon at Haydock Park.
