It’s always great to have a winner on the opening day of the season but it was even better to have our first two-year-old winner. Requinto Dawn was a horse that showed early promise and he didn’t disappoint us. He was held up just behind the leaders by jockey Tony Hamilton and always looked to be travelling well. He made headway entering the final furlong and pulled clear under hands and heels to win by two-and-a-quarter lengths. A great start to the season for owners The Phoenix Racing CO.
