26/01/02 Dash For Cash Gets Home "At Last"
0126dashforcash.jpg (10844 bytes)The win by Dash for Cash in this afternoon's $125,750 Australia Day Vase (1400m) ended what became a frustrating run for the highly talented three-year-old

"At last!" That was the way leading trainer Rick Hore-Lacy felt immediately after his grey colt had photo-finished out the in form Barkada for the Group Three event.

The win gave New Zealand jockey Greg Childs his fourth win for the afternoon and he joined in the spirits of Australia Day be declaring "God bless New Zealand - Thank Christ for Australia."

Dash for Cash was having his first run since returning from a gallant third to the classy filly Ha Ha in the Magic Millions 3YO Trophy on the Gold Coast on January 12.

Hore-Lacy said he wasn't concerned with how the colt would run in today's race as he had coped well with the Gold Coast's hottest day in 100 years (over 43 degrees).

Dash for Cash, who had run second to Viscount in the Group Two Bill Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley last October, had already placed this preparation before the Gold Coast third. His second in the listed Christmas Stakes to Intelligent Star was a great effort, with that winner since performing well in Group class.

A son of Secret Savings, Dash for Cash will now be aimed toward the Group One Australian Guineas after a run over 1400 metres next start.

"He'll go to the Australian Guineas after we run in the Debonair Stakes," Hore-Lacy said.
