Second Grade One for Lucky Filly
A half-sister to Champion Chilean 3YO Filly and US Grade I winner Dacita, Dafonda (3f Lookin at Lucky x Daja, by Seeker’s Reward) added a second Grade I victory to her resume when taking out the Grade I Clasico Polla de Potrancas at Club Hipico de Santiago in Chile on Sunday.
Trained by Juan Silva, she won the 1700 metre feature by half a length and has the overall record of four wins and two seconds from just six starts.
She is the second Grade I winner from blue hen Daja, who has left 10 winners headed by Dacita and Dafonda in addition to Grade III winner Dosificado and stakes-winner Lady Estefania.
Dafonda is the second South American Grade I winner in less than a week for Lookin at Lucky, who sired El Picaro (3c Lookin at Lucky x La Sinverguenza by Scat Daddy) to win the colts equivalent, the Grade I Clasico Polla de Potrillos at Club Hipico.
