RSA's 3 yo Jazil homebred Locura(DOM) won her first stakes race in grand fashion defeating the colts in the 1700 m Clasico Dia de Duarte-G3. The chestnut daughter of Let's Dance Again, by Green Dancer was imported in utero and races in the colors of Rancho San Antonio.
Set off as a 3/5 favorite, Locura(DOM) broke alertly but allowed Junior C.(DOM) and Trilogia A.(DOM) to lead the way through fractions of 23.0 and 47.3. Entering the second turn Locura's rider Odalis Severino made an early move and quickly gobbled up ground to easily sprint by Trilogia A.(DOM) and draw off by 2 1/2 lengths. The early move seemed like a mistake, when the late closing Royal Roger(DOM) and Time to Tango(DOM) engulfed Locura(DOM) in the final strides. Jockey Odalis Severino went to work on the filly who was able to hold on by a long neck.
Locura(DOM) was ridden to victory by Odalis "El Bob" Severino, is trained by Eugenio Deschamps and Juan Jimenez, is owned by RSA and represents the silks of Rancho San Antonio.
