DAYSAN is a 3yr old colt by Temple City who is by Dynaformer, the same sire as Americain. He is from a fantastic female family out of a Group 2 Winning mare who has produced multiple Group class horses!

Firstly he is a horse trained by Owen Burrows who is well regarded but seems to leave “plenty in them” and as a result we feel he is a trainer not to be scared to buy from.

For a horse with just 4 career runs, all in his first preparation, off the figures he has run in England, we think he’s a horse that looks to be a progressive Saturday grade at minimum and hopefully much better.

From a price point of view he was 50% cheaper than we thought we would have to pay and hence our confidence is very high on him.

Form wise he is easy to like and will bring great upside on his arrival.

The Plan:

He will be booked on the plane in the next few weeks to come to Australia and arrive in November/December. He will be 2 weeks quarantine in England and then 2 weeks in Australia and then he will go straight into work.

There is no great plan with him but to simply look to place him to start to win his purchase price back similar to Mugatoo.

The horse is competitive at 2000m and can run 2600m on all conditions. Importantly he has a turn of foot and looks very genuine.

We are very confident he will be a great money earner and hoping he will make it to the better races in the Autumn but for now we’ll get him fit and healthy and start going through the grades.

1st Career Run – 16th August 2020 – Newbury over 2000m – Finished 3rd – Rating 88

Race comments: Burrows as a trainer rarely wins first time out and usually they are glorified barrier trials. We liked how the horse looked all at sea, very raw and green, ran into 2 very nice and above average horses and still finished so well.

The winner has won his race the start prior very impressively and then the start after this won just as impressively before his next start he would run 3rd in a hot Stakes race. The winner of that stakes race had run 2nd in a Group 1 and possibly the best Group 1 of the season.

The second horse here Piranesi had won very impressively the start prior and then the start post this won as easy as you like by 3 lengths at Ascot.

To get so close to 2 quality horses at your very first start and to run to a mark of 88 is an excellent sign and a certain warning sign that this horse and race was high quality.

Racing Post comments: DAYSAN missed the break but stayed on nicely to claim third behind a couple with wind to their name. A half-brother to a couple of smart performers in the US, he should be a lot sharper next time and there are races to be won with him.

2nd Career Run – 3rd September 2020 – Haydock over 2400m – Finished 2nd – Rating 82 (Best final 800m on the entire card)

Race Comments: With only a slow speed there was no surprise to see the overall rating down. But I’m very impressed to see the last 800m was the quickest on the day with the last 400m being the 3rd quickest on the day, a sign of class.

The heavy track was definitely not in his favour but I thought it was encouraging that he tried and could still run home in a decent time and best on the card which is very rare for a young horse.

3rd Career Run – 26th September 2020 – Chelmsford over 2600m – Finished 1st – Rating 93 (The final 600m was only 3 lengths slower than a 110 rated horse on the same card who is airborne at present. To get some big numbers from this race on a good quality card and rate so high is what confirms to us that he could be well above average)

Race Comments: The times here back to a firmer more genuine surface was the clincher. He’s run a high rating here that suggests Group ability. Being a very good card and a high class meeting we can line him up with genuine Group horses and to get so close to them is a very promising sign.

His Last run was on a bottomless track where they ran 50 lengths slower than par. It was a typically bottomless track and nothing you could take from it.
