Three for Dissident

The Lisa Latta-trained Diss Is Dramatic (2f ex Our Drama Queen by Darci Brahma) scored a career-best victory at Riccarton yesterday when winning the Berkley Stud Champagne Stakes (Listed, 1200m). Ridden by Tina Comignaghi, the two-year-old filly managed to get the better of a good duel with the runner-up Redmond (Ghibellines) to win by three-quarters of a length with a further neck back to Cheveux (Belardo) in third.

“Diss Is Dramatic had been a little unlucky last time as she got squeezed out of a gap when she was starting to make her run.” Latta said. “Tina rode her perfectly as she kept her in the clear and when she asked her to extend, she really showed some fight to get away on them near the finish”.

Out of the winning Darci Brahma (Danehill) mare Our Drahma Queen, Diss Is Dramatic is a half-sister to Randwick winner Cap Estel (Zoustar). The win provided Riverdene Stud stallion Dissident with a third individual stakes winner. The Group 1-winning son of Sebring (More Than Ready) will stand the 2022 breeding season for $6,600 (inc. GST).
