REMEMBER the name. Daring Tact. At the weekend this three-year-old filly, a first crop daughter of Epiphaneia (Symboli Kris S), stretched her unbeaten record to three when she effortlessly won the first classic of the year in Japan, the Group 1 Oka Sho-1000 Guineas.
Winner of her only outing at two, Daring Tact was impressive on her seasonal bow in the Listed Elfin Stakes back in February and she went into everyone’s notebook after that. She will now step up in trip for the Japanese Oaks, and few will oppose her chances of recording a classic double. She is already quite the bargain buy as she was sold for the equivalent of about $110,000 as a yearling.
