Smooth success for Satin Dancer
News of the action from Leopardstown where David Wachman's White Satin Dancer demolished her rivals in the opener.
Wayne Lordan was impressed with White Satin Dancer
David Wachman may be retiring at the end of the season but could be forgiven for having second thoughts after seeing White Satin Dancer demolish her rivals in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at Leopardstown.
The daughter of Oasis Dream quickened along the inside to take the lead from Xenobia halfway down the straight and stormed clear, crossing the line with four and three-quarter lengths to spare.
Wining rider Wayne Lordan said of the 4/1 winner: "She's a filly we've always liked. We ran her in a Group race first time out and she ran a good race. The race actually worked out as good as you can get it.
"Today she travelled easy and picked up well, she's a smart filly.
"I was a little bit cautious as she's after coming back from a break and has done well. She needed the break, filled out and got strong.
"I was hoping I wasn't going to get there too soon and she'd have a blow, but it didn't happen and it all worked out well."
