California vintner Jess Jackson has privately acquired the Medaglia d'Oro filly Dashing Debby, who won her career debut, the July 11 J J’sdream Stakes at Calder Race Course, in commanding fashion by 10 1/4 lengths.
Dashing Debby was purchased for an undisclosed price, according to Daily Racing Form, which cited the filly’s former owner/trainer, Gerald Procino.
Jackson’s purchase of Dashing Debby comes on the heels of him buying another talented Medaglia d’Oro offspring in Rachel Alexandra. The filly, who won the May 1 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) for Dolphus Morrison and L & M Partners, was purchased by Jackson’s Stonestreet Stables and Harold McCormick following that win. She subsequently captured the BlackBerry Preakness Stakes (gr. I) and Mother Goose Stakes (gr. I) for her new owners.
Dashing Debby, who was produced from the Marquetry mare Marquet Rent, was bred in Kentucky by Procino’s New Life Farm. Dashing Debby was ridden to her front-running J J’sdream victory by jockey Daniel Coa. The pair finished the six-furlong test in 1:12.19, recording a Beyer Speed Figure of 87.
Dashing Debby is a half-sister to the grade II stakes-placed filly Hopeful Image (by Gulch) and a full sister to a yearling colt. Procino reported he still owns Marquet Rent, who delivered a colt by Corinthian this year.
