When you have a horse with natural speed, which Bizzy Echo has, it’s easier to build on the rest of their game. From a fitness and experience standpoint, she certainly got a lot out of her debut. Overall, a very nice start to what we hope will be a long and successful career.
In what was her career debut for Brilliant Racing Partnership III & Tagg Team Racing, Bizzy Echo pressed a fast pace set by the experienced and very talented Euphoric before finishing fourth of eight. She earned a very respectable 60 Beyer and a 75 Bris speed figure for her efforts. Trainer Bernie Flint told me after the race that he will likely run Euphoric in the Fair Grounds Oaks (G2) next time out. Overall, Bizzy handled the race day experience — the paddock, warm-up, starting gate and competition — very well. Jockey Mitchell Murrill said she got a little lost around the turn and a little tired late, but that she kept trying to the wire. Travis and Greg Foley were also pleased with the effort.
