Castle Village Fare claimed Dr. Disco for $20,000 on January 23rd, 2014, at Aqueduct, almost a year after our trainer Bruce Brown, who had managed Dr Disco for most of the horse’s career, had lost him to a claim. We ran Dr Disco right back in a NY-bred allowance race on January 31st, where, with his regular rider Mike Luzzi back in the saddle, he made a strong move in the stretch to finish second. Two races later, on April 4th, he won a NY-bred allowance.
Dr Disco has eight wins and 17 in-the-money finishes from 28 lifetime starts, including two wins, a second and a third in NY-bred stakes races. His second-place finish on January 31st put his lifetimes earnings total over $300,000.
Dr Disco is a chestnut horse by graded-stakes winner Disco Rico out of the stakes-winning mare Dr Margaret, by Dr. Blum. Dr Disco’s full sister, Dance Gal Dance, is also a multiple stakes winner, and his full brother, Dr Rico, is multiple stakes-placed.
Dr Disco was claimed away from us on May 31, 2014. We wish him well.
