Hollywood: Dubawi Heights finally wins

Email

Dubawi Heights, who earned more than $380,000 in England last year in a season that included three stakes-placings, finally beat maidens in the United States in Sunday's fifth race, holding off a determined Tashzara.

Dubawi Heights ($3.60) ran 1 1-16 miles on turf in 1:41.70, finishing three-quarters of a length in front of Tashzara, who was eight lengths clear of third-place finisher Irish Torrent in the field of six.

Trained by Simon Callaghan, Dubawi Heights was eighth in her U.S. debut in September and second in a maiden special weight race on Oct. 10. Last year in England, she was second on the $401,600 Watership Down Stud Sales race at Ascot and second in the $1.2 million Tattersalls Fillies 800 Stakes at Newmarket.

Dubawi Heights won the first leg of Sunday's pick six, which drew a pool of $192,888.
