Pennsylvania Leaderboard: Disco Ebo Carries The Pace Through The Summer

Disco Ebo set the early pace among Pennsylvania incentive award earners for the 2023 season, and Weigelia filly has maintained that advantage through the early summer months, bringing in $193,952 to her various connections for her Keystone State roots.

That figure was compiled with Pennsylvania breeder’s awards, stallion owner’s awards, and owner’s bonuses through July 31, creating one of the country’s most lucrative incentive structures.

Disco Ebo earned her spot at the top of the list over the course of four starts, all at Parx Racing.

On Jan. 24, Disco Ebo took a four-wide trip through to a powerful stretch drive to prevail in a six-furlong race by two lengths under jockey Frankie Pennington. The same rider was aboard on Feb. 15 when Disco Ebo led at every point of call in a 5 1/2-furlong race to win easily by 6 3/4 lengths.

Disco Ebo then entered stakes competition for the first time this season, easily going wire-to-wire in the Penn’s Landing Stakes on March 7 to win by a widening 6 3/4 lengths.

The filly suffered her first and lone defeat of 2023 thus far in the Unique Bella Stakes on April 24, getting clear early, but ultimately relenting to Morning Matcha to finish second. She has not raced since the Unique Bella, but she has been working toward a return at Parx.

Robert Reid Jr. trains Disco Ebo for the partnership of Cash Is King and LC Racing. Because the filly was both bred and sired in Pennsylvania, she was eligible for a 40 percent owner bonus on her purse earnings for races at Parx. In Disco Ebo’s four starts, her owners earned an additional $28,560 because of her status in the Pennsylvania-bred program.

Disco Ebo was bred in Pennsylvania by Stephen and Susan Quick’s St. Omer’s Farm, which earned $67,984 in breeder’s awards for the filly’s four starts. Horses bred and sired in the Keystone State are eligible for a 40 percent purse bonus on non-maiden races.

The filly earned WynOaks Farm, the home of sire Weigelia, $16,996 in stallion’s awards. Registered Pennsylvania-breds by a state-resident sire earn a 10 percent bonus on purse for first-through-third efforts at tracks within the state.

Over the course of three seasons on the track, Disco Ebo has won eight of 17 starts and earned $488,444. Three of those victories have come in stakes company – one each at two, three, and four.

Disco Ebo is out of the winning Disco Rico mare Katarica Disco, who is the dam of 10 winners from 11 foals to race.

The cross between Weigelia and Katarica Disco has proven especially effective, also producing Smooth B, a multiple stakes winner and earner of $772,267; stakes winners Fat Kat and Fore Harp, Grade 2-placed Disco Rose, and stakes-placed Pink Princess.
