2025 Epsom 3yo Dash Preview

Introduced at the 2023 Epsom Derby Festival, the 3yo Dash is a race similar to the 'Epsom Dash' which is run over the five-furlong trip hence the 'Dash' name, however, this race is restricted to three-year-old runners.

The inaugural running was won by Michael Dods with Tatterstall who was sent off 8/1 under Connor Beasley winning from stall thirteen of the fourteen.

Because there have only been two renewals, there are no trends for this race but they will become available after some more renewals.
