Dialed In Wins US Gr1 Florida Derby
In the US, the colt Dialed In (Mineshaft-Miss Doolittle, by Storm Cat) motored home from the tail of the field to snatch victory by a head in the US$1 million Gr1 Florida Derby (9 furlongs) for 3YOs at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach north of Miami. Dialed In (ridden by Julien Leparoux for trainer Nick Zito) defeated front-running colt Shackleford (Forestry-Oatsee, by Unbridled) & fellow colt To Honor And Serve (Bernardini-Pilfer, by Deputy Minister). Redial (a US$475,000 yearling at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton August Sale) took his record to 3 wins (also including January’s Gr3 Holy Bull Stakes over 8 furlongs at Gulfstream Park) & a runner-up from 4 starts for US$879,206 earnings.
