In the US, former shuttler Catcher In The Rye (Danehill-Truly A Dream by Darshaan) added a graded-stakes success when Irish-bred 5YO gelding Ryehill Dreamer (Catcher In The Rye-No Way, by Rainbows For Life) scored by a nose in the US$150,000 Gr2 American Handicap (9 furlongs on turf) at Hollywood Park in Califorina. Ryehill Dreamer (ridden by Joseph Talamo for trainer Julio Canani) defeated 4YO entire Sidney’s Candy (Candy Ride-Fair Exchange, by Storm Cat) & 5YO gelding The Usual QT (Unusual Heat-Lunge, by Western Fame).

Overall he now has 5 wins (also including Ireland’s 2008 Listed Golden Fleece Stakes over 7 furlongs at Leopardstown) & 4 placings (including April’s Gr3 Inglewood Handicap over 8.5 furlongs at Hollywood Park, plus 2009’s Gr3 San Rafael Stakes over 8 furlongs at Santa Anita & 2008’s Irish Gr2 Futurity Stakes over 7 furlongs at The Curragh) from 12 starts for US$298,953 earnings.
