Dawn Approach Waits For Firmer Ground
Unbeaten Irish-bred juvenile colt Dawn Approach (New Approach-Hymn Of The Dawn, by Phone Trick) was considered a strong chance to remain undefeated had he run in last Sunday's Gr1 Phoenix Park Stakes for 2YOs in Ireland. The crack colt will still get his chance to go for his 5th straight career victory later this month when he tackles the Futurity Stakes, a race trainer Jim Bolger maintains was always the original goal for Dawn Approach (now 50 percent Darley-owned). Bolger didn't accept with Dawn Approach on the weekend due to the soft ground at The Curragh.
