Dullahan Wins US Gr1 Pacific Classic Stakes
Meanwhile, at Del Mar in California, 3YO colt Dullahan (Even The Score-Mining My Own, by Smart Strike) finished strongly in track-record time to score a 0.5-length victory for trainer Dale Romans in the US$1 million Gr1 Pacific Classic (10 furlongs) for 3YOs+, over 5YO gelding Game On Dude (Awesome Again-Worldy Pleasure, by Devil His Due) & 7YO entire Richard's Kid (Lemon Drop Kid-Tough Broad, by Broad Brush). Winner of the Gr1 Kentucky Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland last April & Gr1 Breeders' Futurity in 2011, and placed in the Gr1 Kentucky Derby at his last start, Dullahan took his record to 3 wins & 5 placings from 12 starts. He is a half-brother to 2009 Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird (see item below).
