Dream Dancing Wins US Gr1 Del Mar Oaks
Meanwhile, also at Del Mar on the US West Coast, mega-sire Tapit brought up Gr1 winner number 23 with a rush finish by sophomore daughter Dream Dancing (Tapit-To Dream About, by Monarchos) in the US$300,000 Gr1 Del Mar Oaks (8.5 furlongs). She is a well-bred daughter of a full-sister to Gr1 Breeders Cup Distaff heroine Mecke, who was also owned by Dream Dancing's owner-breeder John Oxley. Given a peach of a ride by Julien Leparoux who allowed the filly to find her feet before punching her out to a nose victory, Dream Dancing edged out fellow 3YO fillies Beau Recall and Madame Dancealot (both by Cornerstone Stud shuttler Sir Prancealot). She now has 4 wins & 3 placings from her 11 starts for US$415,000 earnings.
