If there was any doubt about D' Funnybone being the top 3-year-old sprinter in the nation, those questions were answered emphatically on March 20.
Racing for Paul Pompa Jr., D’ Funnybone outfought a couple horses for
the lead going into the turn, opened up a commanding lead in the
stretch, and held on for a 1 1/4-length win in the $150,000 Swale Stakes (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park. The son of D'wildcat
stayed undefeated in two starts this season and notched the fourth
grade II victory of his young career. He is trained by Rick Dutrow Jr.
