Dancing in Silks, winner of the 2009 Breeders' Cup Sprint, will not
ship to Churchill Downs for another shot at the $2 million race,
trainer Carla Gaines said Friday. Owner Ken Kinakin and Gaines made the
decision after Dancing in Silks worked six furlongs Thursday at
Hollywood Park in 1:13.20.
"He's not showing any interest," Gaines said. "I'm not taking him [to Churchill]."
After an outstanding 2009 campaign during which he won 4 of 5,
including the BC Sprint, Dancing in Silks has been unable to regain top
form in 2010.
