Dancinginherdreams Rolls in Pocahontas

Even-money choice Dancinginherdreams charged through an opening at the rail approaching mid-stretch and romped to victory under a patient Julien Leparoux in the $165,450 Pocahontas Stakes (gr. III) on the opening day of the Churchill Downs fall meet Oct. 31.

Dancinginherdreams, who won geared down by 5 1/4 lengths, certainly lived up to her billing on Churchill's "Stars of Tomorrow" card for 2-year-olds. Connections for those pre-entered in the Grey Goose Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), to be held Nov. 5 at Churchill, can be thankful they won't be facing the inexperienced daughter of Tapit--Mayan Milagra, by Menifee.

Owned by John Oxley and trained by John Ward Jr., the $330,000 Keeneland yearling purchase has won her two starts by a combined 10 1/4 lengths. The lighty-framed filly completed the one-turn mile over a fast track in 1:38.59, nearly matching the winning time posted by 2-year-old colt Astrology (1:38.43) in winning the Iroquois Stakes (gr. III) two races earlier at Churchill. Read More
