Dominus Back on Dirt in Ack Ack

Dominus wins 2012 Bernard Baruch at Saratoga.
Following a sixth-place effort to Wise Dan in the Shadwell Turf Mile (GI) at Keeneland, George Bolton, Stonestreet Stables and Spendthrift Farm’s Dominus will switch back to the dirt for Friday’s $100,000-added Ack Ack Handicap (GIII) at Churchill Downs.
 
A 4-year-old dark bay or brown son of Smart Strike, Dominus returned from a near year-long layoff in a seven-furlong allowance on the dirt at Saratoga and won by more than four lengths. He then made his turf debut in a winning effort in the Bernard Baruch (GII) at Saratoga prior to his off-the-board finish in the Shadwell Turf Mile.
 
“I don’t think (the surface) matters,” said Michael Dilger, assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher. “He worked well on the dirt here (at Churchill Downs) on Sunday. He’s just a good horse.”
 
In the aforementioned workout, Dominus breezed four furlongs on the fast main track in :51.60. The work ranked 59th of 77 at the distance.
 
“He’s doing very well and came out of his work well,” Dilger said. “We’re looking forward to running him here on Friday.”
