Dullahan Breaks Maiden in Breeders' Futurity

Dullahan, a half-brother to 2009 Kentucky Derby presented by YUM! Brands (G1) winner Mine That Bird, broke his maiden in emphatic fashion by sweeping past second-choice Majestic City in deep stretch to win the 1 1/16-mile test by three-quarters of a length in 1:43.12.

 

The victory earned Dullahan a spot in the starting gate for the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) to be run November 5 at Churchill Downs.

 

Purchased for $250,000 at the 2010 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, Dullahan is trained by Dale Romans and ridden by Kent Desormeaux. The victory in the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity was the second for Romans, who also won the race in 2005 with Dawn of War.

 

Musical Flair led the field of 13 through early fractions in :22.67 and :46.15 with Majestic City in closest pursuit and Dullahan in mid-pack. Majestic City took command leaving the backstretch and opened a daylight lead entering the stretch.

 

At that juncture, Desormeaux had moved Dullahan into fourth place with a three-wide move and clear sailing at the leader that he passed in the final 50 yards.

 

A Kentucky-bred son of Even the Score out of the Smart Strike mare Mining My Own, Dullahan earned $240,000 for the victory and increased his bankroll to $272,091.

 

Winless in his first four starts, Dullahan returned $37.60, $14 and $9.60. Majestic City, ridden by Garrett Gomez, returned $4.80 and $4 with Optimizer, ridden by Robby Albarado, finishing a length back in third and paying $8.20 to show.

 

Completing the field in order were Take Charge Indy, Our Entourage, favored Shared Property, Gung Ho, Motor City, Personal Interest, Space Race, Musical Flair, Ancil and E Valentino.
