Donegal Racing’s Dullahan maintained his busy
training busy schedule, galloping 1 ½ miles under exercise rider
Faustino Aguilar on Tuesday. The chestnut colt returned to the track
Monday for a jog following a four-furlong breeze in 45.97 on Sunday.
Trainer Dale Romans said Dullahan thrives on
activity, similar to his 2011 Preakness winner, Shackleford, who on May
28 won the Grade 1 Metropolitan Handicap.
“They’re different physical specimens, other than being
chestnut with a white blaze,” said Romans. “But they both like to train,
hold their weight, and maintain well with a lot of training. They seem
to be happy when they’re going.”
Shackleford was fifth in the 2011 Belmont for Romans, who finished third in 2005 with Nolan’s Cat and in 2010 with First Dude.
