Dullahan Continues to Thrive at Belmont Park

08 October 2011. Dullahan and Kent Desormeaux win the Dixiana Breederss Futurity at Keeneland racecourse. Owned by Donegal Racing, Jerry Crawford, and trained by Dale Romans.

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.
