Dullahan, Little Mike Work at Churchill Downs

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.

Multiple Grade 1 winners Dullahan and Little Mike posted separate five-furlong workouts on Saturday at Churchill Downs in preparation for upcoming starts at Belmont Park.

 

Dullahan, a 3-year-old owned by Donegal Racing, traveled the distance in 1:01.80, while Priscilla Vaccarezza’s Little Mike, a 5-year-old, was clocked in 1:03.20.

 

“They both worked great and they’ll work at Churchill Downs next week, then we’ll work on getting a plane [to New York ],” said their trainer, Dale Romans.

 

Dullahan defeated older horses to win the Del Mar’s Grade 1 Pacific Classic on August 26 over Polytrack and is targeting the Grade 1, $600,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational on September 29 or the Grade 1, $400,000 Jamaica on October 6, also on the turf. The 1 ½-mile Joe Hirsch Turf Classic is open to 3-year-olds and up, while the 1 1/8-mile Jamaica is restricted to 3-year-olds.

 

Little Mike will attempt to carry his speed an additional quarter-mile in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic after leading from start to finish in the Grade 1, 1 ¼-mile Arlington Million on August 18.
