Dullahan named Horse of the Del Mar Meet

Dullahan wins the Pacific Classic

Dullahan, who shipped in from Churchill Downs for  Donegal Racing Inc. and trainer Dale Romans to win Del Mar’s $1 million Pacific Classic,  was named Horse of the Meeting for 2012 by vote of the media.

Ridden by Joel Rosario , Dullahan, a 3-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Even The Score,  prevailed over favored Game On Dude, the No. 1 handicap horse in the country, by a half-length in Polytrack record time of 1:59.54  for 1 ¼ miles.  Dullahan was also voted top 3-year-old of the meeting.

Amazombie, winner of the Grade I Bing Crosby Handicap, was a unanimous  choice as  top sprinter and Executiveprivilege, winner of the Sorrento Stakes and the Grade I Del Mar Debutante, was a unanimous selection in the 2-year-old filly category.

Acclamation, the 2011 Horse of the Meeting, was voted top grass horse and older horse. Other division champions were Include Me Out (Older filly/mare), Lady of Shamrock (3-year-old filly) and Rolling Fog, 2-year-old.

timyuan you want meet me, I luv u looong time
funndy it says Tapeta surface here and that is NOT the same as Polytrack. http://www.meydan.ae/racecourse.asp#racecourse
I've been thinking about this horse and having seen him run down Hansen with ease at the poly track at Keeneland earlier this year, I think his connections should prep him for the Dubai World Cup. The Meydan poly-track, which most US shippers cannot handle would fit Dullahan just fine.
That is absolutely the right choice. Congrats to Dullahan, Dale Romans and the connections!
Congratulations Dullahan, Romans Racing, Big Dale, Donegal Racing all the connections on being named Del Mar's "Horse of the Meeting" by the media after winning the $1M Pacific Coast Classic!
I agree with these as well, Great article to.
that sounds right to me as well. nice article!
You certainly can't argue with these picks.
