Dynaslew Eyes Diana

SaratogaLogo

Looking toward next Saturday’s Grade 1 Diana is Live Oak Plantation’s Dynaslew, who enters the race with two wins and one second place finish from three starts this year. The 1 1/8th-mile Diana will be the 4-year-old Dynaformer filly’s first start in Grade 1 company and she is expected to face a tough field including 2008 Champion Turf Female Forever Together – the winner of back-to-back editions of the Diana in 2008 and 2009 - as well as the 1-2-3 finishers from the Grade 1 Just a Game; Proviso, Phola and My Princess Jess.

 

“I think that Dynaformers tend to just mature later in life and the difference in her maturity between ages three and four has just brought her game to another level,” said trainer Seth Benzel. “Forever Together, Proviso, Phola – I consider those horses to be the cream of the crop and this will be a good test for her, but I think she’s ready to run against those types of horses.”

 

Dynaslew, winner of the Grade 3 Beaugay at Belmont Park on May 1 and runner up in the Grade 3 All Along at Colonial Downs on June 19, worked a half-mile over the Saratoga training track in 50.25 on Thursday.

 

“We don’t ask her to extend herself too much in the morning,” said Benzel. “It was a maintenance breeze.”

 

Eibar Coa, aboard Dynaslew for her win in the Beaugay, also has the call for the Diana, Benzel said.
