Daddy Nose Best Edges Lucky Chappy

Daddy Nose Best, getting a great ground-saving trip from Julien Leparoux, won an all-out duel with Lucky Chappy to capture the $200,000 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) by a nostril at Golden Gate Fields Feb. 18.

The terrific finish to the 1 1/8-mile test for 3-year-olds gave trainer Steve Asmussen back-to-back victories in Golden Gate's most prestigious race. Asmussen, who won last year's El Camino Real with Silver Medallion, has now won with both of his starters at the San Francisco Bay Area oval.

This was the first stakes win for Daddy Nose Best, owned by Bob and Cathy Zollars of Dallas, Texas.

Leparoux, the French native currently based in Florida, had never before competed at Golden Gate, but he negotiated the Tapeta main track like he'd been doing it all his career.

Daddy Nose Best as good as his name!
With the big move by the little colt might just call him "Scrappy" Chappy ... and what an effort by DNB to prevail!
Daddy Nose Best was a tiger in the stretch run, Lucky Chappys drive from way off the pace was impressive.
