Grade 1 Win Next Goal for Dynaslew

Trainer Seth Benzel said Live Oak Plantation’s Dynaslew is in “fantastic shape” after earning her second graded stakes victory in yesterday’s Grade 2, $200,000 Ballston Spa.

Since arriving in Benzel’s barn, the 4-year-old daughter of Dynaformer has demonstrated a versatile running style, wiring the field in the Grade 3 Beaugay at Belmont Park on May 1, but stalking the pace the Ballston Spa. When second in the Grade 3 All Along Stakes at Colonial Downs, she closed from off the pace.

“She has taken her game up to the next level. She’s matured a lot,” Benzel said. “Fortunately for us, she has put herself in a position where she can be tactical. She can be rated off the lead. She can take the lead. She gives you options right off the bat. It’s nice to have those options going into these races.”

As for Dynaslew’s plans for the remainder of the year, Benzel wants to focus on winning a Grade 1 race.

“Our first goal is to get a Grade 1 under her belt between now and the end of the year,” he said. “Next year, after a year like this, we could develop her going longer. I think she’s come a long way this year already. She’s going what she’s doing very easily and well within herself.
