Pletcher Gives Dreaming of Julia a Do-Over

Dreaming of Julia edges My Happy Face in 2012 Frizette.

Despite suffering her first career defeat in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) last November in her 2012 season finale, Dreaming of Julia has been installed at the 4-5 for Saturday’s $250,000 Davona Dale (G2) at Gulfstream.

The Grade 1 stakes-winning daughter of A.P. Indy, who had been a force on the pace in her first three victorious starts, dropped well off the pace at Santa Anita and could get no closer than a distant third to front-running winner Beholder at the finish.

Trainer Todd Pletcher would love to have a do-over.

“If we had known everything we knew after the two days were over going into her race, we would have changed tactics a bit, considering how speed-favoring the track was,” Pletcher said. “How far back she was early, she actually ran well.”

John Velazquez has the return mount for Dreaming of Julia’s 3-year-old debut in the 1 1/16-mile stakes.
