Sadler Excited About Dawnie Macho

Trainer John Sadler hopes the $100,000 Landaluce Stakes for 2-year-old fillies Sunday will be the dawning of a glittering California campaign for Dawnie Macho.

“I’m excited about her,” said Sadler Thursday from his stable after entering the recent acquisition from Chicago in the six-furlong meet championship.

Dawnie Macho was purchased privately for Gary and Cecil Barber after winning her debut at Arlington Park by five lengths in track-record time of 51.16 seconds for 4 ½ furlongs on June 12.

“She worked nicely here Monday for the first time, five furlongs in 1:01,” said Sadler, who named Joe Talamo to ride the chestnut in the Landaluce. “She’s quick, but I think she can rate.”

Sadler, who has enjoyed success in recent years with Dawn Before Dawn, Dawn After Dawn and Third Dawn for owners Ike and Dawn Thrash, hopes to enjoy more luck with the name for the Barber brothers. Dawnie Macho is by Macho Uno out of the unraced Montbrook mare Blush of Dawn.

Sadler won the Landaluce two years ago with Emmy Darling.
