West Point Thoroughbreds LLC and Peacock Racing’s Dabo made it back-to-back victories at Arlington International Racecourse, winning the $75,000 Bruce D.Memorial. Run at 1 mile on the main track, the Bruce D. Memorial kicked off Saturday’s stakes action on International Festival of Racing Day.
Dale Roman’s trained Dabo was coming off a victory less than a month ago in the Illinois bred Springfield Stakes, which also was run at the mile distance. The son of Temple City sat last of the ten horse field through early fractions of 22.92 and 46.51. In his normal Dabo ways, the 3-year-old colt kicked into gear after turning for home, swallowed the field in one devastating move, and went on to win by 2 1/4th lengths.
“I was loaded the whole way,” said winning rider Jose Valdivia Jr. “I wasn’t worried at all sitting that far off because I know what kind of move he has. This horse is just a monster.”
The win brought Dabo’s record at Arlington to a perfect four for four, also improving his career record to 11-4-0-2 with earnings of over $150,000.
Dabo went to post as the 2-1 post time favorite, and paid $6.40 to win, $3.20 to place, and $2.60 to show.
Rounding out the top three was Can’t Hide From Me who paid $3.80 to place and $3.00 to show. Third was Lexitonian who paid $3.60 to show.
Next came Manny Wah, Dazzling Truths, Donnels Creek, Hero Tiger, Betwithbothands, Sovereign Impact, and Forloveofthecountry.
