Double dip at Gulfstream

Both King Ting and Dynamic Holiday were drawn #1 yesterday in their races at Gulfstream Park and both were able to have ground saving, rail hugging trips, both ridden by Ramon Dominguez!  King Ting was breaking his maiden after a couple of thirds and a second and Dynamic Holiday was extending her winning streak to four, this being her first Graded Stakes.  Congratulations to West Point Thoroughbreds and Augustin Stable. 

Musn’t forget Cherokee Artist who was second in his race.

Dynamic Holiday extends winning streak in Herecomesthebride

Dynamic Holiday extended her winning streak to four and remained perfect in three stakes starts this season with a two-length victory in the $150,000 Herecomesthebride Stakes (G3) on Sunday at Gulfstream Park.

The three-year-old Harlan’s Holiday filly opened the season with a nose win in the Tropical Park Oaks on January 1 at Calder race Course and entered the Herecomesthebride off a clear victory in the Florida Oaks on February 12 at Tampa Bay Downs for trainer Graham Motion and owner-breeder George Strawbridge Jr.

Making her graded stakes debut in the 1 1/8-mile Herecomesthebride, Dynamic Holiday overhauled four opponents in the final three-eighths of a mile and powered free to a convincing win under Ramon Dominguez. She covered the distance in 1:46.60 on firm turf to prevail at 4.10-to-1 odds.

“Our trip was perfect,” Dominguez said. “I was hoping she was going to put herself into contention because it seems like you have to be pretty close to the pace on the turf right now. Everything worked out perfectly. There was enough speed to set up her run and she was good again today. Her last few races, she’s really gotten good.”

Dynamic Holiday improved to four wins and two seconds from seven starts and the $90,000 winner’s share boosted her bankroll to $232,575. She will get a break before targeting some of the stakes for three-year-old fillies this summer.

“I think that was her best race yet and she’s run some good ones,” said David Rock, assistant trainer to Motion. “The plan has been that after this race she would get a break, probably until summer.”

Pennsylvania-bred Dynamic Holiday is out of the stakes-winning Dynaformer mare Dynamic Cat. Grade 1 winner Creaking Board (GB), by Night Shift, is her third dam.{jcomments on}
