Lil’ Leprechaun Dash
Grade Two – Purse $375,000
Restricted to  Year Olds and Older, Fillies and Mares
7 Furlongs on Dirt

 

Five ladies have traveled over to Italy in search of an elusive “Lil’ Leprechaun” that has lost his way and needs to be taken back to the land of the green. It should be a close race with any one of four likely to take home the win.

 

1) family focus
dawnp farm
t dillungham                              15/1

Out of the hotraces2 farm is this four year old DAWN APPROACH filly. She comes in off an eight place finish in her last start at the Twin Penguin Turf Mare Sprint where she ran 83 speed over five furlongs. She has finished outside the money in six straight races after getting off to a solid start in her career with three wins and three runner ups in her first seven, Owner dawnp tries her on dirt here for just the second time here in hopes that a change of surface will get this filly back on track.

2) guillem
teamasr1 farm
m kiprusoff                                           3/1

Out of the hotraces2 farm is this five year old GHOSTZAPPER mare. She comes in off three runner up finishes in a row with the most recent coming at the Grade 2 Gleaming Invitational where she was beaten by parted ways by one and a half lengths. Lots of success at Stakes and Graded Stakes has earned more than eight-hundred thousand dollars for her owner and she should have a good chance to add to that total with another good showing here today.

3) parted ways
trotking2 farm
e bernstein                                            9/5

Out of the trotking2 farm is this four year old TAPIT filly. She comes in off a win at this distance at the Grade 2 Gleaming Invitational where she posted 111 speed. She has eight wins in seventeen career starts and has earned more than half a million dollars. She comes in well rested and with that recent speed should be one of the favorites here out of the three hole.

4) rubinetto
wtas02 farm
j wilson                                     8/5

Out of the wtas02 farm is this five year old TAPIT mare. She comes in off back to back wins with the most recent coming at the Seeking the Band Dirt Mare Sprint where she ran 108 speed over five and a half furlongs on dirt. This impressive lady has finished in the money in twenty-two of her twenty-eight starts with sixteen wins. She has amassed more than one and a quarter million dollars with a win at the Grade 1 Princess Looney contributing greatly to that total. She will be one to watch here today and should have no trouble finding a spot on the board against this field of five.

5) matkap
kennyboydowns farm
d sparrow                                             7/2

Out of the kennyboydowns farm is this five year old AFTER MARKET mare. She comes in off a win last time out at the Zene Afleet Turf Mare Sprint where she ran 99 speed over five and a half furlongs. Has been streaking of late with four wins in six starts since being claimed by the new owner. Takes a big jump to Graded Stakes for the first time but might just have enough to find a spot on the board.
