Despite hailing from a Derry Meeting family peppered with talented turf runners, Dame Dorothy was sent off the 7-5 favorite to win at first asking over the main track and overcame an eventful break and wide passage to earn "TDN Rising Star" distinction. Off in a tangle, the $390,000 KEESEP yearling purchase caboosed the field in the early going. With Javier Castellano aboard, she began to advance while parked at least four wide down the backstretch and appeared somewhat more at ease when steered into the clear and out of the kickback. She continued to roll while stacked up five deep on the far turn, and reeled in fellow firster Fade to Black (Street Cry {Ire}) after a long drive to graduate by a half-length. A $390,000 KEESEP yearling purchase, Dame Dorothy is a half to Mrs. Lindsay (Theatrical {Ire}), GISW-NA, G1SP-Fr, $1,201,335. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $42,000.
