Dancinginherdreams was well-hyped before her debut and was sent off the 3-2 favorite yesterday. Unhurried out of the gate, the gray filly trailed the field of 12 early behind fractions of :22.38, :46.06 and :58.33. She made a strong move to reach contention turning for home, was widest of all into the lane and inhaled the leaders before powering clear under a motionless Julien Leparoux. It was five lengths back to longshot Splendor Town (Speightstown) in second. A $40,000 KEEJAN yearling, Dancinginherdreams blossomed into a $330,000 KEESEP yearling. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $24,000.
