Trainer Will Walden | Coady

2nd-Churchill Downs, $86,540, Msw, 5-13, 2yo, f, 5f, :58.73, ft, 1 length.
DAZZLINGDOMINIKA (f, 2, Ghostzapper–Trappingsofsilver, by Trappe Shot) improved for a seventh to 'TDN Rising Star' Love Reigns (Ire) (U S Navy Flag) sprinting over the Keeneland turf course Apr. 29 to become the first winner in the young career of trainer Will Walden Friday at Churchill Downs. Quickly into stride from her outside draw, the chestnut was overtaken to her outside by Ski Slope (Frosted) with 3 1/2 furlongs to race, but held her spot at the fence for the run around the turn. Kept to task by Gerardo Corrales, Dazzlingdominika was back in front approaching the eighth pole and held sway late to hold the debuting Vicki Rose (Jimmy Creed) by a length at odds of 7-1. The first foal out of a half-sister to 2013 GI La Brea S. winner Heir Kitty (Wildcat Heir), Dazzlingdominika has a yearling half-brother by Mastery and a foal half-sister by Complexity. Sales history: $33,000 RNA Wlg '20 KEENOV; $30,000 Ylg '21 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $53,720. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
