Lone Star: 'Dude' gets a derby

Email

Game On Dude, who earlier this year was seventh in the Grade 1 Florida Derby, got a derby of his own on Saturday, when he rolled home by four and a half lengths in the Grade 3, $200,000 Lone Star Derby. It was the second career stakes win for the horse, who took a maiden allowance at Gulfstream Park in February.

Game On Dude ($4.40) raced about five lengths off pacesetter Henshin Hero, overtook that one into the stretch, and went on to cover the mile and a sixteenth in 1:44.61. Martin Garcia was aboard for trainer Bob Baffert, who since February has shipped in and won seven stakes in this region, between Oaklawn, Sunland Park and Lone Star.
