Breen has another fast filly

Email

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Kelly Breen knows a little something about how to train a fast 3-year-old filly, considering his trainee Bickersons is among the nation's leaders in that division. He's got another up-and-coming young filly that fits the same bill, Dinner With D C, who should be the horse to catch in Wednesday's $48,000 allowance feature at Gulfstream Park.

Dinner With D C, a daughter of Dixie Union, showed promise right off the bat when she led throughout to post a 6 1/4-length maiden special weight victory in her career debut at Monmouth Park on July 4. Breen wheeled Dinner With D C back against stakes company on the turf at Penn National, but she was unable to duplicate her debut, finishing sixth and last over a yielding course in the Turf Starlet Stakes on Aug. 1. She has not started since.

"I really thought she'd like the grass because of her pedigree, but it rained the night before the race, the turf was soft, and she did something in behind during the race that forced me to stop on her for the rest of the season," Breen explained. "She's worked exceptionally well for her return. She's really very fast. The big question is how far she will go, although she's by Dixie Union so the distance of this race really doesn't concern me."

A field of 11 3-year-old fillies was entered to go 6 1/2 furlongs under entry-level allowance conditions in Wednesday's main event. Five of them are coming off a maiden win.

Golden Galleon captured her only start by three lengths over Aqueduct's inner track on Dec. 10. She will run in the name of trainer Todd Pletcher's assistant Anthony Sciametta Jr. on Wednesday because Pletcher is serving a 10-day medication suspension.

Sulis and Chistosa also won their only start. Sulis won in November at Woodbine, while Chistosa has been idle since rallying to a three-length maiden win last July at Calder.

Aregulationhottie is the only member of the field with a win over the track, having rallied to a 1 1/2-length maiden decision here Jan. 6 in her third start.

Tia also needed three tries before finally earning her diploma going a mile at Aqueduct in her 2-year-old finale.

Both Lavender's Spirit and Successful Song were stakes placed at Calder at 2. Lavender's Spirit finished second in the Cassidy, and Successful Song third in the one mile and 70-yard Brave Raj in her 2009 finale.
