Dixie Dot Com does it in track-record time


GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - Dixie Dot Com became a millionaire when he won the Grade 3 $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap in track-record time Monday at Lone Star Park. The race was the richest of seven stakes worth a cumulative $1 million.

One race after the Lone Star Park Handicap, Hallowed Dreams won her first start outside of Louisiana in the $100,000 Valid Expectations Stakes. Her career record now stands at 22 wins from 23 starts.

Dixie Dot Com ($3) raced just behind pacesetter Fan the Flame, took the lead midway on the turn for home, then powered home by 7 1/4 lengths. Fan the Flame held for second, while Big Numbers was third. Dixie Dot Com covered the 1 1/16 miles over a fast track in 1:40.53, lowering the mark of 1:40.87 set by Luftikus in last year's Lone Star Park Handicap.

"From the top of the stretch he was home free," said David Flores, who rode Dixie Dot Com for trainer Bill Morey Jr.

Dixie Dot Com earned $180,000 for the win, his eighth in 20 starts, which improved his career earnings to $1,042,775. He races for Don and Carole Chaiken and Bart and Ronelle Heller. Dixie Dot Com, a 6-year-old who is to retire to stud in California after this year, could start next in the Grade 3 Cornhusker Breeders' Cup Handicap at Prairie Meadows on July 7.

Hallowed Dreams ($3.40) led at every call to win the six-furlong Valid Expectations in a time of 1:08.34. She finished 2 1/2 lengths clear of second-place finisher Sweet and Firm. Hallowed Dreams is owned by Johnny Gaspard and her trainer, Lloyd Romero. She was ridden by Sylvester Carmouche.

* Voladora ($60.40) closed from just off the pace to win the $200,000 WinStar Distaff by a length over Dyna Likes Bingo. It was neck back in third to favorite Iftiraas. Voladora, ridden by Cliff Berry, covered the mile over soft turf in 1:42.23. She is trained by Donnie Von Hemel.

* Vinnie's Boy ($24) nipped pacesetter Wild Hits at the wire to post a neck win in the $100,000 Lone Star Park Turf Sprint. Cowboy Ettiquette ran third, while odds-on favorite Morluc faded to ninth and did not handle the soft turf, said jockey Robby Albarado. Vinnie's Boy covered five furlongs in 58.47. Donnie Meche rode the winner for trainer Steve Asmussen.

* Triple Card ($62.80) set a track record for six furlongs when he won the $50,000 Carter McGregor Memorial for state-breds in 1:08.06, finishing

3 1/4 lengths clear of Boots on Sunday. It was a nose back to Lights on Broadway. Don Simington rode the winner for trainer Eddie Milligan, Sr.

* Little Angel ($6.20) rolled to a four-length win over Flyers Legacy in the $50,000 JEH Stallion Station for fillies and mares bred in Texas. Little Angel ran with pacesetter Eagle Lake to the quarter pole, then kicked clear, covering 6 1/2 furlongs over a track rated good in 1:15.30. Deidre Panas rode the winner for Gilbert Ciavaglia.
