Dyna's Destiny wins in photo


Favored Dyna's Destiny ($5.80) displayed determination in the late going to prove narrowly best in Sunday's $75,000 Bedanken Stakes at the Fair Grounds meeting at Louisiana Downs. Best Mom finished a nose back, and a head better than Christmas Stocking, in the three-way photo finish.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Dyna's Destiny won for the second time in six starts, all on the turf. She stalked the early pace under Carlos Marquez Jr. before lodging a bid on the outside turning for home to set up the exciting stretch battle. Dyna's Destiny covered the mile in 1:35.63 over firm going.
