DRT DYNASTY EXTENDS WINNING STREAK TO THREE, PULLS 20-1 UPSET IN THURSDAY FEATURE AT REMINGTON PARK
DRT Dynasty had not raced since Aug. 25 of last year, but the 6-year-old mare picked up right where she left off, winning her third in a row, taking the starter allowance feature Thursday night at Remington Park.
The daughter of FDD Dynasty, out of the Mr Jess Perry mare One Quick Jess, had not won at Remington Park in six previous tries, but loves the distance of 300 yards. She has now won 4-of-11 starts at the measure, while finishing first or second at the distance six times. With Stormy Smith in the irons, DRT Dynasty broke fifth from the gate but within a few jumps had the lead. It was a race to the blanket finish at the wire, as she and the top five horses finished within a length of each other. In fact, she beat runner-up Valiant Temptress by a head, and that horse was another head in front of third-place finisher Carson City Train, the 8-5 post-time favorite. The margins from the third horse back to the ninth place finishers were a half-length, a nose, a nose, a head, a neck and another nose.
The winner’s running time for the 300 yards was :15.644 over a fast track for a speed index of 82. DRT Dynasty went off at 20-1 odds and paid $43 to win, $19.40 to place and $9.20 to show. With Valiant Temptress running second at 7-1 odds, the $2 exacta was worth a healthy $632.20. The 3-7-5 trifecta with the favorite, Carson City Train, in third paid $539.90.
DRT Dynasty earned $12,880 from the $26,000 purse for 3-year-olds-and-older that started for a claiming price of $10,000 or less in 2020-2021. Racing for owner Tailored Gold Stables of Chanhassen, Minn., and trainer Jerry Livingston, DRT Dynasty improved her record to 26 starts, six wins, two seconds and three thirds for $60,690 in her lifetime bankroll. She was bred in Texas by Melissa Miller.
