J. Pletcher, P. Wetterman and J. Scaturchio’s DUBLEO (Southern Halo) took
the lead turning for home and bravely held off a strong challenge from Tadreeb
(Theatrical [Ire]) en route to a tally in the $60,000
Dave Feldman S. at
Gulfstream Park on Sunday. The Todd Pletcher trainee sat in second early as Lord
Robyn (Robyn Dancer) led the field through brisk splits of :24 1/5, :46 2/5 and
1:09 for the initial six furlongs. As the pair turned for home, Dubleo put that
one away easily and continued on home beneath John Velazquez, completing the 1 1/16
firm turf miles in 1:40 3/5. The dark bay sophomore was favored at 8-5 and gave
back $5.40, $3.20 and $2.40 while topping $1 exotics of $8.10 (exacta), $26.20
(trifecta) and $125.70 (10-11-4-6 superfecta).

Tadreeb sat in fourth early, moved into contention turning for home and fell
just short at 5-2. The bay was good for $3.80 and $2.60. Crown Point (Honor
Grades) closed from off the pace to gain the show at 5-1, worth $3.20. Champagne
Brunch (Robyn Dancer) completed the superfecta at 29-1.

Lord Robyn was next and trailed by Win Me Over (Friendly Lover), Majestic J C
E (The Silver Move), Initially (Suave Prospect), Elusive Thunder (Thunder Gulch)
and Safely Run (Safely’s Mark). Giant Wrecker (Giant’s Causeway) and Cherokee
Chase (Rizzi) were withdrawn.  

Dubleo moved his mark to 10-7-1-1 with earnings of $396,899. The colt
captured the Generous S. (G3) in his latest run, and previously annexed the
Summer S. (Can-G2), Continental Mile S. and Chenery S.

Bred in the Bluegrass State by Anzac LLC, the winner was purchased at the
2003 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Yearling Sale for $90,000. He is the first
stakes winner produced from Secret Red (Secretariat), and has an unnamed
two-year-old half-sister by Storm Creek.
