BALTIMORE, MD – Hillside Equestrian Meadows’ Laki won a three-way photo finish at the wire in Saturday’s $200,000 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash Stakes (G3) at Pimlico.
Laki broke from post 4 under Horacio Karamanos at 7/1 odds and sat off the pace in fifth for the early going. Krsto Skye set the early tempo while the 4/5 favorite Landeskog gave closest chase through opening fractions of :22.96 and :45.03.
Still leading as the field straightened for home, Krsto Skye begrudgingly gave way inside the 1/8 pole. A four-wide Laki drove past while running between Nitrous and an even wider Eastern Bay.
A close examination of the win photo found that Laki was a nose past Eastern Bay, with Nitrous another nose behind in third. Trained by Damon Dilodovico, Laki completed the 6-furlong fast dirt sprint in 1:09.70.
Krsto Skye finished fourth ahead of Admiral Lynch and Landeskog, who completed the order of finish.
Midtowncharlybrown and Stan the Man were scratched.
Laki’s win was his first at the graded stakes level and improved his overall record to 28-10-6-5. The 7-year-old Maryland-bred Cuba gelding, already a multiple non-graded stakes winner, has now earned $683,662.
Laki returned $16.40 to win, $6 to place, and $4 to show. Eastern Bay brought back $5.20 to place and $4 to show, while Nitrous paid $4.60 to show.
