Dullahan Looks To Turn Tables On ‘Another’
“Our horse showed up as we knew he would in the Derby,” noted Crawford, an Iowa-based attorney and lifelong horse enthusiast who also campaigned grade I winner and stallion Paddy O’Prado . “When you put a horse out on the track in a 20-horse field, crazy things can happen that keep you from being able to win the race. It’s pretty simple.”
Dullahan will be one of the noted contenders seeking to deprive I’ll Have Another of the Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) June 9 at Belmont Park, and Crawford is anxious for the rematch and a chance for vindication for his charge, who is owned by 20-24 partners, many of them friends of Crawford’s. Having skipped the Preakness Stakes (gr. I), Dullahan figures to represent a major threat along with fellow Derby runner Union Rags, who also passed the second leg of the Triple Crown.
