2YO DARK DESERT WINE Pulls Away to Take Maiden Special Weight

Runner-up in her last Maiden Special Weight try, DARK DESERT WINE got the job done in this one drawing clear to win by 2 3/4 lengths. The 2-year-old filly by DAAHER dueled for the lead with two others after breaking from post two, then pulled away from her rivals through the stretch to win going 5 1/2 furlongs at Retama Park. She was bred by Charles E. Smith and Terry L. Propps out of Lady Countdown, by Captain Countdown.
