3YO DEER DOG Gets Back-to-Back Scores

Coming off a maiden victory at Gulfstream in his final start of 2014, DEER DOG kicked off his 2015 campaign with another front-running effort to win this allowance at Tampa Bay by a game neck. Vying for the lead in this six-furlong test, the 3-year-old colt by DAAHER pulled ahead for a length lead, then had to dig in down the stretch to secure the victory. In his maiden tally, the Jack P. Reisz homebred out of War Belle, by Lord At War (Arg), drew off through the stretch to win by 6 1/4 lengths in December for regular trainer William Bradley.
