DARK DESERT WINE won for the third time in as many starts this year battling to the wire to win a six-furlong allowance. The 4-year-old filly by DAAHER disputed the pace from the start in this six-furlong sprint at Lone Star Park. She battled with the runner-up through the length of the stretch and came out on top by a head. In her last start, DARK DESERT WINE led the entire way drawing off through the stretch to win by nine lengths. Out of Lady Countdown, by Captain Countdown, she was a winner in her juvenile season taking a Maiden Special Weight by nearly three lengths.
