DANCE PANTS Gets Maiden Victory in Third Start at Tampa

Making his second start on turf, DANCE PANTS took the lead in midstretch and pulled away to win this one mile Maiden test by 1 3/4 lengths. The first-crop 3-year-old colt by TAMARKUZ stalked the pace setters between rivals down the backstretch. DANCE PANTS moved up to challenge the leader on the far turn, dueled with that one until midstretch, then won that hard-fought battle and was first to the wire. The $160,000 2YO purchase bred by Dermot Joyce is out of the Broken Vow mare, Confession, and races for Lael Stables.
