LEXINGTON, Ky. - Dullahan stamped himself as one of the favorites for the 138th Kentucky Derby and put himself in the record books by rolling past favored Hansen to win the 88th running of the Grade 1, $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes on a warm Saturday afternoon at Keeneland.

With Kent Desormeaux aboard for the Donegal Racing partnership and trainer Dale Romans, Dullahan prevailed by 1 1/4 lengths over front-running Hansen, returning $8.40 as the second choice in a field of 13 3-year-olds.
