Dullahan, with big strides down the center of the racetrack, ran down champion Hansen in the late stages to win the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes by 1 1/4 lengths April 14 at Keeneland. Kent Desormeaux guided the son of Even the Score for trainer Dale Romans. He is owned by Donegal Racing.

The time of 1:47.94 for 1 1/8 miles was a new stakes record on the Keeneland Polytrack. When last seen at Keeneland, Dullahan won the Breeders' Futurity last fall, and his brilliant run in the Blue Grass was not all that different than that come-from-behind victory. The chestnut colt was near the back of the field for much of the way while saving ground under Desormeaux, angled out near the quarter-pole, and charged through the center of stretch to collar Hansen, who had set the pace from the outset.
