Mr. Bowling scores first career stakes victory in Dover Stakes

Wilmington, Del., October 8, 2011 — Brereton Jones’ Mr. Bowling notched his first career stakes victory in the $75,000 Dover Stakes at Delaware Park today.

With Jose Caraballo aboard, the 2-year-old son of Istan won by 7 1/4-lengths and returned $4.00 as the favorite in the field of five. The Kentucky-bred conditioned by J. Larry Jones covered the mile-and-seventy yards in 1:42.77 over a fast main track.

Doe, the only filly in the field with Sarah Rook, and Runnin Bull, with Edin Riveria, finished in a dead heat for second.

In his previous outing, Mr. Bowling broke his maiden at Delaware Park. He sports a career record of two wins from three starts with earnings of $95,580.
