Danalake tops Blue Hen Stakes
Wilmington, Del., September 27, 2012 —Sheldon Nitenson’s Danalake, a winner of her last two races, tops the $75,000 Blue Hen Stakes at Delaware Park this Saturday. Last year, locally-based Grace Hall used the mile-and-70-yard test for 2-year-old fillies as a prep for her second-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.
In her most recent, Danalake posted a 3¾-length score in the one-mile $50,000 Our Mims Stakes at Delaware Park on August 22. Previously, the daughter of Friends Lake posted a two-length triumph to break her maiden going five furlongs at Delaware Park on July 4. The Kentucky-bred conditioned by Todd Pletcher sports a career record of two wins and a second from three starts, with earnings of $58,800.
