Southern California shipper Dice Flavor, whose only four starts had been on grass for trainer Paddy Gallagher, burst away from the field past mid-stretch to easily win the $200,000 El Camino Real Derby (gr. III) in an upset at Golden Gate Fields Feb. 16.
The victory in Northern California's most important race for 3-year-olds completed quite a day for breeders Paget Bloodstock, Nearctic Bloodstock, and Carhue Investments. They also bred Dice Flavor's half brother, Swift Warrior, a son of First Samurai who captured the $150,000 Tampa Bay Stakes (gr. IIIT) in Florida on turf a few hours earlier. Both horses are out of the Afleet mare Afleet Summer.
