Description: Danza (KY) CH , C, foaled April 17, 2011 (Street Boss - Champagne Royale, by French Deputy) and jockey Joe Bravo sneaked through along the rail to capture the 1 1/8 miles $1 million Grade I Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park April 12, 2014. Bayern was on the front end and Thundergram was keeping pressure on that one. Danza got a dream trip along the rail stalking the pace in 3rd down the back stretch. As they rounded the far turn Thundergram ranged up and did battle with Bayern and Bayern stayed on as Danza swept through near the 1/4 pole to gain command. Tapiture gained ground on the outside and Ride On Curlin came widest of all. Danza opened up to win by 4 3/4 lengths, Ride On Curlin edged Bayern by a 1/2 length for 2nd. Tapiture was well back in 4th. Danza has a race record of 2-0-2 from 4 starts and has earned $666,428, the bulk of that coming from his recent victory. He also gained a starting position in the Kentucky Derby May 3rd at Churchill Downs by taking down the 100 points offered in the Road To The Derby Championship Series. Danza was bred by Liberation Farm & Brandywine Farm and he is owned by Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners. He was trained by Todd Pletcher. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
