08/18/18 | Cincinnati, OH – Dare To Dream Stable’s homebred He’s No Bull, making only his second start, dominated a field of maidens by 10 lengths at Belterra Park in race 3. The gelded bay son of Haynesfield was coming off his maiden voyage where he broke a little slow in a five furlong dash and left himself a bit too much to do in the stretch while making a bit of a run. That was enough to show that added ground would benefit him in his next start. “The Bull” took the experience from his first race and move forward off that in a big way. This time when the starting gate sprung open, He’s No Bull broke very sharply and immediately went up right off the pacemaker in a stalking position sitting in 2nd. Jockey Dean Sarvis was sitting comfortably on him through an opening quarter of 23.22 on the deep Belterra Park dirt surface. Sarvis maintained that position through a half mile, still sitting in 2nd while only 1 1/2 lengths off the leader Imbeingfollowed. When they turned for home and hit the top of the stretch, Sarvis took aim on Imbeingfollowed. The veteran reinsman went to his vigorous left hand asking He’s No Bull for some more run. “The Bull” responded in a big way and went right by that long time leader while exploding through the stretch. He took full command of the race inside the 1/8th pole, opening up with every stride. In the end it was a dominating victory with He’s No Bull crossing the line 10 lengths in front in a final time of 1:13.48.
Congratulations to the Dare To Dream Stable team for this impressive first victory from a foal out of their mare, Devout Diva. This was Diva’s second foal to hit the races and first winner. Her other foal, She’s A Fine Line, has hit the board in 5 of 8 races and is on the cusp of hopefully breaking her maiden soon as well. Congratulations to trainer Danny Werre and Charlena Schenk Werre for their hard work and terrific job training He’s No Bull. From their fantastic Ellada Farm to The Thoroughbred Center, they have been with He’s No Bull since birth. Thanks to Jockey Dean Sarvis who rode “The Bull” with such confidence.
