07/21/19 | Arlington Heights, IL – Dare To Dream Stable’s Senor Blanco capped off a terrific weekend for the stable by drawing off at the top of the stretch and easily dispatched his 6 rivals to cross the wire a comfortable 2 3/4 lengths to the good of his nearest competitor in winning for the 7th time in his career. Senor Blanco was coming off a pretty good 3rd place effort in his first race off the claim for Dare To Dream. This time around Senor Blanco was much sharper and ran like we expected him to when we claimed him in early June. Once again jockey Mitchell Murrill was aboard Senor Blanco and was told to keep him close before making his move when called upon. Senor Blanco broke sharply and briefly went to the lead before Murrill allowed long shot Campioni to dictate the pace while he sat off that leader on the backside. Murrill patiently stayed within one length down the backside just biding his time. When they approached the 7/16th’s, Murrill and Senor Blanco made a 2 wide move and cruised past Campioni with 3/8th’s of a mile remaining. He then kicked clear and held sway through the stretch under mild urging to win by 2 3/4 lengths while never really being challenged. Senor Blanco has now amassed $163,704 in his 27 race career. Along with his 7 wins, he also has 2 second place finishes and 8 3rd place finishes. This hard knocking Chosen Deputy Gelding gives you an honest effort just about every time he goes to post.
Congratulations to the Dare To Dream Stable Claiming partnership on this nice claim and victory! Special mention to Michael & Mary Lou Jassak & Martin O’Connor for their first win with Dare To Dream! It was a great training job by young gun Chris Davis and his trusty assistant Mynor Ortiz, as Senor Blanco was razor sharp for this effort. Finally to our go to rider Mitchell Murrill who provided us with 2 excellent rides and completing the weekend double with this nice win!
