She’s Not Bluffing wins at Belmont Park!

06/09/19 | Elmont, NY – Dare To Dream Stable’s She’s Not Bluffing finally put it all together and broke her maiden in dominant fashion winning by a geared down 5 1/4 lengths against her 6 overmatched rivals. She’s Not Bluffing was being wheeled back in just 7 days after trying the grass going long in which she had the lead but tired as the 1 1/16th distance just did not suit her. The bay daughter of Verrazano was getting back on dirt and sprinting which looked to be her preferred distance and surface. With jockey Luis Saez aboard, Bluffing broke alertly and assumed a forward position tracking the leaders but always close. Saez hitched up to the front runners as they approached the 3/8th’s pole, and then Bluffing poked her head in front as they turned for home. At that point, Saez just gave Bluffing a tap on the shoulder and it was time to say bye bye to the field. She’s Not Bluffing opened up with each and every stride and by the time they hit deep stretch it was a widening 5 length lead with Bluffing being geared down by Saez. They crossed the wire in a final time of 1:11.53 with the official winning margin of 5 1/4 lengths. Bluffing has now earned $28,855 in her brief 5 race career which also includes a 3rd place finish along with some tough luck trips in a few other races.

Congratulations to all our great Dare To Dream Stable partners on this well deserved victory. Kudos to Robert Falcone Jr. who won his first race for our stable since joining the team toward the end of last year. Robert has done a great job with both horses he’s currently training for Dare To Dream and we expect many more victory’s in the future. Finally to top jockey Luis Saez who rode Bluffing like he knew he was on the best horse. Luis showed why he is considered one of the top jockeys out east and when he’s piloting your horse it gives everybody confidence.
