Dazzlingdominika Provides Walden First Career Win As Trainer At Churchill

Ready Made Racing’s Dazzlingdominika gamely battled to victory Friday at Churchill Downs and provided young trainer Will Walden his first career win.

Walden is the son of former trainer Elliott Walden, who is president and CEO of WinStar Farm in Versailles, Kentucky. He has about a dozen horses in training, but will not have any for WinStar.

A 2-year-old Ghostzapper filly, ridden by Gerardo Corrales, Dazzlingdominika led from the gate but was collared entering the stretch by Ski Hope. She knuckled down when called upon, regained her advantage nearing the eighth pole, and edged away before crossing the finish line one-length clear of runner-up Vicki Rose.

Janet Is Ready, the 11-10 favorite, was third in the field of seven.

Rebounding from a seventh-place finish in her career debut April 29 at Keeneland, Dazzlingdominika covered five furlongs in :58.73 to take the maiden special race and provide her trainer the milestone. She returned $17.

Ready Made Racing paid $30,000 for Dazzlingdominika, who is out of the Trappe Shot mare Trappingsofsilver, at the 2021 Keeneland September yearling sale where she was offered by Blandford Stud.
