New American DALIKA digs deep for win at Churchill

DALIKA by Pastorius threw her name in the ring for better tasks to come in the undercard of the G2 Stephen Foster at Churchill Downs yesterday. The daughter of DRAWN TO RUN, who had moved across the big pond following a second place at Listed level last fall at Chantilly, recorded her first full point at her second time out in the US with a gutsy win by a head in a $97,000 allowance race over 1800 m. Miguel Mena was aboard the three-year-old, who granted owners Bal Mar Equine, LLC and trainer Albert Stall a trip to the winners circle.
