ROMANS OFF TO THE RACES FRIDAY EVENING

We thought it might be a good time to catch up with Dullahan before he catches up to us.  Here is the Bluegrass winner walking the shed row at Churchill Downs one morning during Kentucky Derby week. (Photo: Hahn)
Tune in to “Off to the Races” on ESPN AM 950 (WXGI) in Richmond Friday evening as Nick Hahn and “Derby” Bill Watson interview trainer Dale Romans.  Romans will saddle Dullahan, third place finisher in the Kentucky Derby and leading contender to thwart the Triple Crown bid of I’ll Have Another in the Belmont Stakes.  “Off to the Races” airs Friday evenings at 6:00 pm in Richmond and on the web at www.espn950am.com.  Also on Friday’s show, we will recap the significance of the Preakness day racing action at Pimlico last weekend and preview two three year old turf races to be run Memorial Day weekend.  Romans has the favorite in the $125,000 Arlington Classic, Silver Max and Shackleford in the Metropolitan Mile.   

Romans conditioned Paddy O’Prado to two wins at Colonial Downs in 2010 and attended both races.  Here is watches Kent Desormeaux guide the Colonial Turf Cup winner into the winner’s circle with owner Jerry Crawford of Donegal Racing.
