=== Romans' assistant to decide Dullahan's Breeders' Cup race ===
Arcadia, CA (Sports Network) - The small woman always at trainer Dale Romans'
side will have the responsibility of deciding which Breeders' Cup race
Dullahan should start.
Tammy Fox, the longtime companion and assistant to Romans, is the one who
picks the race the 3-year-old colt will enter for the 29th World Championships
at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.
Dullahan will have a workout at Santa Anita this Saturday on the turf course
and follow with a work on the main track next week.
"Whichever one I decide that he likes the best, that's the one we're going to
go with, so I hope I pick the right one," Fox said.
Fox, a former jockey, will decide between starting the Pacific Classic champ
in the $3 million Turf at 1 1/2-miles or the $5 million Classic at 1 1/4-
miles on dirt. The colt has never won on either surface, just synthetic.
In his last start, Dullahan was a disappointing fifth in the Jamaica Handicap
at Belmont Park on grass. Owned by Donegal Racing, he was the 17-10 favorite
in the seven-horse field.
Along with the Pacific Classic, Dullahan captured the Blue Grass Stakes and
Breeders Futurity on synthetic surfaces.
In 13 career starts Dullahan has earnings of $1,714,091.
