Dynamic Holiday captures Tropical Park Oaks
Newly-turned three-year-old fillies were in action over the Calder turf on Saturday in the $65,000 Tropical Park Oaks.
The winner there was George Strawbridge's homebred DYNAMIC HOLIDAY (Harlan's Holiday), who held on by a nose under Julien Leparoux after making the lead in midstretch. Trained by Graham Motion, Dynamic Holiday covered 1 1/16 miles on the good ground in 1:43 4/5.
This marked the first turf win in three attempts for the bay, who previously ran second and seventh in maiden turf events at Saratoga and Belmont, respectively. She garnered her first career win, also in a photo-finish, over the Keeneland Polytrack on October 22.
Her bankroll rose to $82,575 from a mark of 5-2-2-0 with this victory.
