Paasch Settles in at Keeneland; Crowned Dancer Works

(from track report)
Trainer Christopher Paasch is a new resident of Lexington, Ky.
Paasch and his partners have recently purchased a tract of the old 505 Farm and have renamed it Victory Haven Training Center.

Paasch is preparing Rod and Loraine Rodriguez's Crowned Dancer for the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) on April 12. The Tactical Advantage colt, third in the one-mile San Rafael (gr. II) at Santa Anita on March 1, breezed five furlongs Tuesday in 1:00 3/5 in company with Bossanova, who worked out six furlongs to the seven-eighths pole in 1:13.

Paasch recently moved his string to Kentucky from Southern California.

"It's great to be at Keeneland," he said. "I'm really looking forward to opening day."

Keeneland's April meeting begins Friday.
