"Unbelievable" is how Phil Needham describes his association with Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) winner Dullahan and that colt's half brother, 2009 Kentucky Derby Presented By Yum! Brands (gr. I) winner Mine That Bird.
Dullahan, with big strides down the center of the racetrack, ran down champion Hansen in the late stages to win the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) April 14 at Keeneland.
Dullahan came from the rear of the field to nip Majestic City close home and win the $400,000 Dixiana Breeders' Futurity (gr. I) at Keeneland Oct. 8.
