Dancing in Silks

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
J. Rosario
Trainer: 
C. Gaines
Owner: 
Ken Kinakin
Breeder: 
Ronald E. Jex

Ken Kinakin’s 4-year-old California-bred gelding Dancing in Silks was sent off the second longest chance on the board at 25-to-1 for trainer Carla Gaines in the field of nine in the Sprint and won a wild, thriller four-horse photo-finish with Joel Rosario aboard. Crown of Thorns finished a nose back in second and Cost of Freedom another head back in third in all-California-trained sweep of the top places.

A son of Black Minnaloushe, Dancing In Silks was posting his fourth straight victory going back to Del Mar in mid-August in his first start since shipping to Florida to finish fourth in the Sunshine Millions Sprint at Gulfstream Park early that year. However, the upset victory in the Sprint would prove to be the last for Dancing in Silks, who has finished no better than fourth in 12 starts over three years since then.
