Ballybrit Stable’s Dynatail shipped to Penn National in 2017 and captured the Penn Oaks in her only local outing-until the Susquehanna, which she won by two lengths over Enchanted Ghost in 1:46.12 for 1 1/16 miles on a turf course rating yielding.
Trained by Michael Dini and ridden by Luis Saez, the 5-year-old Hightail mare rebounded from a fifth-place finish in the Grade 3 Gallorette Stakes at Pimlico Race Course. She has been based at Monmouth after wintering in Florida.
It marked the second consecutive race in which Enchanted Ghost encountered trouble. She stumbled at the start in the Dahlia Stakes-first leg of the MATCH Series-at Laurel, and in the Susquehanna encountered traffic trouble as the field bunched up entering the stretch. Despite that, she is tied with Dynatail and Secret Message at the top of the divisional standings.
