Paddys Day Takes Darley Sprint (G3) following Like Moulin Rouge DQ
It was a dramatic renewal of the Darley Sprint at Sam Houston Race Park on Saturday evening, March 19th, as #9 Like Moulin Rouge crossed the finish line first but was disqualified by the stewards from first to third for interference caused against #10 Quick Sand AA at the top of the stretch. #1 Paddys Day was promoted the winner, the 31st career victory and 23rd stakes win for the 11-year-old in 54 lifetime starts. Paddys Day would go on that evening to be named 2021 Darley Older Horse of the Year for the 4th time. Congratulations to each of the winning connections! Photo by Coady Photography.
