SHAKOPEE, MN—JULY 13, 2019—Despite facing proven horses at the distance, Ima Dashin Follie tried her hand at 110 yards for the first time and was the upset winner of the $15,500 Dash in a Flash Stakes at Canterbury on Saturday afternoon.
Jockey Doug Frink was aboard the 5-year-old mare for the victory; the duo covered the short distance in 6.941 and earned a 104 speed index. The final time broke the Canterbury Park track record of 6.968.
Ima Dashin Follie ($36.00) is trained by Bob Johnson. It was her first stakes win; she also had finished third in the Stablewood Farm Stakes at Los Alamitos in November and competed in both the Lone Star Distaff Challenge and the Canterbury Park Distaff Challenge last year.
Ima Dashin Follie was bred by Rodney Ruzsa in South Dakota, by IVORY JAMES and out of the First Down Dash mare Dimples Dash O Denim.
