Del Mar, CA (November 6, 2021) – Lieutenant Dan, the 5-year-old son of Grazen turned in a gallant effort to finish second in the $1,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint going five furlongs over the firm turf course at Del Mar.
Nick Alexander’s homebred gave his all, valiantly chasing the winner ever step. He finished just a length and one-quarter back at the wire and was three and one-half lengths clear of the rest of the field of world class sprinters.
Produced by the Indian Charlie mare, Excusabull, he is trained by Steve Miyadi. He has won or placed in sixteen of his seventeen career starts and he has earned $833,740.
