Derby Win for Daddy Nose Best

Last year’s Champion First Season Sire Scat Daddy posted a new stakes-winner when Daddy Nose Best (3c Scat Daddy x Follow Your Bliss, by Thunder Gulch) captured the Grade III El Camino Real Derby at Golden Gate.

The Steve Asmussen trained colt staged a crowd pleasing duel with runner-up Lucky Chappy (3c High Chaparral x Germane, by Distant Relative), prevailing over that colt to win by a nose with Handsome Mike (3c Scat Daddy x Classic Strike, by Smart Strike) finishing third to give Coolmore sires a Black Type trifecta.

A $35,000 purchase from the Keeneland September Yearling Sale, Daddy Nose Best is raced by Bob and Cathy Zollars and has the overall record of three wins and three placings from nine starts with prizemoney of $233,623.

He is the sixth stakes-winner for Scat Daddy and is the second winner for Follow My Bliss, a daughter of Grade II winner Follow the Money.
