Winner of the Grade III El Camino Derby earlier in the year, Dice Flavor (3c Scat Daddy x Afleet Summer, by Afleet) hit top form again on Saturday to score a tenacious win in the Grade II La Jolla Handicap at Del Mar.
Prepared by Patrick Gallagher, Dice Flavor settled back in the field and charged to the line late to win the 1 and 1/16th mile event by half a length.
A $100,000 purchase as a two year-old, Dice Flavor has the overall record of three wins and three placings from nine starts with prizemoney in excess of $274,000.
He is a half-brother to Grade III Swift Warrior and stakes-winner Carolina Sky being from good producer Afleet Summer.
Dice Flavor is one of 17 stakes-winners for top class young sire Scat Daddy, who goes from strength to strength.
