A few hours after Gunnevera took the Fountain of Youth S. (G2), Dialed In chalked up his second stakes blowout winner of the day when It's Your Nickel rolled to a 6 1/2-length victory in the $100,000 John Battaglia Memorial S. at Turfway Park.

The Battaglia serves as the main local prep for the March 25th Spiral S. (G3) on the road to the Kentucky Derby (G1). 

It's Your Nickel was making his first stakes start, but performed like a seasoned professional. Coming from near the back of the 11-horse field with three furlongs to run, weaving between horses and blowing by En Hanse with a furlong to run to get the 1 1/16-miles in 1:44.66.

Trained by Ken McPeek for Harold Lerner et al, It's Your Nickel upped his record to 3-0-0 in four starts, with earnings of $140,375. It's Your Nickel sold for $100,000 at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Summer Yearling sale.
