The Tabulator still undefeated after Iroquois S. (G3) win

Dialed In's brilliant 2-year-old colt the Tabulator won his third straight start on Saturday with a gallant victory in the $150,000 Iroquois S. (G3) at Churchill Downs.

The Tabulator is one of Dialed In's six stakes winners this year. The Darby Dan stallion ranks in the top five on the Second-Crop sire list by progeny earnings, stakes winners and stakes horses.

The Tabulator got an excellent trip under Jose Valdivia, Jr. in the Iroquois. He broke very alertly from post nine and was just behind Smart Remark for the first six furlongs before forging to the lead. Full of energy in the stretch, he handily held off Hollywood Star by three-quarters of a length for the victory.

“He’s still young as we know but now he’s proven around two turns,” said Valdivia. “We’ve always thought highly of him and he’s always acted like a nice horse from the beginning. We won impressively in the debut (by nine lengths), but (trainer) Larry (Rivelli) couldn’t get an allowance race to go at Arlington so he shipped to Prairie Meadows ($65,000 Prairie Gold Juvenile S.). Today, when we turned for home in front he still looked around a little bit in the stretch but I’m just glad we were able to get there. With this being the kickoff for the ‘Road to the Kentucky Derby’ and a Breeders’ Cup ‘Win and You’re In’, it’s very exciting to have a horse of this quality.” 

The Iroquois victory guarantees The Tabulator a spot in the starting gate for the Nov. 4 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) at Del Mar, and earned him 10 points towards a starting spot in the 2018 Kentucky Derby.

The Tabulator, perfect in three starts, is owned by Carolyn Wilson, who purchased the dark bay colt for $460,000 at the OBS March Select 2-year-old sale. He was bred in Kentucky by Extern Developments, Ltd.
