Ringy Dingy came from last with three furlongs to run to roll to a 6 ¼-length victory in Friday’s $100,000 White Clay Creek S. at Delaware Park.
The 2-year-old daughter of Dialed In was making her stakes debut following a Sept. 17 maiden win at Aqueduct. With 15 stakes horses this year, led by Grade 1 winner Defunded, Dialed In is the leading sire of his generation. Darby Dan recently announced his 2024 fee at $15,000 stands and nurses.
After getting pinched back at the start, Ringy Dingy found herself well behind the field going into the first turn. She continued to gallop along entering the final bend, when she swiftly gained ground as the field neared the stretch. She found an opening along the rail at the top of the lane and shot through and quickly pulled clear to win with ease.
“It was not our game plan,” winning rider Katie Davis said of the trip. “It kind of fell out of the clouds because of the break when she got squeezed out of there. But we did not panic. I just let her get her feet. When we hit the backside, they drew away from us a little bit. I gathered her, dropped my hands at the half-mile pole and got my position. The rail opening made it a perfect trip, and from there, we were home.”
Ringy Dingy is now two-for-three lifetime and has earned $113,700 for owners Peter Callahan and James McDonald. A $200,000 Fasig-Tipton October Yearlings buy in 2022, the chestnut filly was bred by Athens Woods LLC.
