Artie Schiller got his second stakes winner in a week on Saturday when Dorsett rallied from last to win the $200,000 Mystic Lake Derby at Canterbury Park. An international sire, Artie Schiller's Cakal Carlos was a Grade 1 winner in Turkey last week.
With Lori Keith in the irons, the 3-year-old colt settled near the back of the eight-horse field, then began to pick off horses on the far turn of the one-mile turf race. The 6-5 wagering favorite overtook Red Zeus and Coastal
Breeze in mid stretch, drawing off to win by three lengths in a final time of 1:35.69.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity,” Keith said. “The trainer (Michael Stidham) told me to let him find his feet, that was about it. I was pretty confident throughout. I had a lot of horse at every given stage. I felt like all I had to do was push the button and that was the case.”
Owned by Terry Hamilton, Dorsett has now won three of eight starts and $194,670 in purses. The colt is a half-brother to SunRay Park H. winner Justanoldsong.
