PAVED BECOMES THE FIRST FILLY TO WIN PRESTIGIOUS EL CAMINO REAL DERBY

Berkeley, Calif. (Feb. 17, 2017) Under the expert guidance of jockey Drayden Van Dyke, Paved became the first filly to win the prestigious El Camino Real Derby, one of the most notable horse races in Northern California. The El Camino Real Derby, a restricted 3-year-old race, awarded 10 Kentucky Derby points to the winner. Paved is the only filly in the country to hold Kentucky Derby points at this point in time.

"She’s just a Cadillac," said Van Dyke. "She looked around a little bit towards the end. I think there is more left in there, too. She is very talented."
