Tumble Dust (4m Crazed-Affinity-Victory Dream) easily won today's 2014 Danish Derby in Copenhagen worth 600,000kr (US$106,183) to the winner. Bjorn Goop teamed Tumble Dust to his third consecutive win for trainer Tomas Malmqvist and owner Stall Easy KB.  The winner recorded his seventh career victory in 23 starts, now for earnings of 2,491,245kr (US$440,881). Tumble Dust scored over 3000 meters autostart (1-7/8 miles, three laps around the 1000 meter oval) in 1.14.7kr despite the sloppy racetrack dulled by day-long rains that delayed the start of the racing program. His time was the fastest Derby winner ever despite the off-track conditions. Wagering favorite Tumble Dust (odds 1.7/1) scored from post four and took to the front in the first turn from T Rex and reinsman Lars Anvar Kolle, and then led throughout. Tano Bork (by Great Challenger) and Tango Vang (by Lindy Lane) were second and third. Bred and raised by Thomas Lind-Holm Washer and trained by Jagersro's Tomas Malmqvist, Tumble Dust prepped at Charlottenlund with a victory in a derby trial 14 days ago over 2500 meters. Prior to the trial he had been racing at the 1609 meter sprinter distance. In the final run Tumble Dust was almost alone on the field, and won easily by three lengths, while Tano Bork, who had been sitting in the third couple on the outside, ended well for second place for teamster Christian Lindhardt. Tumble Dust's next big task will be to qualify to start in the European Derby, which this year will be raced at Mauquenchy (FR). Tumble Dust gave trainer Malmqvist his second Danish Derby victory and it was the first time that Bjorn Goop won the Derby in Copenhagen.
