• Beychok buys horse who won him $1-million

    POSTED Apr 20, 2012
    On January 28, 2012, Glorious Dancer's nose helped Michael Beychok win $1-million, and six weeks later Beychok spent $6,250 of that money to claim the Roman Dancer filly.

    Glorious Dancer will run for the first time in Beychok's colors when she goes postward in a conditioned claiming event on Sunday at Golden Gate Fields. Beychok was in Lexington on Friday, April 20, for TwinSpires day at Keeneland and said that he hopes to bring Glorious Dancer to Louisiana--where he lives and runs a direct mail business--to race and breed.

    Beychok has raced horses with partners before, but this is his first time as sole owner. He will not be in Northern California for the race but will certainly be monitoring the action from Baton Rouge via TwinSpires and TwinSpiresTV.

    Beychok qualified for the NHC after finishing third in the TwinSpires Online Handicapping Championship. He went into the final race of the two-day contest needing $11 to catch the leader, and he achieved that goal when Glorious Dancer's glorious schnoz landed him $82.0 to win and $3.80 to win the NHC and the $1-million first prize by $1.
