2012 Illinois Derby Result: Done Talking Gets Up At The Wire

Done Talking came with a late grinding run to pas Morgan's Guerrilla in the shadow of the wire to win the 2012 Grade 3 Illinois Derby at Hawthorne Racecourse. Morgan's Guerrilla, after taking over the lead coming off the top of the turn, looked to be a certain winner but drifted out badly in the final furlongs, allowing Done Talking to get up for the victory. None of the horses finished up in an impressive fashion; after running the first six furlongs in 1:13.14, the leaders clocked a mile time of 1:39.85 and crawled home in 14.03 seconds over the final furlong.

Hakama finished third, while Saturday Launch rounded out the top four.

Done talking ran a solid 4th in last November's G2-Remsen Stakes but didn't run a step in the G3-Gotham in early March, losing by over 20 lengths. He bounced back in a big way today at Hawthorne.

Done Talking is a three-year-old son of Broken Vow out of a Dixieland Band mare (Dixie Talking), owned by Skeedattle Stable and trained by Hamilton Smith. The $300,000 prize for winning the Illinois Derby puts this colt squarely in the starting gate for the 2012 Kentucky Derby.
