“Thoroughbred racing is a sport where everyone has their own opinion, but we heard a lot of fans in all age groups say Saturday was the greatest day in track history,” said Tampa Bay Downs Vice President and General Manager Peter Berube. What happened? It was Destiny! Destin broke a track record running 1:42.82 in the mile-and-a-sixteenth Grade II Stakes race edging out Outlook at the finish, earning 50 Derby points and a $210,000 purse locking up his spot in the 2016 Kentucky Derby.
