Making just his third start at the 870-yard distance, Big Dynasty led at every call en route to a three-quarter length victory in Saturday's $55,580 Remington Park Distance Championship (G1).

Big Dynasty covered 870 yards in :44.983 under jockey Noe Garcia. Robi Meche saddled the 5-year-old son of champion FDD Dynasty for owner Debbie Grimes of Waller, Texas.

Big Dynasty was bred in Texas by Michael S. Partin, and he was coming off of a third-place finish, 5 3/4 lengths behind winner O Donovan Rossa, in the 870-yard, $50,000 Pauls Valley Stakes (G2) on May 6. The gelding is out of Delightfully Tres, a homebred winning and stakes-placed daughter of 2001 champion 2-year-old colt Tres Seis. His second dam, the winning Shazoom mare Easy On Liberty, ran third in the '04 John Deere Ruidoso Juvenile Challenge Stakes  (G3) at Ruidoso Downs.

Big Dynasty was sent to post at odds of 11-1 and returned a $24.80 win mutuel. All told, Big Dynasty has won seven of 12 races -- including two of three at the 870 trip -- and the $32,046 winner's share of the purse from his first career stakes score increased his earnings to $208,639.

O Donovan Rossa, the 11-10 favorite, finished second.
