Royal Delta - taking down today's GI DelCap at Delaware Park
Royal Delta – laying to waste the entire field in the GI DelCap at Delaware Park last out

2013 Breeders' Cup logoRoyal Delta, at 2/5, is the easy, no sweat winner of the GI DelCap last out at Del Park, will actually be cutting back in distance to 1 1/8 mile over the Saratoga main this Sunday in the $600,000, GI Personal Ensign Stakes, for 3yo and up Fillies and Mares.

Free Past Performances,

This contest will also offer the winner a free pass into this year’s Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic again, out at Santa Anita Park on the first Friday in Nov.

Authenticity, at 7/2, returned to her winning form last out here in the GIII Shuvee Stakes over just “good” going in a sluggish 1:52.1. She also won the GII La Troienne at Churchill 3 back and in between she finish 2nd to Tiz Miz Sue in the GI Ogden Philips so she is in top form right now and looks to be the main competition for Royal Delta here this Sunday.

On Fire Baby , at 5/1, is the winner of the GI Apple Blossom at Oaklawn this spring then finished just a “head’ behind Authenticity in the final jump of that same GII La Troienne last out.

She does have good early speed so look her to set the pace here on Sunday than try and hold off Authenticity and Royal Delta for the win.

Open Water, at 20/1, with a mixed bag of dirt, turf and poly starts in graded and non – graded company too offers a graded win on her resume this year but since then has faltered badly in her next 3 starts.

Centring, at 12/1, who was a good 3rd in the GI Ogden Phillips Hcp 2 back at Belmont came a distant 4th to Royal Delta, last out in that same GI Del Cap!

So, just 5 are coming out for maybe the best field of older gals yet assembled against Royal Delta this season in what looks to be a more competitive field for the 2012 Older Female HOY in the GI Personal Ensign Stakes this Sunday at Saratoga!
