Iotapa, had to turn in a very hard fought stretch effort over a very game Broken Sword in the $300,000, GI Clement L. Hirsch Stakes, for 3yo and up F/M’s, going 1 1/16 mile over the Del Mar main all-weather track for the 1/2 length, tough as nails win!
2nd –Broken Sword – off that 1/2 length
3rd – Parranda – back 2 1/4 more lengths
4th – Fiftyshadesofhay – back 1 length further!
Iotapa, also just filled one of the gates for this year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff with this win!
