Mike Smith took Royal Delta, out to a quick early lead and by the time they hit the backstretch this race was already over as she had grabbed a commanding 8 length to ultimately go on and win by 10 3/4 lengths today’s $750,000, GI Delaware Hcp,at 1 1/4 mile, for the older gals over a hot and sticky Delaware Park main!
Yes, race fans, the older ladies division (the most consistent division this year) is putting on a truly Epic tussle this Saturday at Delaware Park in the GII, $750,000, Delaware Handicap with Blind Luck and Havre de Grace (both seen here) are squaring off against one another for the 6th time. Last year’s champ, Life at Ten is also joining in this grudge match too!
Other Probables are,
Payton D’oro, Repreive, Tiz Miz Sue, Sarah’s Song, and Sweet N Sour Nina!
It’s also a Breeders’ Cup Challenge race, as well!
So we look forward to this match-up with great interest as it may be a preview of the B/C Ladies Classic race in Nov.!
