2013 GI Delaware Hcp – Probables with Free Past Performances

Royal Delta - wins her 2013 debut in the GIII Sabin Stakes at Gulfstream Park!
Royal Delta – winning her 2013 seasonal debut in the GIII Sabin Stakes at Gulfstream Park! earlier this year

The 2013 GI Delcap with a purse $750,000, for 4yo and up F/M’s, at 1 1/4 mile is just around the corner. So, below we’ve spotted some likely runners for this DelPark premiere thoroughbred event each summer season here!

Free Past Performances,

Royal Delta – 2012 Older Female HOY and 2012 Breeders Cup Ladies Classic winner made the trip to Dubai again this year for another shot at the $10,000,000 Dubai World Cup title. She came home empty handed again after leading that contest into the far turn that faltered back to a 10th place finish.

She returned to North American racing last out in the GII Fleur de Lis Handicap at Churchill last month with an unusual 5 length lose to Funny Proposition.

My Miss Aurelia – winner of the 2012 GI Cotillion and 3rd in the GIII Azeri Stakes last out. Her appearance here would be logical one for a former HOY filly!

Tiz Miz Sue – winner of the GIII Azeri Stakes and GI Ogden Philips Hcp last out this year. She is a patented late closer who gave Royal Delta all she could handle in last year’s GI Delcap as she was grinding away at Royal Delta lead in deep stretch here last year only to come up short by just a shrinking neck.

Dance Card – winner of the GI Gazelle Hcp last out. That win however was way back on Nov 24th last year at Aqueduct so  a long layoff for this GI winner here on Saturday!

Bryan’s Jewel – winner of the GIII Obeah Stakes (local prep for this race) last out! this one does have graded experience but is more of mid-atlantic favor in this race.

Other Possible runners are – She’s All In, And Why Not, Summer Applause, Authenticity and Funny Proposition.

Although not a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Ladies Classic contest the winner here will certainly be the one to beat on Nov 1st out at Santa Anita again this fall!
