Bern Identity points to Delta Jackpot

Bern Identity will head to next month’s Grade 3, $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot after he easily won his two-turn debut Saturday night in the $200,000 Jean Lafitte. He was a three-length winner of the one-mile race that served as the local prep for the Jackpot, which is to be run Nov. 17.

Bern Identity ($3) was the 1-2 favorite in the Jean Lafitte on the strength of his summer form at Saratoga, where he won the Grade 2 Sanford then finished third to divisional heavy Shanghai Bobby in the Grade 2 Hopeful. Saturday night, Bern Identity broke with the field and settled in fourth along the rail as Manewal and Mr. Bandini’s Band dueled through fractions of 23.15 seconds  for the opening quarter and 47.95 for the half-mile.

Bern Identity angled off the rail down the backside, advanced four-wide around the final turn and went on to win by three lengths over Mylute.
