Champ Pegasus Returns to Action

Five months after an unsuccessful trip to Dubai for the $5 million Dubai Sheema Classic, Champ Pegasus returns to face five rivals in Saturday’s $200,000, Grade II Del Mar Mile on the Jimmy Durante Turf Course.


Champ Pegasus, winner of the Del Mar Handicap, the Clement L. Hirsch at Oak Tree at Hollywood Park and second in the $3 million Breeders’ Cup Turf in a remarkable run in the fall of 2010, was 12th of 14, beaten nearly 30 lengths in the Dubai race.


“He did not run well at all and came back a little sore, but nothing serious, so we gave him a couple months off,” trainer Richard Mandella said. “He’s been training great. He’s known for going further than this (mile), but he’s fresh and I think this will be a good start for him.


“And he might be better at a mile than I know.  I’ve never tried it with him.”


Champ Pegasus has five wins and has been out of the money only twice in twelve starts with earnings of $1,018,520.  Champ Pegasus drew the No. 1 post position.  Others, from the rail out are Caracortado (Joe Talamo), Mr. Commons (Mike Smith), Calimonco (Victor Espinoza), Our Nautique (Garrett Gomez) and Victory Pete (Rafael Bejarano). Caracortado is also entered in Sunday’s Pat O’Brien Stakes.
