Creative Cause Aims at Del Mar Futurity

Creative Cause and Rafael Bejarano win the Best Pal Stakes(GII)at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, CA. August 06, 2011

Creative Cause and I’ll Have Another, the 1-2 finishers in Sunday’s Best Pal Stakes, have recovered well since the race and are being pointed to the $250,000, Grade I Del Mar Futurity on closing day, September 7.


Mike Harrington said that Creative Cause, a 1 ¾-length winner in 1:15.62 for 6 ½ furlongs – the fastest running of the race since Del Mar switched to Polytrack in 2007 – came out of the race “great.”


Creative Cause, who was given an ultra-impressive 98 Beyer Speed Figure off his debut win at Hollywood Park, was accorded an 88 for the Best Pal, Harrington said.


“We were a little disappointed because we thought that was a pretty fast race,” Harrington said. “But we got the money and that’s what counts.”


Doug O’Neill-trained I’ll Have Another also exited the race well.


“We’re pretty happy with the race he ran,” said O’Neill assistant Leandro Mora.  “But we’re going to have to come up with a different plan if that winner keeps running the way he did.”


Another Futurity candidate, Hollywood Juvenile winner Majestic City, worked five furlongs on Monday in 1:01.60 for trainer Peter Miller.
