Dancingtothestars Catches A Jealous Woman at Del Mar

Ren-Mar Thoroughbreds’ Dancingtothestars, sixth in the Osunitas Stakes early this season, found competition more to her liking Thursday as she rallied in the stretch to win the featured $85,000 BOMA San Diego Purse in convincing style.

Outrun in the early stages of the one-mile grass course contest as A Jealous Woman set a blazing pace, Dancingtothestars responded to the urging of jockey Mario Gutierrez in the stretch to score by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:33.33 for the distance.

A Jealous Woman, with Patrick Valenzuela aboard, held on courageously to be second, a half-length in front of Hard to Resist, with Little Emily fourth in the field of older fillies and mares.

Miss Ellany, the 4-5 favorite ridden by Edwin Maldonado, faltered badly in the stretch after racing prominently, finishing sixth and last.

Dancingtothestars, providing trainer Doug O”Neill with his second victory of the afternoon, paid $10.40, $4.60 and $2.80 after scoring her fifth triumph in 16 starts. A Jealous Woman paid $5.60 and $4 and Hard to Resist returned $3.60 to show.

O’Neill, four times Del Mar’s champion trainer, was off to a slow start this summer, but won three races Wednesday and two more Thursday, his other victory recorded by Brilliant Melody in the third.

Julien Leparoux took sole possession of second place in the jockey standings with a triple, winning aboard Love Tale in the first, Brilliant Melody in the third and the promising two-year-old Diamond Bachelor who won the fifth impressively.

Rafael Bejarano had one winner Thursday and leads Leparoux 24-15.

Thursday’s attendance totaled 9,161.
