The Grade 3, $1 Million Delta Jackpot has the purse power to guarantee the winner a starting spot in the 2012 Kentucky Derby
, and headlining the Delta Downs showcase is Grade 1 winner Drill.
Bob Baffert’s Drill, a juvenile son of Lawyer Ron, finished a
non-threatening 8th as the even money favorite in his synthetic sprint
bow at Del Mar. He ran two more times at the seaside oval with a maiden
victory and a game tally in the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity.
