Drill and Jake Mo, who ran in separate Breeders’ Cup races last
weekend, were among 17 horses pre-entered Tuesday for the Grade 3, $1
million Delta Downs Jackpot. The 1 1/16-mile race for 2-year-olds will
be run in Vinton, La., on Nov. 19. Final entries will be taken Nov. 16.
Delta also took pre-entries Tuesday for the Grade 3, $500,000 Delta
Downs Princess, a one-mile race for 2-year-old fillies on the Jackpot
card. There were 16 pre-entered, including Candrea, a Breeders’ Cup alum
and the runner-up in the Grade 1 Oak Leaf; Citizen Advocate, a multiple
stakes winner who took the local prep; Now I Know, an undefeated stakes
winner; and Culotte, who was a supplemental nominee at a cost of
Drill, winner of the Grade 1 Del Mar Futurity, was 10th in the $2
million BC Juvenile on Saturday. Jake Mo ran in the BC Juvenile Sprint
last Friday and was fifth. Allen Milligan, who trains Jake Mo, said the
horse emerged from the race full of himself and the decision to
pre-enter the horse in the Jackpot keeps the race options open. The
pre-entry fee was $1,000.
