Drill pre-entered for Delta Jackpot

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 $5,500.


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.

id like to see jake mo break from the gate well again.. he needs a redemption race! he's a great horse, just a rough last 2 starts
I'm the main man when it comes to workouts. Woody Stephens when asked about workouts, said: "they're everything. A horse will usually run back to its work"
Times of workouts are far less important than how the horse does them, or the frequency... I think over the long run the amount of horses you don't bet on but were working well are offset by the visa versa. I think it probably generally all evens out.
I would love to be able to be private clocker, but on the other hand I think the times of workouts are remarkably accurate.
It is astounding the way the really naive accept the dogma without EVER having the experience to get up at 4:30 and actually SEE, first hand what goes on...Dr. Qurin in his great books on the factors involved made a big notion about NOT knowing what or why a workout is evaluated the way it is unless viewed in person. Having done so often, I completely agree with his assertion
Your not that naive are you? That BC Juvenile was a CLASSIC study of a "NO FACTOR" race. Its enough racing racing activity to keep his current condition sharp, but gives the colt a freshener at the same time. Until Baffert decides what "spot" is best. It appears that the Million dollar Delta Jackpot is the "SPOT". If Baffert breezes the colt at Delta downs right before the race, you can then guarantee the Delta Jackpot is the spot.
those stellare morning moves did not translate to a great run last Saturday, why do you think they will in the upcoming move either?
I put Drill in virtual stable after the BC Juvenile. Bafferts slant of working this colt at 7 furlongs 3 times and winning a grade one at 7 furlongs, made me feel Baffert wanted the colt going 7.5 or 8 furlongs. If Baffert works the colt at Delta downs 2-5 days before the Million dollar race, then this BIG graded pot makes sense to qualify or lock him in for the Derby. WAY TOO early to be speaking seriously about the Derby. This colt finished 2nd in the Norfolk so he belongs with the elite of the Juveniles though. Read mdracing69's comment about his 9-25-11 7 furlong work.
MichaelPavelick · Anybody at the "Nation" real familiar with SA workouts? A 2 year old like Drill "drilling" this 7 furlong move. How good is it? 09/25/2011 SA 7F 1:23.20 Dirt Fast H · mdracing69 · The clocker at Today's Racing Digest said the Sept 25 work was the best he had ever seen for a juvenile. He gave stablemate Castaway a ten length head start and made up ground in the blink of an eye. As for Drill's seven panel move on Oct 25, he started about seven lengths behind Star Presence. He closed the gap and was all square on the line. They galloped out another furlong as a team and Drill had something in reserve. The work was deemed Excellent. Once again Drill worked with Star Presence on Oct 31 and swept past to finish the 5f move a length in fron
@Michael Pavelick Drill is a good horse but i just don't see him as one of the top 3 year olds next year... I don't even think he will even be a contender for the 2012 derby... he reminds me of The Factor in a way
I hope No Spin gives it a go here!
Alonso12929, I actually misread that article. I thought it was a $500,000 purse. Thanks. I put Drill in my virtual stable after the BC Juvenile.
I think Drill is going to be a excellent 3 year old. I just hope they dont over do it with him.
Now I hear CC is done for the year. I was hoping to see him run in one more race.
Creative Cause will not race till next year, he will get some rest. Who knows, maybe Baffert will try to run Drill in the Jackpot & Cash Call Fut.
Drill is staying on the east coast. If he was coming back to California he would have to go against Creative Cause again in the Hollywood G1 Futurity. Probably a better chance for him to win and get some more dirt track experience.
Million dollar purse... A win and ur in the 2012 derby my friend
Why a grade 3 when he has won a grade 1 already?
