Essence of Bubbles Louisiana Bound

Richard Ravin’s Essence of Bubbles, who made the pace in last Saturday’s Grade III Arlington-Washington Lassie before grudgingly giving way by a half-length to Frank Fletcher’s Rocket Twentyone in the late stages, will be headed down to Cajun Country for  her next trip to the post, trainer Larry Rivelli indicated earlier this week.

 

“We’ll probably send her down to Delta Downs for her next start,” said Rivelli, speaking of the Louisiana track located in the western portion of the state.  “There’s a stakes race down there for her in about six or eight weeks.”

 

Essence of Bubbles would be a prime candidate for the Grade III Delta Downs Princess Stakes for 2-year-old fillies on Delta Downs Jackpot Day Nov. 19.

 

“She should have won the Lassie but she got too wound up in the paddock and left some of her race there,” said Rivelli, who only got the juvenile filly in his barn in the days before the Lassie.  “Now that I know that characteristic about her, we will be able to address that issue.”
