Gourmet Dinner Takes Delta Jackpot

A bay Trippi colt owned by Our Sugar Bear Stable, Gourmet Dinner won the Affirmed and Dr. Fager divisions of the Florida Stallion series at Calder before a runner-up finish in the In Reality division as the 3-to-5 favorite on October 16 in his previous start.


Gourmet Dinner showed he was back on his game approaching the stretch in the Delta Jackpot. He surged to the lead after a sweeping bid and shook free to prevail by 2 1/4 lengths at 20-to-1 odds.
