Mott Expresses Satisfaction With Royal Delta

One day after Royal Delta breezed four furlongs in a bullet 47.48 seconds over the Oklahoma training track, Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott expressed satisfaction with the way the 5-year-old mare is training up to the Grade 1 Personal Ensign Invitational.

 

"She's had a couple works here and she' s doing well," said Mott. "She seemed like she came out of her work in good order. She'll work again before the race, I guess next weekend. She's been working [quickly] recently. She's working right along, but she's doing that well within herself. She's not being pushed to do that; she's doing that on her own courage, under wraps."

 

Mott was lukewarm when discussing Flat Out's four-furlong breeze in 49.28 on the Oklahoma training track on Monday.

 

"I didn't think he was quite as sharp as he had been before [his victory in the Grade 2] Suburban [Handicap on July 6], but the work was OK," said Mott. "It wasn't his best work, but we've got a couple more before the [Grade 1, $750,000] Woodward [on August 31]."
