No Pacific Classic for Bourbon Bay

Trainer Neil Drysdale kept his options open by entering Bourbon Bay in the TVG Pacific Classic on Wednesday then closed them Thursday morning by entering the Sligo Bay gelding in Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 Del Mar Handicap.


Rules prohibit entry in both races, since they are scheduled on the same day, and delayed decision-making.  So the choice of the Del Mar Handicap, contested at 1 3/8 miles on the Jimmy Durante Turf Course, constituted an automatic scratch of Bourbon Bay from the Classic.


Bourbon Bay has been primarily a turf horse through his career. Bourbon Bay has made 18 of 20 lifetime starts on the grass, compiled six of seven wins on the surface, and generated $598,086 of his $684,424 earnings. A victory in the Grade III Cougar II Handicap, at 1 ½ miles on Del Mar’s Polytrack, prompted consideration for the Classic.


The Handicap, which will be run as the third race on an 11-race card, drew a field of six. From the rail out the lineup is: Make Music For Me (Rafael Bejarano), Medici Code (Martin Pedroza),  Bourbon Bay (Joe Talamo), Celtic New Year (Victor Espinoza),  Soul Candy (Joel Rosario) and Imponente Purse (Chantal Sutherland).
