Royal Delta Completes Personal Ensign Tune Ups

Royal Delta wins the Delaware Handicap

Royal Delta put in her final serious work for Sunday’s Grade 1, $600,000 Personal Ensign Invitational this morning, breezing four furlongs in a bullet 48.95 seconds under exercise rider Rodolphe Brisset.

 

The move over the Oklahoma training track was the fastest of 18 at the distance.

 

“She worked early, went well,” said Royal Delta’s Hall of Fame trainer, Bill Mott. “She worked well, galloped out well, cooled out well. I’m pleased with the way she is preparing for the race.”

 

The daughter of Empire Maker, last year’s 3-year-old filly champion, enters the 1 1/8-mile Personal Ensign off a neck victory in the Grade 2 Delaware Handicap over Tiz Miz Sue, who is also being pointed to Sunday’s race, as is fourth-place finisher Love and Pride.

 

Trained by Todd Pletcher, Love and Pride breezed four furlongs this morning at Delaware Park in a bullet 47.70, fastest of 29 works at the distance.

 

Pletcher also will saddle R Gypsy Gold, third as the favorite in the Molly Pitcher on July 29 at Monmouth Park , in the Personal Ensign. The 4-year-old Bernardini filly tuned up for Sunday’s race this morning, breezing four furlongs in 48.95 over the main track.
