Royal Delta Confirmed for Alabama

Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott revealed a plan to run Palides Investments’ Royal Delta in next Saturday’s Grade 1 TVG Alabama after pondering a start in the following day’s Grade 2 Woodford Reserve Lake Placid on the turf.

 

Winner of the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan at Pimlico, Royal Delta was third in the Grade 1 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks after bypassing the Grade 1 Mother Goose with a bruised foot.

 

Mott offered a whimsical explanation for his decision to run in the TVG Alabama.

 

“I was laying on my pillow, and I had this dream,” said Mott, leaning back at his office desk and grinning. “The Alabama is a very important race. It’s very prestigious, she’s won a graded stakes on the dirt, and was third in the Coaching Club. We may switch to the grass later on, in a Grade 1 perhaps. Right now, we’re going for the [TVG] Alabama.”

 

Mott confirmed Raison d’Etat, the 3-year-old son of A.P. Indy and Sightseek, will make his next start in the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on August 27. Second in the Curlin on July 29, the Juddmonte Farms homebred breezed five furlongs in 1:01.23 Sunday.

 

“His work was good,” said Mott. “Very good. All systems are ‘go’ right now.”
