Welcome back to another edition of horse racing preview! This week's feature comes to us from good ol' Delaware Park, so that can only mean one thing: The Delaware Handicap!
This is Race 9, set for a mile and a quarter on the dirt, is restricted to fillies and mares, and carries a $750,000 purse!
Let's take a look at the field:
She's All In (OK) 15/1
Summer Applause (KY) 7/2
Royal Delta (KY) 1/1
Authenticity (KY) 3/1
And Why Not (KY) 15/1
Centring (KY) 6/1
Royal Delta should be the one to beat in this one. She certainly likes nearly going gate-to-wire, and looks like she can do it with ease. If she gets a good trip, she should be at the top of her game today. Mike Smith returns for trainer William Mott
Nextie! Authenticity should be near RD throughout most the race. Lately she certainly has stalked her way home and even led a few times, but deeper in her PPs she's even closed so this mare can do it all!
Lastie! Now I don't normally take all 3 front runners and put them all in the Tri, but this time is one of my few exceptions. Summer Applause is who I've got rounding out this one. She seems to have a better class then some of the other choices in the field, so that's why I'm sticking her third in this one. So put a blanket over these 3 and watch them cross the finish line, 1, 2, 3.
