Gourmet Dinner Takes Delta Jackpot

Two years ago Big Drama shipped in to Delta Downs from Calder Race Course after sweeping the Florida Stallions Stakes series and won the Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes (G3). Gourmet Dinner followed the recent Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) winner’s hoof steps on Saturday with a visually impressive score in the $1-million Jackpot under Sebastian Madrid.


A bay Trippi colt owned by Our Sugar Bear Stable, Gourmet Dinner won the Affirmed and Dr. Fager divisions of the Florida Stallion series at Calder before a runner-up finish in the In Reality division as the 3-to-5 favorite on October 16 in his previous start.


Gourmet Dinner showed he was back on his game approaching the stretch in the Delta Jackpot. He surged to the lead after a sweeping bid and shook free to prevail by 2 1/4 lengths at 20-to-1 odds.
