Royal Delta Wins Black Eyed Susans
With a short field of five, Royal Delta tracked the front-runners, then came on with a surge to win the Black Eyed Susans Stakes by 2 and 1/2 lengths. Coax Liberty and Art Of The Hunt were scratches. Buster's Ready finished second with Hot Summer in a close third. Love Theway Youare finished fourth, and Wyomia, the co-betting favorite, trailed the field. Wyomia usually drops back at the beginning of the race and finishes with a strong acceleration. Today, she ran in the first and second places, and ran out of gas with a quarter-mile to go. Royal Delta paid $5.60 to win, in this, her fourth race in her life time, and first Stakes race. Her grandsires are Unbridled and A.P. Indy. You go, girl!
