On Saturday, the featured race at Delta Downs is the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot. Restricted to two-year-olds, the Grade 3 race will be contested at one mile and has drawn a field of ten colts and geldings.
Exaggerator tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 2-1 for trainer Keith Desormeaux. A dark bay son of Curlin, he was purchased for $110,000 as a yearling and has won two of his five starts including the Saratoga Special (G2) in August. He was last seen finishing fourth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1). Regular rider Kent Desormeaux will be in the irons and they will break from post position nine.
Sunny Ridge heading in the right direction
Second choice at morning line odds of 7-2 is Sunny Ridge for trainer Jason Servis. A gray son of Holy Bull, the gelding has been on the board in three of his four starts and is a two-time winner. He is trying to earn the first graded stakes victory of his career and was second in the Champagne Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park last time out. Irad Ortiz, Jr. will be aboard and they will break from post position three.
Class test for Found Money
Also in the field at morning line odds of 6-1 is Found Money for trainer Doug O’Neill. A California-bred son of Square Eddie owned and bred by Reddam Racing, he has been on the board in four of his five starts and has two victories. He is stepping up to graded stakes competition after two consecutive runner-up efforts and will break from post position seven under jockey Mario Gutierrez.
