Princess of Sylmar towers over a field of five rivals in Saturday’s $750,000 Delaware Handicap. The prestigious race for fillies and mares will be contested at a mile and a quarter on the main track and will carry Grade 1 status for the second consecutive year.

Even money on the morning line, Princess of Sylmar will be attempting to earn her second win of the year and rebound after suffering a neck defeat to rival Close Hatches in the Ogden Phipps (G1) in June. The chestnut four-year-old daughter of Majestic Warrior will be ridden by regular rider Javier Castellano and will break from the outside in the field of six for trainer Todd Pletcher. She has won nine of her thirteen starts.

Molly Morgan goes for back-to-back stakes wins

Second choice at 3-1 is Molly Morgan, a five-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper trained by Dale Romans. Corey Lanerie is scheduled to be in the irons and she exits an upset victory in the Fleur de Lis Handicap (G2) at Churchill Downs in her most recent start. She has won five times in her career and is looking for her second consecutive graded stakes victory.

Gamay Noir proven at Delaware Park

Martin Wolfson will send out longshot Gamay Noir, 10-1 on the morning line, to try to pull the upset. The four-year-old daughter of Harlan’s Holiday will have Daniel Centeno aboard after the pair won the Obeah Stakes at Delaware Park in June. She is a multiple graded stakes winner with five total wins to her credit. She is scheduled to break from post position four.
