Delaunay has been installed as the 8/5 morning line favorite and will break from post six against five rivals. Since being claimed for $40,000 on May 12, 2012 at Churchill Downs by trainer Tom Amoss and owner Maggi Moss, the classy veteran runner has won 12 stakes races including the Grade 2 Churchill Downs in 2013. Delaunay has won 18 of 52 starts in his career for earnings of $1,127,071. Despite his lengthy list of accomplishments, Delaunay has shown signs of slowing down in 2015, with just a single victory in four starts, but has not finished worse than third. In his last start, May 23 at Prairie Meadow, Delaunay finished second in the Ed Skinner Memorial Stakes.
Bobcat Jim vs. Delaunay at the windows
9/5 second choice Bobcat Jim should contend for post-time favoritism after defeating Delaunay in the Ed Skinner and running his record at Prairie Meadows to 3 for 4. Trained by Kenny Smith, Bobcat Jim has been sharp in both starts this year, also defeating allowance company May 3 at Prairie Meadows. The five year-old gelded son of Sharp Humor will break from the rail under jockey Shane LaViolette.
Hard to like Den’s Legacy on top
Den’s Legacy (7/2), has won just 3 of 30 career starts, but has plenty of back-class, including a fourth place effort in the Grade 2 Alysheba Stakes May 1 at Churchill.
