1st-Belmont The Big A, $87,300, Msw, 5-16, 2yo, f, 5 1/2f (off turf), 1:06.12, my, 9 lengths.
DELIGHTFUL FLAME (f, 2, Flameaway–Delightful Mary {Ch. 2yo Filly & GSW-Can, MSW & GISP-US, $588,055}, by Limehouse) was smashed into 7-10 favoritism for her Gulfstream debut Apr. 12, but was off to an awkward beginning and never reached contention en route to a distant sixth-place finish. The 3-2 second choice–with $685 on her nose less than the well-meant Moonlight Promises (Promises Fulfilled)–the homebred hit the ground running in this rained-off contest and was soon joined to her outside by the post-time favorite. Matching motors around the turn, it was clear that Delightful Flame was going the better of the two as they reached the stretch and she pulled readily clear in the rain-affected conditions to score by a distance. It was another five lengths back to Triple Sweet (Big Brown) in third. A $500,000 OBS April juvenile, Delightful Mary was the Sovereign Award-winning 2-year-old of her generation in 2010, having finished third in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies. Delightful Mary is a half-sister to MGSW & GISP Delightful Kiss (Kissin Kris), GSP Honour the Deputy (Honour and Glory) and to Chesutoke Rose (Uncle Mo), the dam of Japanese MSW & MG1SP Wilson Tesoro (Jpn) (Kitasan Black {Jpn}). Delightful Flame is the most recent live produce for her dam. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $49,900. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
