Delaunay has done little wrong since being haltered for $40,000 by these connections last May, winning six of seven starts--all stakes--with his lone loss coming in the Senator Robert C. Byrd Memorial S. at Mountaineer Aug. 4, where he finished fourth. The bay entered this contest off a wire-to-wire score over track and trip in the F.W. Gaudin Memorial S. Jan. 26, where he posted a 110 Beyer. Dueling for the lead from the outset here, the heavy favorite carved out quick fractions before pulling away from his rivals at the top of the lane. The final time was the fastest for the distance since the track record of 1:08.03 was set in 2002. Click for the brisnet.com chart or VIDEO.
