Delitefull Lady, a well-beaten third with some trouble behind the very promising GII Santa Ynez S. heroine and ‘TDN Rising Star’ Unique Bella (Tapit) in her 6 1/2-furlong Del Mar debut Nov. 26, stamped herself as a filly with a very bright future here. Off at odds of 8-1, the half-sister to Twitter Pie (Harlan’s Holiday), SP, $115,901, pressed the early pace from the inside through a sharp opening quarter in :21.79. Delitefull Lady lost a few lengths on the far turn while holding her position awaiting racing room, but found another gear once tipped out for run at the top of the lane, and turned on the burners very nicely in the stretch to score by 3 3/4 lengths. Highly regarded Richard Mandella-trained first-time starter and 6-5 favorite Paradise Woods (Union Rags) stayed on for second after dueling through a hot pace. The winner’s stakes-placed dam Bird Chatter, a half-sister to Awesome Action (Awesome Again), MSW & MGSP, $785,690, most recently had a Graydar filly in 2015. Bird Chatter brought $30,000 from Tim Hamlin at the 2015 KEEJAN sale while in foal to Graydar. Sales history: $100,000 Ylg ’15 KEESEP; $72,000 2yo ’16 BARMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $37,080.
