DALE’S LIL SIS SNARES FIRST STAKES
WIN IN THE $70,000 LOOKOUT AT DELTA DOWNS
- KARL BROBERG TRAINEE EXTENDS HER WINS STREAK TO FOUR IN A ROW -
VINTON, LA. – Delta Downs hosted the first of two stakes races this weekend on Friday night and it was Dale’s Lil Sis who proved best in the $70,000 Lookout Stakes for Louisiana-bred fillies and mares who had not won a stakes race. The win was her fourth consecutive score at Delta Downs this meet and her 11th overall from 41 career starts.
Starting from the outside post position in a field of nine under jockey C. J. McMahon, Dale’s Lil Sis flashed her customary early speed while leading in the seven-furlong test around two turns. Her fractional times were 24.48 second for the quarter mile, 48.83 for the half and 1:13.79 for three-quarters.
When the field reached the top of the stretch the Karl Broberg trainee took off and extended her lead to 4-3/4 lengths over race favorite Blue Suade Guitar by the time she reached the finish line. Blue Suade Guitar suffered a rough start and settled for the place spot, 3-1/4 lengths to the good of Thegrayspider who rallied from far back to finish third.
Dale’s Lil Sis, who is owned by End Zone Athletics, Inc., covered the distance of the Lookout in a time of 1:27.12 while racing on a fast track.
Dale’s Lil Sis earned $42,000 for the win, which raised the career bankroll to $226,250.
Bred in Louisiana by Indian Creek Thoroughbred Farms LLC, Dale’s Lil Sis is a 5-year-old chestnut runner by Zong, out of the Aldebaran mare Judy.
Sent to the gate as a slight second choice of the wagering public, Dale’s Lil Sis paid $5.80 to win, $3.20 to place and $2.60 to show. Blue Suade Guitar was worth $3 to place and $2.20 to show. Thegrayspider returned $6 to show.
Delta Downs will close out its 12th week of racing on Saturday night with a 10-race program that begins at 5:55 pm CST. The featured race will be the $70,000 B Connected Stakes, carded as the eighth event on the program.
