Delta Flower is our First Star of the Week

Delta Flower is our First Star of the Week

Three Stars of the Week

– 1st Star: Sea N Suds (AR) – It was Arkansas Bred Stakes week at Oaklawn, and Sea N Suds stole the show on Sunday winning the Rainbow Stakes by a nose. After a tough trip from the rail, Sea N Suds was able to get to the outside down the stretch and wear down Devilishly Clever and He Is a Roadster. For the third straight race the horse demonstrated toughness and heart, two qualities that are great to have no matter what state you were bred in! With Kelly Von Hemel as trainer, you would think Prairie Meadows will be the next time we see this one.

– 2nd Star: Delta Flower (AR) – She was the easiest of winners Saturday in the Rainbow Miss Stakes, as she broke sharp and never looked back winning wire to wire by almost four lengths. The race just confirmed her talents, as the race before was a blowout maiden score. This one might have enough talent to try out-of-state company next time out if they can find the right spot.

– 3rd Star: Mallard’s Bro (AR) – He may be our third star, but there is no doubt his win was the most dramatic of the week! After hanging out toward the back of the back the entire race, Mallard’s Bro gained momentum in the stretch, and was just able to nose past Devil and a Half at the wire. The win was his first in three tries this year, and it was his first win ever at Oaklawn. He’s now earned over 100k for his career, and will most likely resurface at Louisiana Downs next time out.

Flop of the Week

Trace Creek (AR) – He ended up being the favorite in the Arkansas Breeders’ Stakes on Friday after a ton of hype, but in the ended he was a well beaten 9th. Considering you don’t get many chances to run against Arkansas breds once Oaklawn closes, this one has to be disappointing to the connections.
