Del Mar’s ninth Bing Crosby Season will finish strongly Sunday with a nine-race card enhanced by the 42nd edition of the Grade I, $400,000 Matriarch Stakes for fillies and mares as the highlight of the afternoon.
Adding additional luster to the fall finale is the Grade III, $100,000 Cecil B. DeMille for 2-year-olds.
The Matriarch, which goes as Race 7, will be headed by its defending champion, Peter Brant’s Regal Glory, a 6-year-old multi-millionaire mare who captured last year’s edition of the stakes by two and a half lengths in a front-running effort. All told, the sparkling daughter of Animal Kingdom has won 12 of her 22 starts – most of them stakes – and banked a total of $2,379,134.
Regal Glory ran one of the few lackluster races of her career last out in the Breeders’ Cup Mile against colts at Keeneland on November 5, but the fact that trainer Chad Brown put her on a plane headed west less than a month later speaks well of how she recovered from that effort. Top rider Flavien Prat has the call.
Brown has some serious history with the Matriarch at Del Mar. Of the eight runnings so far, he’s shipped in and sent out the winner four times. And he’ll be favored to do it again Sunday.
