Peter Redekop’s And Tell Me Nolies dug in late and just caught race favorite Home Cooking at the wire to register a notable upset in Saturday’s Grade I, $301,000 TVG Del Mar Debutante Stakes.
Ridden by veteran Ramon Vazquez, who was recording the first Grade I tally of his career, the bay filly by the late Arrogate covered the seven furlong distance in 1:23.29 to get up by a head. Peter Miller trains the winner.
Home Cooking, who is owned by the partnership of Pegram, Watson and Weitman, went off at odds of 7-10 and just missed. Finishing third, three and three-quarter lengths farther back, was Perry and Ramona Bass’ Ice Dancing.
And Tell Me Nolies earned a check for $180,000 for her efforts and now has two wins in three starts and earnings of $232,800.
The winner paid $21.60, $5.40 and $3.00. Home Cooking returned $2.60 and $2.10, while Ice Dancing paid $2.60 to show.
The TVG Del Mar Debutante is considered the championship event of the Del Mar meeting for 2-yar-old fillies.
RAMON VAZQUEZ (And Tell Me Nolies, winner) – “I told Peter (trainer Miller) that I had confidence in this filly right from the start. I’m glad he was loyal to me and let me ride her in this one. She was a runner all the way today. And I knew I was the winner at the wire. This is my first Grade I win. It is so amazing. I want to thank Peter for giving me this chance. This is amazing.”
PETER MILLER (And Tell Me Nolies, winner) – “I didn’t see a ton of speed on the form. We were drawn inside. I think he (Ramon Vasquez) wanted to get position, which he did. I did like some of the moves he made. At the five-eighths pole when he beat Cedillo (Vegas Magic) to the spot, and then when he got her outside around the two-and-a-half furlong pole, I felt really good.”
