WILMINGTON, DE – Phoenix Thoroughbreds’ Crazy Beautiful romped to an easy victory in Saturday’s $300,000 Delaware Oaks (G3) at Delaware Park.

With Mike Smith aboard, the daughter of Liam’s Map returned $2.60 as the favorite in the field of nine. The Kentucky-bred trained by Kenneth McPeek won by 6 lengths and covered the mile and 1/16 in 1:46.33 over a good main track.
Midnight Obsession, with Joe Bravo, finished second 2 3/4 lengths in front of Leader of the Band, with Frankie Pennington, in third.
In her previous outing, Crazy Beautiful won the Summertime Oaks (G2) at Santa Anita on May 30. Smith, aboard for the second straight start, could not have been happier with her effort.
“She jumped better than she ever has leaving the gate,” said winning rider Mike Smith. “It has always been a little bit of a problem with her. I was really happy with that just because of the track being good and because there was not a lot of speed in the race, I wanted to be somewhat closer. We had one tiny anxious moment just past the 3/8 pole when they picked it up and she kind of lost focus briefly. I barely touched her and she threw me into the rumble seat. That is when I knew we would be fine. After that, it was just all her. I took a peek at the big screen and I felt like I was watching Sunday night football.”
Crazy Beautiful raised her career record to 5 wins and 3 seconds from 10 starts with earnings of $700,865.
