Trainers Graham Motion and Jonathan Sheppard each have entered two mares in what appears to be a contentious renewal of the $200,000 Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes (gr. IIIT) July 11 at Delaware Park.
Lady of Gold
- Bay Filly
- Born 2010
Glen Hill Farm's Diversy Harbor, a first-time graded stakes winner in her last race, highlights a field of 11 older fillies and mares in the 1 1/8-mile Santa Ana Stakes (gr. IIT) March 15 at Santa Anita Park.
Making her first start for Neil Drysdale, Three Hearts took the lead in the stretch at odds of 29-1 and proved too tough while holding off Lady of Gold in the $100,000 Red Carpet Handicap (gr. IIIT) Nov. 22 at Del Mar.
Strut the Course unleashed a powerful rally and drew clear to a five-length victory in the $150,000 Maple Leaf Stakes (Can-III) Nov. 1 at Woodbine.
Jockey Rajiv Maragh is scheduled to return to the races Feb. 28, a little less than two months after sustaining a hairline fracture to the T3 vertebrae of his upper back in a Dec. 31 spill at Aqueduct Racetrack.
