Equality, under Ramon Dominguez, lurked off the pace in fifth place for the first half-mile, then began his gradual move to the lead. After six furlongs he was just a neck behind leaders Coco's Madness and Root With Style, but by the stretch Equality was at the head of the pack. He covered the distance in 1:41.38. Josephine Abercrombie bred the son of Mt. Livermore and Equilibrate (by Gone West) at her Pin Oak Stud in Kentucky.
Equality, winner of the Tampa Bay Derby (gr. III) added the June 11 Gleaming Stakes to his resume on Tuesday at Delaware Park. The 3-year-old homebred colt racing for Pin Oak Stud won the 8 1/2-furlong event by a length over Coco's Madness. The winner was also the 4-5 favorite and paid $3.60.
