July 20 Maiden Result
Weemissfrankie Flies Home
There were no scratches, as all 10 ran on the Polytrack. Weemissfrankie (Sunriver - Starinthemeadow by Meadowlake) took the early money, but Cha Cha Latte (After Market - Our Friend Terry by Cox's Ridge) was the slight choice at post time. Punch Drunk (Corinthian - Punch Appeal by Successful Appeal) was almost 10-1. Smoke Train (Medaglia d'Oro - Stormy Spell by Tsunami Slew) caught my eye in the paddock, and Punch Drunk made a decent appearance. Weemissfrankie looked good on the track. The load was pretty smooth. Love My Way (Pomeroy - Big City Joy by Joyeux Danseur) protested a bit, and was loaded sans jockey. She came out running, however, to set the early pace. Punch Drunk was her closest pursuer. Not far off were Sweet Nothings (Street Cry (IRE) - Dutchess Mojo by Deputy Minister) and Lady Fairbanks (Pure Prize - Yes It's Royalty by Yes It's True). Love My Way continued to lead into the stretch, but Lady Fairbanks was mounting a challenge. It looked like the race would be decided between these two, but flying on the outside was Weemissfrankie. She rolled on by, to win by 1/2 length. Lady Fairbanks and Love My Way finished together, with just a nose separating them, Sweet Nothings ran evenly to take fourth, and Cha Cha Latte checked in fifth. Punch Drunk weakened to ninth after her early involvement. Wemissfrankie, who set a new track record for 5 furlongs on the Polytrack at Del Mar, is the second winner for her sire Sunriver. Sunriver has now had two starters, and two winners. Watch the Replay.
