Delaware Park News & Notes

Luna Time posts upset victory in Obeah Stakes

Wilmington, Del., June 20, 2015 — Dorsey Brown and Richard Palmer’s Luna Time may have punched her ticket for the Grade I Delaware Handicap on July 18 by posting a upset victory in the $100,000 Grade III Obeah Stakes at Delaware Park today.

With jockey Forest Boyce aboard, the 4-year-old daughter of Malibu Moon notched a 3–length score and covered the mile and an eighth in 1:49.58.  The Maryland-bred trained by H. Graham Motion returned $32.80.  The 5-to-2 favorite in the field of eleven, Joint Return, with Kendrick Carmouche, finished second a neck in front of Montana Native, with Alex Cintron in third.

“I was loaded for bear today,” said winning jockey Forest Boyce.  “She never ever really relaxed 100% but she kept getting stronger which gave me confidence.  When I did ask her at 3/8ths pole, she really responded.”

The Obeah Stakes was the first career stake victory for Luna Time who raised her record to four wins from nine starts $195,000.

Live racing will be conducted on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from June 1 through September 1.  Beginning on September 8, Tuesday races will be dropped from the schedule and live racing will be conducted on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday through closing day October 17.  Daily first race post time is set for 1:15 p.m.
