2012 Beldame Result: Royal Delta Runs Away From It's Tricky

Royal Delta pulled away from It's Tricky to win the Beldame by almost 10 lengths at Belmont Park.

Royal Delta put her flat performance in the Personal Ensign behind her and crushed It's Tricky and the rest of the field in the Grade 1 Beldame at Belmont Park. Sent to post as the 4/5 favorite, Royal Delta broke well and sat just off the early speed of It's Tricky through the first six furlongs of the race. At about the midway point on the far turn, Mike Smith moved Royal Delta along side her rival and then began to slowly inch away as the pair entered the top of the stretch. Eddie Castro set It's Tricky down for a serious drive but the filly had no response to Royal Delta's move.

Royal Delta is a four-year-old daughter of Empire Maker out of an A.P. Indy mare (Delta Princess), trained by Bill Mott and ridden by Mike Smith.

The Beldame is part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" program, guaranteeing Royal Delta a spot in the Ladies' Classic on November 2nd at Santa Anita Park.
