Race 7 at Delaware Park on Wednesday is the $50,000 Stanton Stakes, a 1 1/16 mile grass contest that drew a field of seven sophomore colts.
#1 Burnin Ring O Fire (15-1) comes in off consecutive fourth place efforts at Charles Town, where he has spent most of his career. Last year he was a two-time stakes winner there sprinting, but stretches out for the first time today.
#2 Eons (6-1) is a $300,000 son of Giant’s Causeway who is coming off two straight wins, first at Keeneland and then at Pimlico. Both races were at today’s distance. Arnaud Delacour trains.
#3 Caladan (4-1) exits a win over a mile and 70 yards here on May 8. That was his fourth win in six tries, but he has never tried turf.
#4 Five Star General (2-1), the second Delacour trainee, is a son of Distorted Humor out of a Bernardini mare. He was fourth in a grass stake at Aqueduct on April 20 and hasn’t run since, but did work consecutive bullets at Fair Hill since then. He was a stakes winner on the dirt at Aqueduct in November.
#5 Regally Irish (3-1) was an Aqueduct stakes winner two back, and has won three of eight total. Last out he was fifth on the synthetic at Presque Isle, but returns to turf today where he has won two of three. Graham Motion trains the son of Regal Ransom.
#6 Credit Swap (6-1) is a Michael Stidham trainee by Exchange Rate. He broke his maiden at Monmouth in September by 6 ¼ lengths, then ran sixth beaten three lengths in a stakes at Keeneland before concluding his season with a win in a sprint at the Fair Grounds. He hasn’t run since and will make his 2019 bow today.
#7 Mountain Holiday comes in for trainer Keith Nations. The son of Sky Mesa was a winner over a mile at Tampa on debut, then finished a narrowly beaten second in an allowance over this track. He worked a bullet here on June 4.
