DELICATESSA SERVES UP CLAIRE MARINE STAKES VICTORY
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (September 5, 2004) -- Barr H. Inman's Delicatessa stalked a pedestrian pace, rallied to take the lead at the top of the stretch and drew off to win the $52,800 Claire Marine Stakes by a length and a half on Sunday at Arlington Park. Jesse Campbell was astride the Dare and Go mare who was clocked in 2:35.36 for a mile and a half over firm turf.
The victory, her fifth in 29 lifetime starts, was the first for the Charlie Livesay-trained 5-year-old since she captured the $75,000 Estrapade Handicap in August of 2003. She earned $31,680 Sunday to boost her bankroll to $243,642.
Delicatessa sat off the slow pace set by Kris Star, who set fractions of 26.30, 53.44, 1:19.11 and 1:46.08 before being overtaken by the top three finishers.
Tamarack Bay finished second, a nose ahead of Lifting the Veil. Kris Star, New Dreams and Alleged Whisper completed the order of finish.
Delicatessa, the 8-5 post time favorite, paid $5.20, $3.40 and $2.60. Tamarack Bay returned $7.40 and $4.20. Lifting the Vail paid $3.20.
