Delaware: Danalake handles first route assignment in Our Mims


Trainer Todd Pletcher’s prowess with 2-year-olds stretching out following a maiden win continued Wednesday when favored Danalake cruised to a 1 3/4-length victory in the $51,500 Our Mims Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Delaware Park.

Over the past five years, Pletcher is now 8 for 12 (67 percent) with juveniles making their first start in a route following a maiden victory, including 5 for 9 in stakes.

Danalake ($4.40), ridden by Jose Caraballo, ran the mile on a fast track in 1:39.04

Touring Hong Kong was second at 12-1, six lengths in front of Love Me Good in a field of five.
