Delta Downs: Delicate Dynamite perfect on dirt


Delicate Dynamite won her fourth race in a row and her third straight stakes race in the $100,000 Goddess on closing night at Delta Downs. She also remained perfect in four starts on a conventional dirt surface.

Delicate Dynamite ($4.60) was a two-length winner over Plaid, who finished 2 1/4 lengths clear of third-place Game for More.

Delicate Dynamite covered the 1?1/16-miles over a muddy track in 1:44.78. Gerard Melancon rode Delicate Dynamite for trainer Tom Amoss.

Leading rider Tracy Hebert accounted for half of the four stakes on offer, winning the $100,000 Gulf Coast Classic with Silent Pleasure ($5), and the $100,000 Sportsman’s Paradise with Beta Capo ($6.80).

Alba Dabas Secret ($38.80) became a stakes winner in the $100,000 Green Oaks when she dug in for a head win over favorite Magnetic Miss. Marlon St. Julien rode Alba Dabas Secret for trainer Don Roberson.
