Delta Downs: Prince Slew sharp


Prince Slew ($26.20) picked an opportune time to recapture his best form. Sunday night at Delta Downs, he drove to a head win over favored Oak Hall in the $150,000 Gold Cup, a one-mile race restricted to 3-year-olds and up bred in Louisiana.

The win was Prince Slew's first since June 2001.

Prince Slew covered the one mile over a fast track in 1:39.27.
