Delta Downs track report


Simply Jolie, who has won three of her four starts by a combined 14 3/4 lengths, will be tested for class on Saturday night when she meets Grade 3 winner Wacky Patty in the $40,000 Genesis at Delta Downs.

The five-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies drew a full field of 10, including Spoiled, the first foal from Grade 3-winning racemare Little Sister.

Simply Jolie figured the racing game out quickly. She won her maiden by 3 1/2 lengths in her debut in July, and added Lasix after finishing fifth in an entry-level allowance one start later.

Simply Jolie went on to win an allowance and the $40,000 Delta Belle, both at five furlongs at Delta.

"She loves this track," said Chad Hassenpflug, who trains Simply Jolie for Jack Meyer. "She's a real solid filly. She does everything you ask of her."

Carl Woodley has the mount Saturday.

Wacky Patty will be formidable. She is cutting back to one turn after racing over two last out in the $250,000 Delta Princess. In that race, she finished sixth to Salty Romance, who is expected to run at Santa Anita on Sunday in the $100,000 Santa Ysabel.

Wacky Patty's most prestigious win came over six furlongs in the Grade 3 Landaluce at Hollywood Park in July. She is trained by Cole Norman and will be ridden by Carlos Gonzalez.

Wacky Patty figures to be prominent from her rail post in the Genesis, while Simply Jolie can get a stalking trip from post 9.

Spoiled, trained by Steve Asmussen, won her maiden at Keeneland and finished second last out in an entry-level allowance at Fair Grounds.

Also in the race are Sun Sapphire, who has won her last two starts, and stakes winner Spring Rade.
