Fair Grounds: Delaunay regains best form in Gaudin Memorial


In the winter and spring of 2012, a 5-year-old gelding named Delaunay was claimed five times in six starts. Trainer Jamie Ness had him twice. Dickie Small had him. So did Hugh McMahon and Dane Kobiskie. Trainer Tom Amoss claimed Delaunay for $40,000 in May that year, and Delaunay – never racing for a tag again -- went on a great run. He won7 of 8 starts, all stakes, including a four-length Derby Day romp in the 2013 Grade 2 Churchill Downs Handicap.
