Tree of Life Pre-Entered in Million Dollar Delta Jackpot
WPT’s 2-year-old colt Tree of Life is amongst 15 juveniles entered in the $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot scheduled to run on Saturday, November 17 in Louisiana.
A son of Lion Heart trained by Craig Dollase, Tree of Life won his first two starts, a maiden race at Del Mar and the Barretts’ Juvenile Stakes at Fairplex. He had a tough trip in the Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland in early October, but came out of the race in great shape and is ready to return to the bullring.
Aaron Gryder, fresh off a win in the Breeders’ Cup Marathon aboard Calidoscopio is scheduled to breeze Tree of Life on Thursday morning at Hollywood before making the trip to Delta Downs.
Official entries for the Delta Jackpot are taken Wednesday, November 14. The winner of the race earns 10 points toward qualification for the 2013 Kentucky Derby.
