Shivermetimbers Wins on Opening Day of Del Mar Meet
Shivermetimbers’ was one of three winners for Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer on opening day of the 2018 Del Mar Summer meet. The 3-year-old son of Shanghai Bobby is owned by Mark DeDomenico and West Point Thoroughbreds.
Shivermetimbers has held good company this year, finishing second and third behind Triple Crown winner and stakes winner Ax Man respectively. The colt is now two for two at Del Mar after breaking his maiden over the strip on Thanksgiving.
“Boy he gave me a workout!” said jockey Mike Smith. “He was really pulling me along down the backside, but I knew I just had to be patient and wait. Once I asked him to go, he was push button. I always had plenty of horse.”
West Point’s Nancy Dollase celebrated the win in the champagne room with a number of West Point Partners in town to kick off the meet.
