Resarcio kicked WPT’s Del Mar meet off on a high note Saturday with a brave victory, rallying up the rail and kicking away for a nice breakthrough.
Brice Blanc provided a heady ride on Resarcio, who angled in with a furlong remaining in the mile contest. She was making her fourth career start for trainer John Shirreffs and jumped forward off a pair of close third-place finishes.
Causforcelebration and Desbordes also scored victories for West Point over the weekend as we build up steam for peak summer racing, with Saratoga also set to begin its meet on Thursday. Chestertown will represent the black and gold in the Grade 3 Peter Pan Stakes on opening day at the Spa.
