3YO GREGORY’S PRIDE Rallies to Take Del Mar Maiden Special

First-crop 3-year-old GREGORY’S PRIDE, making his second start since New Year’s Day, came from just off the pace to win this five-furlong Maiden Special Weight on the turf at Del Mar by 3/4 length. Placing behind Santa Anita Derby-G1 winner Rock Your World in his second career start beaten less than two lengths, GREGORY’S PRIDE tracked the frontrunners early only two lengths back. He moved off the rail, went up to challenge for the lead at the eighth pole, then took control and pulled away late to earn the win in his fourth career start. The colt was bred by Nicksar Farms out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare, Haraawa.
