Wilmington, Del., July 11, 2012 — Haras Interlagos’s Bubbly Jane rates as the slight favorite in the $200,000 Grade III Robert G. Dick Memorial at Delaware Park this Saturday. The mile-and-three-eighths turf test for fillies and mares, which is the supporting feature on the Delaware Oaks card, has attracted a field of eight.
Bubbly Jane ran second beaten 3 ¾-lengths in the Robert G. Memorial last year. The 7-year-old daughter of Yagil has made only two starts since then. The Brazil-bred conditioned by Todd Pletcher followed by being finishing unplaced in the $77,000 Omnibus Stakes at Monmouth Park on September 5. In her only outing this year, she ran second beaten a length in the $90,000 Mohegan Sky at Belmont Park on June 16. She has a career record of six wins, three seconds and two thirds from 14 starts with earnings of $247,527.
Lael Stable’s Senada rates as the second choice. In her most recent, she finished third in the Grade III Bewitch at Keeneland on April 26. Previously, the 5-year-old daughter of Pulpit ran seventh in the Grade III Orchid Handicap at Gulfstream Park on March 31. The Kentucky-bred trained by Jonathan Sheppard has a career record of two wins, four seconds, and eight thirds from 20 starts.
