Robert S. Evans' Megachurch tops the $100,000 Fairway Fillies Stake to be run at Delaware Park this Saturday. A field of nine has been entered in the mile and a sixteenth turf test for 2-year-old fillies.
In her only career outing, Megachurch, a Kentucky-bred daughter of Pulpit trained by Tim Ritchey, notched a 4 ¼-length maiden victory going one mile over the Delaware Park turf on August 5.
She has been coupled with Blaze of Glory Stable and Tim Ritchey's Bon Jovi Girl. The couple is a formidable entry. Bon Jovi Girl, a daughter of Malibu Moon, has made all three of her career starts at Delaware Park. In her last, the Kentucky-bred trained by Tim Ritchey finished third beaten a neck in a six furlong allowance on August 11. Previously, she won her maiden by 2-lengths going six furlongs on July 26. In her only other career outing, she ran second going five furlongs against maiden competition on July 12. Bo Jovi Girl is a half sister to stake winners Fisher Pond and Gio Ponti.
