Delta Downs wrapped up its first week of live racing on Saturday night with the $100,000 Gold Cup Stakes for Louisiana-bred 3-year-olds and up competing at one mile. Tigertail Ranch’s Trevilion notched the initial stakes win of his career in the event and in the process gave trainer Victor Arceneaux a sweep of the weekend stakes activity. Arceneaux also saddled Mariah’s Galaxy before her score in the $100,000 Magnolia Stakes on Friday night.

Breaking from the outside post position in a field of 10, Trevilion stalked the early pace in the Gold Cup under jockey Diego Saenz sitting two lengths off the lead of Just Stormin. The latter carved out fractional times of 23.46 seconds for the opening quarter mile, and 48.15 for the half. As the field entered the far turn, Just Stormin was gave way to Trevilion who made a three-wide move and powered on to a four-length win over Mageez, who closed late for second. Jimi’s a Star also rallied to grab third, another head behind the runner-up.

year-old colts and geldings. X Clown was the king of the evening after sitting last early on and rolling past the rest of the field to score not only his first career stakes win, but also the first career stakes win for his jockey, Tyler Woodley. X Clown ran the six furlongs in a final time of 1:11.73 over the main track listed as good.

X Clown was allowed to settle in last in the field of six as the even-money favorite, Scotty Boy, and Elusive d’Oro dueled through solid fractions of 22.29 seconds for the quarter-mile and 45.75 seconds for the half. That speed battle took its toll on the pacesetters as Woodley guided X Clown to the outside around the turn and took aim at the leaders. X Clown was able to wear down Elusive d’Oro and prevailed by three-quarters of a length, while Scotty Boy faded to last.
