SIR GENGHIS PREVAILS IN THE $100,000 GOLD CUP AT DELTA DOWNS

Delta Downs capped of its new Thoroughbred season on Saturday with a 10-race program that included a pair of stakes races, the $100,000 Gold Cup and the $50,000 Jean Lafitte. Gillian and Kirk L. Harris’s Sir Genghis took the Gold Cup while Ninth Street dominated the Jean Laffite.

 

The Gold Cup field had plenty speed this year and Sir Genghis was one of the early-pace runners. After taking advantage of the rail post position under journeyman rider Thomas Pompell, the Kirk L. Harris trainee followed Queeten through an opening quarter-mile in 23.56 seconds while laying just off the pace. Sir Genghis then took the lead and passed the half-mile in 47.95 and three-quarters in 1:12.87. After that he proved unbeatable through the homestretch, hitting the finish line a half-length in front of Mageez who rallied well but came up short in second. Race favorite Underpressure settled for third, another 1-1/2 lengths behind the runner-up.
