D.J. Stable and Cash is King Stables Jaywalk will be seeking her first victory since winning the in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies when she faces six rivals in the mile and a sixteenth $300,000 Delaware Oaks at Delaware Park this Saturday.
The Kentucky-bred trained by John Servis closed her 2018 campaign last year by notching a 5 ½-length triumph in the mile and a sixteenth $2,000,000 Grade I Breeders' Cup Juvenile on November 2. In her first start this year, the daughter of Cross Traffic ran fourth in the one mile Grade II Davona Dales Stakes at Gulfstream Park on March 2. She followed with a third in the mile and a sixteenth Grade I Ashland Stakes at Keeneland Racecourse on April 6. In her most recent effort, she was off the board in mile and an eighth Grade Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs on May 3. She has a career record of four wins, a second and a third from eight starts with earnings of $1,456,500.
“She has been doing great since the Kentucky Oaks,” said trainer John Servis. “She has been training great and she could not be better for this race. She has matured some and put on some weight, so we are excited to hopefully get her back on track.”
She will have to contend with Fashion Faux Pas whose stock skyrocketed after she posted an eye-popping 14 ½-length victory in the mile and a seventy yard $50,000 Light Hearted Stakes at Delaware Park on June 5. Previously, the Kentucky-bred trained by Arnaud Delacour ran third in in the one mile $100,000 Hilltop Stakes over the Pimico lawn on May 17. The daughter of Flatter has a career record of three wins, a second and a third from seven starts with earnings of $116,700.
“She has been training very well and I have really been pleased with her,” said trainer Arnaud Delacour. “She breezed three times since the Light Hearted. She has been sharp and I was very impressed with those three breezes. This is the next logical spot for her. Her last race, she was very impressive against a little lesser company. She will be tested for sure in the Delaware Oaks, but we think she will respond positively to the challenge.”
