Royal Delta won the Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic in 2011 and 2012

Likely three-year-old female champion Royal Delta got back into the swing of things Tuesday with her first official work of her four-year-old season.  The daughter of Empire Maker went an easy three furlongs in :36 at Payson Park Training Center in Florida for trainer Bill Mott.

Mott says the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic winner will either train up to or have a prep race for the $10 million Dubai World Cup in March.

“The World Cup is the goal for the first half of the year,” Mott tells the Blood-Horse.  “We'll move in that direction. If all is well we'd love to run back in the Breeders' Cup in the fall. She would obviously have a break after Dubai if we do go, and then we'll start up the second half of the year and hit some of the nicer filly races.”
