Saturday, Dec. 2:
CHP RACING’s juvenile filly LADY DE BERRY (’21 Practical Joke / Tortuga Lady) faced off against nine other fillies Saturday at Del Mar in the Grade 3 ‘Jimmy Durante Stakes’ going 1 mile over a firm turf course. Content to settle at the back of the pack under jockey FLAVIEN PRAT, the filly angled out in the stretch to finish strongly, falling just a neck short of the victory. This impressive runner-up placing earns the CHAD BROWN trainee her first black type out of only three career starts.
Bred in Kentucky by PETER BLUM THOROUGHBREDS LLC, the daughter of Practical Joke was purchased by top bloodstock agent MIKE RYAN out of this year’s OBS March Sale. She has now tallied one win and one second from three starts and has earned $77,205.
Good luck to LADY DE BERRY and her connections in 2024!
