W.C. Racing, Dave Kenney and RAP Racing’s Goldencents took the lead at the start of the $1, 000,000 Delta Downs Jackpot Stakes (G3) and held it all the way, easing away in the final furlong to a 1-3/4 length victory. It’s the first stakes win for the 2-year-old colt by Into Mischief, trained by Doug O’Neill and purchased by Dennis O’Neill for $62,000 out of the Southern Chase Farm (Greg and Karen Dodd) consignment at the 2012 OBS June Sale. The O’Neill brothers took I’ll Have Another out of last year’s OBS April Sale and won the 2012 Kentucky Derby (G1) and Preakness (G1). Goldencents’ first stakes win gives him a 3-2-1-0 record and earnings of $722,000. watch his under tack video
