Flashy Maiden Winner Boltage Heads Del Mar Juv. Turf

A field of nine lightly-raced 2-year-olds topped by impressive maiden winner Boltage  will line up for the $100,000 Del Mar Juvenile Turf Stakes (G3T) closing weekend of the Del Mar summer meet.

Pin Oak Stud’s Boltage, a strapping son of Bolt d’Oro  , was unplaced on the dirt first time out for trainer Richard Mandella before rebounding with an authoritative score on the Del Mar lawn Aug. 24. Stalking the early pace, the colt handily separated himself from his rivals at the top of the lane and coasted clear to a 5 1/4 length score. The runner-up in that mile maiden special weight, Glandford , a European import trained by Edward Freeman, returns in an attempt to turn the tables on Boltage.

Cranking up for the Del Mar Juvenile Turf with a :35 3/5 three-furlong blowout Sept. 4, Boltage will be ridden back by Ramon Vazquez on Sunday.

Although the field comprises of five maidens, there are two notable last-out winners that should challenge probable favorite Boltage.

Team Valor’s Sea Singer , an Irish-bred son of Sea The Moon , captured his maiden June 22 in Ireland. Unraced since that effort, the colt has been breezing steadily the last month towards his North American debut for the Michael McCarthy barn.

McCarthy will also saddle Del Mar debut victor Endlessly  on Sunday. Owned by Amerman Racing, the Oscar Performance   colt overcame a troubled trip to rally home a 2 1/4-length winner of a July 30 maiden special weight.
