Ringy Dingy takes White Clay Creek Stakes
Wilmington, Del., October 13, 2023 — Peter Callahan and James Reilly McDonald’s Ringy Dingy won the $100,000 White Clay Creek Stakes at Delaware Park today.
With Katie Davis aboard, the 2-year-old daughter of Dialed In scored by 6 ¼-lengths and returned $2.60 as the favorite in the field of six. Miss Ellary, with Mychel Sanchez, finished second. It was a length farther back to Top Blue, with Kevin Gomez, in third. Still Game, with John Hiraldo, cut early fractions of :48.56 for the half mile and 1:14.27 for the three-quarter mile before fading into fifth. The final time for the one mile was 1:40.36 over a fast main track.
Ringy Dingy, a Kentucky-bred trained by Danny Gargan, raised her career mark to two wins from three starts with earnings of $113,700.
“It was not our game plan,” said winning rider Katie Davis. “It kind of fell out the clouds because of the break when she got squeezed out of there. But we did not panic. I just let her get under feet. When we hit the backside, they drew away from us a little bit. I gathered her, dropped my hands at the half mile pole and got my position. The rail opening made it a perfect trip and from there, we were home.”
