Wilmington, Del., July 9, 2022 — Arindel’s Key Biscayne posted the upset victory in the $200,500 Grade III Robert G. Dick Memorial at Delaware Park today.

 

With Daniel Centeno aboard, the 5-year-old daughter of Brethren retuned $74.20 as the second longest shot in the field of nine before notching a 1 ¼-length triumph. Sister Otoole, with Kendrick Carmouche, finished second 1 ¾-lenghs in front of Gladys, with Jaime Rodriguez, in third.  Gladys set the early pace of 1:18.25 for the three-quarters mile and 1:44.79 for the mile.  The final time for the mile and three-eighths was 2:25.59 over a soft turf course.

 

The Florida-bred conditioned by Juan Alvarado, raised her career record to six wins from 23 starts with earnings of $435,758.

 

“The plan was to try and stay close,” said winning rider Daniel Centeno. “She broke really good and she saved a lot of ground.  She got a perfect trip.  At the half-mile I asked her and I knew I had a lot of horse.  I took a look and I did not see anybody coming and that was when I thought we had a pretty good chance.  When we turned for home and took the lead, she just opened up.”
