CTT and TOC Stakes Trophy Presented to Deron Pearson

TOC’s CEO, Greg Avioli, presented the stakes trophy to Deron Pearson of DP Racing for Friday’s CTT and TOC Handicap at Del Mar.

DP Racing’s English-bred Frenzified, third and second in two middle-distance grass races this summer, stretched out to a mile and three-eighths, a distance she obviously appreciated, and scored an impressive triumph Friday in the featured $78,445 CTT and TOC Handicap for older fillies and mares over the Del Mar turf.

Benefitting from a smartly-judged ride by jockey Santiago Gonzalez, Frenzified tracked the pacesetting 6-5 favorite, Fanticola, until the top of the stretch where she surged to the lead and wasn’t seriously threatened the rest of the way in winning by a length and one-half.

Generosidade closed well to be second, a length and one-quarter ahead of third-place Annulment in the field of six. Fanticola faded to fourth.

Frenzified, a four-year-old daughter of Yeats who ran exclusively in England last year where she won four of nine starts, accomplished the marathon distance Friday in 2:14.84 and returned $11.20, $5.20 and $3.60. Jim Cassidy trains the filly who earned $46,860 to increase her money total to $104,616. Generosidade paid $6.20 and $4.20, while Annulment returned $4 to show.
