We Will See, winner of more than $500,000 and undefeated at The Meadows, and Versado, a colt purchased for the express purpose of winning the “Pace for the Orchids,” head a deep, accomplished field of 22 three-year-old colts and geldings who will contest the $700,000 Delvin Miller Adios at The Meadows.
Three eliminations will be held Saturday afternoon, July 24, with the top three finishers from each advancing to the final the following Saturday afternoon. The eliminations will go as races 9, 10 and 11 on the July 24 card, with Race 9 post time at approximately 3:25 pm.
We Will See, a son of Western Hanover-Aberdakara, finished a close second in the final of the North America Cup and a narrowly beaten third in the Rooney. Just as importantly, he has excelled at The Meadows, capturing three stakes in as many tries.
“He likes The Meadows, and so do I,” said Sam DePinto, who trains We Will See for Shannon DePinto and Earl Smith.
Trainer Ron Burke privately acquired Versado several weeks ago, hoping that the gelded son of Dragon Again-Beach Jenny would repeat the feat of May June Character, who won the 2007 Adios for the Burke stable. In his first start for new owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Howard Taylor and Edwin Gold, Versado handily won a Pennsylvania Sires Stake division in 1:50.3.
