Delaware Park’s Biggest Day Attracts Top Horses

There are no bigger days in Stanton, Delaware than Delaware Handicap Day – DelCap Day for locals.  It is the signature event for the only thoroughbred track in Delaware. Much like many other things in the Delaware Valley, built in 1937, the track was designed and built by William DuPont. And, as with many DuPont endeavors, it is green, it is lush and it is beautiful.

Royal Delta winning at Pimlico, before being sold at sale to Besilu Stables, for whom she will run in this weekend's Delaware Handicap.

Yes, there is a racetrack, and even a casino, but the paddock area and the picnic grove transform the Delaware Park experience from a racing outing to a family outing. To stand along the wall to the paddock and the walking ring is to be instantly transformed into the 1950's. You can imagine what it was like to attend a great racetrack when racing was America's most attended sport.

Behind you is an outdoor concession area with a gigantic grill, wagering stations, if you are so inclined, picnic tables, a playground, a basketball hoop and volleyball court and much more. When the horses come onto the track, just take a short walk to the tree-lined rail and watch some great races.

On Saturday, Delaware Park will have some great horses, especially in the feature Delaware Handicap. The $750,000 pursed handicap is a Grade II affair for fillies and mares.  Awesome Maria, who will be ridden by jockey Ramon Dominguez, is the local favorite. She will have to upset current Eclipse Award winner Royal Delta, who is the morning line favorite.

If you only want to see great racing, DelCap Day will deliver. But, if you really want a racetrack experience for the whole family, Delaware Park is definitely the place to be this Saturday.
