Sister Otoole Repeats In CTT & TOC Stakes At Del Mar by Del Mar Thoroughbred Club|08.19.2023|11:57am Antonio Fresu winning the CTT and TOC Stakes aboard Sister Otoole Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners' Sister Otoole did an instant replay in the featured attraction Friday evening at Del Mar, as she came from last once again – just as she had here in 2022 – and rolled to an impressive 1 1/4-length tally in the $101,000 CTT & TOC Stakes at 11 furlongs on the grass. The winner, a 6-year-old mare trained by eastern-based H. Graham Motion, had the Italian expat Antonio Fresu in the boot. Last year when she won the race by half a length, she had another Italian expat in the irons, Umberto Rispoli. Finishing second in the feature was John McCormack's Eylara, who had a half length on race favorite Neige Blanche, owned by De Seroux, Naify or M. Powell. Final time of the marathon was 2:17.45. The winner picked up a check for $60,000, thus increasing her earnings to $395,470. She paid $12.60 top her backers for the win. Racing resumes at Del Mar Saturday with a 10-race card highlighted by the 67th edition of the Grade 1, $300,000 Del Mar Oaks. First post is at 2 p.m. Sunday's scheduled card has been cancelled because of an oncoming hurricane/tropical storm.
