Richard's Kid joins top 10 with Pacific Classic win
By: SPORTS NETWORK
New York, NY (Sports Network) - Richard's Kid's second straight win of the Pacific Classic catapulted him into 10th place in this week's NTRA National Thoroughbred Poll. The five-year-old had not received one vote the previous week.
Trained by Bob Baffert, Richard's Kid joined Tinner's Way and Skimming as the only two-time winners of Del Mar's signature race. The five-year-old received 21 points to put him into the top 10, replacing Life At Ten who was third in Sunday's Personal Ensign Stakes.
Two-time champion mare Zenyatta remains solidly in first-place with 14 top votes and 181 points.
Quality Road (133 points) and Lookin At Lucky (130) hold steady in third and fourth, respectively.
Blind Luck (101) and Paddy O'Prado (43) each advanced one spot in the poll, taking advantage of Sunday's loss by 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra.
Rachel Alexandra suffered a one-length defeat to Persistently in the Personal Ensign at Saratoga. Rachel's point total fell from 113 to 36 to drop her into seventh.
Two-time Eclipse Award winner Gio Ponti (24) and five-year-old mare Proviso (22) retained their respective places in eighth and ninth.
