Rickman Racing’s 4-year-old Winplaceorshowono defended his title in Delaware Park’s $100,000 New Castle Stakes on Sept. 29, leading at every call and holding off late-running Bubba’s Will to win by a half length.

Sent off as the favorite in the field of eight, the Dale Capuano trained colt covered the six furlongs in 1:10.76 on the main track. Bred by Cynthia K. Rickman, daughter of the late Delaware Park owner William Rickman, the consistent dark bay boasts a record of 9-4-1-3 and earnings of $204,560.

Following his 2017 New Castle score, he competed in the Maryland Million Sprint Handicap, finishing fourth, then concluded his season with a third-place finish behind Struth and Lewisfield in the Howard M. Bender Memorial Stakes at Laurel. He didn’t get his 2018 season underway until nine months later on Sept. 12 at Delaware Park, when finishing second in allowance company.

A son of former Northview Stallion Station sire Dance With Ravens, Winplaceorshowono is out of the unraced Not For Love mare Love’sclevertrick. Rickman purchased Love’sclevertrick as a yearling out of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic fall sale for $35,000. The mare’s other winner, the Smarty Jones colt Clever and Smart, won his only start, a Delaware Park maiden special weight in 2015. The mare hasn’t had a foal since Winplaceorshowono. She was bred to Great Notion this year.
