Petulant Delight Kicks Off 2024 With a 4-Length Score

    Maryquitecontrary closed out First Dude’s 2023 campaign with a sharp stakes victory at Gulfstream Park, and Petulant Delight opened 2024 at Parx Racing with his 12th career victory.

    The 8-year-old gelding bred by Ocala Stud had Wilfred Vasquez in the saddle, and he sent her up on the inside to force the pace early, moved to the two path on the turn, took the lead in the stretch and drew off to score by a comfortable four lengths. The $37,000 OBS April 2-year-old paid $9.60 after racing seven furlongs in 1:27.34, and earned a check for $10,800. That increased his career total to $231,499 on a record of 12-8-4 in 50 starts.
