Impressive Debut at Delaware
Wilmington, Del. - Brereton Jones' Raised With Pride was an impressive 2-year-old maiden winner at Delaware Park today.

Ridden by Terry Thompson the daughter of Proud Citizen covered the five furlongs in 1:01.13 on a fast main track and returned $20.40 in the field of eight.
Brereton Jones and Cindy Jones, who is the wife of retired trainer Larry Jones, are the same connections that campaigned Proud Spell to win the Eclipse Award for outstanding 3-year-old filly in 2008.
A E Phi Sensation faded in the furlong before finishing second. It was another 2¼ lengths farther back to Par Lady in third.
