Teacher Mark Glatt made what has confirmed to be an astute determination when he claimed a gelding named Citadel out of a five-furlong turf dash at Del Mar on Aug. 25. Citadel used to be flippantly raced for a 6-year-old, having made simply 12 begins on the time, a significant portion of which were in claiming corporate.

Glatt’s determination to run Citadel within the $100,000 California Flag Stakes will have been unexpected to a few, however it ended up being very fortuitous after Citadel went wire-to-wire to notch his first stakes win. 

The victory garnered Citadel a Brisnet Velocity Ranking of 104, which used to be the co-fastest of the week. Additionally incomes a 104 ultimate week used to be Lucullan, who captured the Knickerbocker Stakes (G2) on Oct. 14. The Knickerbocker, just like the California Flag, is a turf race. Not like its West Coast counterpart, then again, the Knickerbocker is a path contested over 9 furlongs, while the California Flag is a Five 1/2-furlong dash.
