What: Hockessin Stakes Who: Immortal Eyes

Where: Delaware Park
When: Wednesday, June 18

The Hockessin Stakes is showcased at the underrated track of Delaware Park on Wednesday and online sports betting site players that like speed, have options in this event for older runners.

Carded at 6 furlongs, the $50,000 stakes has attracted a full field of 12 and they have a smorgasbord of ability from post 1 to 12.

Major King draws the inside and he???s in tough. He is making his third stateside start after shipping from Korea and appears well overmatched.

Immortal Eyes has speed, has class, has won 19 of 50 and he can run.

Dagburnit likes to cut it close on his best day and he has to find a way to turn the tables on his arch rival King Henry, who just beat him by 2 lengths.

Royal Currier is 0 for 2 since being claimed for $100,000 and he had his head handed to him by Immortal Eyes last year.

Service for Ten is a multiple stakes winner, is Grade 3 placed and he has won half of his 16 starts.

Bandbox was beaten by a repeater last time and he will be a player with the A game. He won a Grade 3 in his second start this year when recording a 102 Beyer Speed Figure.

King Henry is proven locally and will be attempting to turn the hat trick here. He has solid natural speed but he can sit just off the pace and still perform.

Picko???s Pride has won a third of his 21 starts and he is out to defend his title in the Hockessin. Last year he was coming off a tough defeat in April before adding wraps. He sat fifth early and came away late.

Won the War is battle tested and he comes off a clever head win. That???s the good news, the bad news is he just beat much softer.

Action Andy has been around the block and back and he???s had a nice career but he has not won a stakes since 2012.

Evolution Rocks is out to make amends after failing as the one-two chalk. He was beaten by King Henry after bobbling at the start. The gelding has won 9 of his 26 starts and his trainer Jorge Navarro is popping at a 30% clip this year.

Broad Rule comes off a dull effort and he has lost all 7 starts at Delaware.

This is a wide-open fray but let???s give the nod to Immortal Eyes. He was bought in a private sale by his trainer David Jacobson and just that fact the trainer went into his own pocket speaks volumes.

Proven fresh, he handles any kind of going and he has shown he can step up to the plate and hit it out of the ballpark when he won the $350,000 DeFrancis Dash last year with a 108 Beyer.

Anything close to a repeat of that effort and the rest are running for minor awards.
