From The Thoroughbred Daily News
The lightly raced Trickle In got her first black-type win in Delaware Park Christiana S. in her second stakes try. A first-out maiden winner at this distance on Belmont’s lawn last October when trained by Jonathan Thomas, the bay was switched to Michael Stidham for her second start and win when shortened slightly to a mile for an allowance/optional claimer at Fair Grounds Jan. 17. Sent in the Shantel Lanerie Memorial Overnight S. Feb. 8, Trickle In didn’t get her customary lead and weakened to fourth.
Back on the lead in the Christiana, Trickle In showed the way throughout fractions of :23.57 and :47.54. Pressured from the outside by Toolcat (Kitten’s Joy) and eventually headed by that one on the turn, Trickle In held sway through three-quarters in 1:11.20. As Toolcat faded in the lane while Duchess of Sussex and Embossed had her in their sights, Trickle In remained strong for a length triumph.
