Eclipse Award winner Royal Delta bobbled at the start but quickly recovered and drew away in the backstretch for a dominant victory Sunday in the $100,000 Sabin Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

Ridden by Mike Smith, Royal Delta ran 1-1/16 miles in 1:43.31. All for Thee, who was ridden by Jose Lezcano, finished second, 3-1/2 lengths clear of Grace Hall, the 2-1 second choice.

Royal Delta, the 2-5 favorite, paid $2.80 for a $2 win bet.

Royal Delta's victory capped a big weekend for trainer Bill Mott, who saddled three winners at Gulfstream on Saturday, including The Very One Stakes winner Starformer.

Royal Delta is scheduled to run in the $10 million Dubai World Cup on March 30.
