Desert Party returns Saturday in Philadelphia

The second home in the 2009 UAE Derby (G2) and winner of the 2010 Mahab Al Shimaal (G3), Desert Party is scheduled to make his first start back since a lackluster eleventh in the 2010 Godolphin Mile (G2).  Saturday’s Don Levine Memorial (Listed) at Philadelphia Park is the setting and a field of six foes are set to draw against the son of Street Cry.

The Levine, run over seven furlongs, could offer Desert Party a good bridge to better company over the course of the season.  Riley Tucker, winner of the Iroquois at Churchill Downs in late May is a narrow favorite on the morning line with Desert Party the second choice.  David Cohen, a winner of the 2006 Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) on board Proud Tower Too, has the mount for Godolphin’s North American assistant trainer, Rick Mettee.
