Way Bettor, the full sister to double O’Brien Award winner L A Delight, scored her first lifetime victory tonight at The Raceway in London.
With Alfie Carroll at the controls the Bettors Delight daughter went straight to the top and clicked off panels of :30.2, 1:01.4 and 1:32.1 and was home with a two length cushion in 2:01. Favourite C Mary was second with Mystery Midnight third.

It was the third lifetime start for Way Bettor owned and bred by trainer Bob McIntosh and partners CSX Stables and Al McIntosh, the same trio behind her famous sister. Now four, L A Delight has won $1.4 million in her career to date and included the Jugette among her victories last season.
The girls older brother, Somewhere In L A went over the $1 million mark in lifetime earnings earlier this year. He’s drawn post five in the richest stake of the 2017 season to date, the $529,000 Levy final on Saturday at Yonkers.
