After winning his first two career starts, Delegation placed in a stakes race at Canterbury Park before finishing third in his graded stakes debut in the Play the King Stakes (Can-G2) in August 2012.
The Speightstown gelding has shown a nice blend of brilliance with consistency so far in his career. The brilliance was on display in a front-running victory in the Durham Cup Stakes (Can-G3) in October 2012 at Woodbine, Delegation's first career stakes win.
Delegation finished third in the 2012 Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (G1) and headed into the 2013 season with an Allowance race win and a second place finish in the Eclipse Stakes (G2), both at Woodbine. Continuing to show leadership he made his first win of the year in the grade 3 Dominion Day Stakes by a strong 9 1/4 lengths.
