Ransom the Moon Wins Bing Crosby Stakes at Del Mar

Del Mar racetrack in Del Mar, California played host to the $300,000 G1 Bing Crosby Stakes on Saturday, July 29 - a wild six-furlong test for horses four years old and upward. 4-1 third choice Ransom the Moon's gained his first grade 1 score by taking advantage of his combatants for this race drifting wide in the stretch. He took the economical route and emerged victorious by 1 1/2 lengths over 8-5 favorite Roy H and 14-1 longshot Moe Candy got in for third - a head back of 9-5 second choice Drefong who was DQ'd after unseating jockey Mike Smith early in the race. Still, a show spot is a show spot. Kobe's Back was fourth in the field of nine with Solid Wager, Denman's Call, Magic Taste, St. Joe Bay and riderless Drefong completing the order of finish.
